The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 125.3 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 116.3 points on 48.7 percent shooting.

As Ive said before, the Chicago Bulls aren't off to a great start, they already had a players meeting and now Zach LaVine is starting to float in trade rumors. The Bulls aren't in a great spot right now. The Dallas Mavericks are super talented, they're off to a fine start offensively, and the defense should come around eventually. It doesn't hurt that the Mavs are at home here. I'm just not excited to get behind the Bulls, to be honest. Give me the Mavericks and the reasonable chalk, as they start 4-0 for the first time in nearly 20 years.
