We have reached the de facto halfway mark of the 2021-22 NBA season. With the trade deadline passing and players switching places, All-Star Weekend is a spectacle in itself. Ahead of the festivities in Cleveland, we break down the 2022 All-Star Game odds and offer picks for the fun competitions. These include Slam Dunk, 3-Point Contest, and All-Star Game MVP.

There is no bet from me on the game itself; more on that later. Enjoy the weekend, Cleveland!

NBA All-Star Weekend is a light-hearted and fun event. It is not overly competitive, and players tend not to take it seriously.

This is why, more than ever, I prefer to relay words of advice from Furio of The Sopranos  …. Bet with your head, not over it.”

Team Durant +6 | +210 ML | O/U 319.5 vs.
Team LeBron -6 | -255 ML | O/U 319.5

There is no hefty lean here for the All-Star Game. To say any picks are sharp is foolhardy, considering the lax attitudes for the game, although things may get competitive in the fourth quarter. Until then, just enjoy the impressive display of talent, trick shots, and dunks.

2022 All-Star Game MVP Odds And Picks

Below are odds for the NBA All-Star Game MVP. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, Giannis Antetokounmpo is the favorite to win the award at +380.

Chris Paul +3400Khris Middleton +9500
Fred VanVleet +3400Dejounte Murray +9500
James Harden N/AKarl-Anthony Towns +9500

Personally, I would bet three or four guys with one unit spread out among them:

NBA All-Star Game MVP Picks: Luka Doncic +1400, Devin Booker +2300, LaMelo Ball +2300, Donovan Mitchell +3400.

There is no bet from me on the All-Star Game at this time. Team LeBron has the more impressive roster, and Team Durant is expected to be missing its captain. As a massive favorite, LeBron’s squad is set up to win. However, laying juice on the All-Star Game is poor judgment. The players hardly care about this game, so why bet your money on the outcome?

2022 NBA 3-Point Contest Odds And Picks

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, here are odds for the 2022 NBA 3-Point Contest:

  • Patty Mills +450
  • Luke Kennard +500
  • Fred VanVleet +500
  • Trae Young +550
  • Zach LaVine +550
  • Desmond Bane +600
  • CJ McCollum +750
  • Karl-Anthony Towns +1100

For this contest, we want players who are great at shooting off the dribble and have a quick release. These contestants are not being thrown the ball; it is not a catch-and-shoot competition. Trae Young is my pick here.

NBA 3-Point Contest 2022 Pick: Trae Young +550

2022 NBA Dunk Contest Odds

Odds Provided by DraftKings Sportsbook

  • Jalen Green +200
  • Obi Toppin +205
  • Cole Anthony +300
  • Juan Toscano-Anderson +340

2022 NBA Dunk Contest Pick: Jalen Green (+200) appears to have the most bounce and athleticism in this class. He is a rightful favorite and my pick to win the 2022 NBA Dunk Contest.
