Sanders has a deficit that won't be made up. All of the Democratic delegates are awarded proportionally. He has to win a lot and win by a lot to overcome her lead.
Cruz is looking for a contested convention, not an outright victory. Instead of looking for 50%+1 delegates, all he needs to do is keep Trump from getting to that point. He also has Kasich along to help. Cruz also has the help of the winner-takes-all layout of the GOP primaries/caucuses.
Sanders needs to be offensively powerful to win.
Cruz needs to be defensively powerful to keep Trump from winning.

No one will get 1237 in the GOP, and Trump is very unlikely to get the nomination in a contested convention.
The DNC on the other hand has it rigged. Bernie won't win the majority of the delegates, one because of super delegates (sham) and two because it's rigged for Hillary. It was supposed to be last time but Obama stole it.

Trumps momentum has been strong but dipping. Hillary's momentum has been spotty. Sanders enjoyed the benefits of caucus states and open primary states, but has an uphill battle with a bunch of big states, NY, PA, and CA..
