The Dallas Mavericks take a trip to the second city this Wednesday evening, November 28 for a betting matchup against the Chicago Bulls that will take place at the United Center, with tip off scheduled for 8:05 PM EST.
The Oddsmakers like the home team in this matchup, as they have listed the Bulls as a -6 point favorite in this contest, while posting the over/under total at 191 1/2 points.
The Mavericks have lost two straight games and now own a 7-8 overall record after 15 games played this season. They are playing worse against the spread, with a 6-9 record overall and 3-4 when playing on the road. They have been an underdog a total of eight times this season and have covered and lost four each.
Meanwhile, the Bulls are also under the .500 mark with a 6-7 straight up record. However, they are really bad against the spread with just three point spread covers on the young season. Even worse, they have yet to cover a game at home, with a terrible 0-7 ATS record in seven games played at the United Center this season.
The Mavericks are a weak 18-42-1 in their last 61 games played against teams in the Central Division. To say they have had very little success would be an understatement.
Five of their last six games played on a Wednesday have gone over the posted total.
The Bulls are only 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games played against teams in the Western Conference and just 2-9 in their last 11 overall.
Seven of their last nine games have stayed under the posted total versus teams in the Western Conference.
Tonight I expect the Bulls to put forth a solid effort in front of their hometown fans en route to their first ATS win this season at the United Center.
