The additions of Lonzo Bal and DeMar DeRozan helped Chicago out to a 7-3 start and have set up a must-see game on Wednesday night. Here is a look at how to watch, the odds, and more.

Dallas Mavericks at Chicago Bulls prediction
The Mavs are still searching for their first signature win of the 2021-2022 season. Yes, Luka Doncic hit a game-winning buzzer-beater against the Celtics, but Boston is struggling out of the game. Going to Chicago and knocking off the 7-3 Bulls would do just that.
Dallas is going to struggle to stop DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine on Wednesday night. Both players are averaging over 26 points per game, so expect plenty of points at the United Center.
Luka Doncic is going to have a breakout game in Chicago. Expect the 22-year-old superstar to go off for a 35-point triple-double as Dallas pulls the upset on Nov. 10. They score more than 105 points, and the game goes over 212.
Dallas Mavericks fans will not want to miss this contest, so please tune in and enjoy the game.
