The Mavericks vs Bulls is an interconference matchup between two teams that don’t see each other very often. With the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern conference and the Mavericks in the West, these squads play each other just twice a season.
With that said, there is sure to bring plenty of electricity in this game. The Chicago Bulls are one of the younger teams in the league while the Dallas Mavericks have one of the most exciting young athletes in the entire world, let alone the NBA.
That means it will be tough to make Mavericks vs Bulls predictions as there is less recent history to go off of than we are used to. That’s what we are here for – to do the hard work so you don’t have to. Make sure to check out our Mavericks vs Bulls NBA picks below.
Bulls vs Mavericks Against the Spread Pick
This game will take place at 3:00 PM ET in the American Airlines Center.
The Pick: Chicago Bulls
Why bet the Bulls:
✅ The Bulls and Mavericks faced off just a few days ago with the Bulls walking away with a 10-point victory. Zach LaVine was a nightmare for the Mavericks, dropping 39 points with six rebounds and five assists.
✅ Luka Doncic didn’t play in that first game, however, so it’s tough to say how much that one will matter. What won’t change is how easy the Bulls got to the rim. The Mavericks are struggling mightily at the PF and C position with Porzingis out.
✅ The Bulls are the more efficient team from the field, shooting 5% better from the free throw line, 2.5% better from the field, and 3.1% better from three. The Bulls are simply the better all-around offense.
✅ The Dallas Mavericks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.
✅ The Dallas Mavericks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.

Mavericks vs Bulls Predictions
The Bulls vs Mavericks have faced off just over 75 times with it being relatively even to this point. The Mavericks hold a slight advantage, but just barely. Neither of these teams have a distinct advantage over the other.
With all of that said, the Bulls went 16-3 against the Mavericks in the 1990s. They’ve since won every decade decidedly, so I am not sure how close this matchup has really been. It had more to do with Michael Jordan being on the Bulls and now that he’s gone, they haven’t done much against the Mavericks.
The Mavericks vs Bulls predictions above take plenty into consideration, including injuries and recent performance. This is going to be a phenomenal game to watch, so make sure you’re on the right side of things betting-wise.

When betting against the spread, you must determine which team will win and by how many points. The spread refers to the number of points set on the favorite. This number can and will change as game time approaches.
For example, let’s say the Mavericks are 4.5-point favorites. In this example, a bet on the Mavericks would require them to win by five points or more. A bet on the Chicago Bulls would call for them either winning the game or losing by four or fewer points.

Betting the Bulls vs Mavericks over/under refers to betting whether or not the pair of teams will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. In this contest, it’s fair to expect plenty of points.
The Bulls happened to be one of the fastest teams in basketball, ranking third in the NBA with a 107.5 PACE. They get up and down the court as quickly as any team in the nation.
The Mavericks are on the other end of the spectrum at 24th, but have shown that they are willing to speed things up with their opponent. They might not have a choice against a Bulls team that is going to force run whether the Mavs want to or not.

Mavericks vs Bulls Moneyline Predictions
The moneyline is a popular and fun wager to make when betting NBA games. Betting the moneyline refers to picking the outright winner of a game and ignores the spread and over/under.
This takes the math and guessing games out of betting. However, sportsbooks still get their edge one way or another. They will charge you extra to bet a favorite and reward you with a + number to bet an underdog.
While the Mavericks have dominated recently, these are two lower-level teams and anyone can win this ballgame. The Mavericks vs Bulls moneyline predictions above are a great guideline as to how you should be betting this game.
Mavericks vs Bulls Odds
Odds in the NBA move as much as any sport and a lot of it has to do with late breaking news. Whether there are injuries or not, late news is always coming out in the NBA.
