Chicago Bulls Preview

The Bulls had a somewhat respectable defeat against the Dallas Mavericks 114-105. However, it is still a loss no matter how bad it is.

The Bulls are currently third in the Central Division despite their losing record. They have a long way to go, but this would be a tremendous win for them against the NBA Champions.

They are averaging 105.4 points per game and 112.8 from their opponents. This ranks 25th and 17th in the league, respectively, but they must win to improve from here.

The Bulls offensive tendencies need to be addressed. They have an offensive rating of 106.2 that ranks 24th in the league. They also allow their opponents to have a defensive rating of 113.6 and it ranks 21st in the league.

Denver Nuggets Betting Preview

The Nuggets were able to rebound from their first loss of the year with a victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Against the Mavs, they finished off the game with a 125-114 result and Nikola Jokic had 33 points.

Their rise in success now has them sitting at first in the Northwest Division. With their current momentum, they will be tough to beat at home especially since they have not lost there yet.

They have been great on both sides of the court, starting with averaging 110.8 points a game and ranking 18th in the league. They give up just 103.6 points per game, which has them at third in therapies for that regard.

The Nuggets efficiency on offense stands at a rating of 112.2 (12th best). On defense, they are pretty precise with a 104.9 rating that ranks them fourth in the league. Being able to do it on both ends of the floor make a huge difference.
