The Dallas Mavericks and Chicago Bulls meet Monday in NBA action at the United Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Dallas Mavericks vs Chicago Bulls prediction.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks haven't been at their best as they've lost five of their last eight games overall, but they will be aiming for a third straight win after making light work of the Pistons in a 142-124 road defeat on Saturday. Luka Doncic led the team with a triple-double of 39 points with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, Kyrie Irving added 21 points with five assists while Daniel Gafford and Tim Hardaway Jr scored 17 points apiece. As a team, the Mavericks shot 55 percent from the field and 14 of 38 from the 3-point line but they couldn't get any separation until they opened the third quarter on a 22-12 run. The Mavericks will play against the Warriors after this game.

Chicago Bulls

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in decent shape as they've won four of their last six games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this spot after having their three-game win streak halted by the Clippers in a 112-102 road loss on Saturday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 24 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists, Nikola Vucevic added 22 points with 11 rebounds while Coby White chipped in with 19 points, five rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 43 percent from the field and 13 of 35 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in full control when they took an early 14-point lead in the first half, but they couldn't maintain that pace and got dominated by 66-45 in the second half as they just had no answer for the Clippers once they got hot.

  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (4.0).
  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for three-point field goal attempts per game this season (40.0).

Dallas Mavericks vs Chicago Bulls prediction

The Bulls are still without Lonzo Ball and they have Torrey Craig listed as questionable, while the Mavericks don't have a single player listed on the injury report. The Mavericks are starting to heat up again and they would've taken plenty of confidence from their big win in their last outing thanks to another big game from Doncic, but the Bulls were on a nice run before they got stopped in their tracks by the Clippers in their last game. This should be a close one, but I'm leaning towards the Mavericks to get the job done on the road.
