Friday Betting Lineup (9 p.m. ET): Panini Rising Stars

This features a three-game mini-tournament among four teams comprised of NBA rookies, sophomores, and G League players.

All three games will be played to a final target score, meaning each will end on a made basket or free throw rather than expiring time. The semifinals will be played to a final target score of 40 points.

The final game, featuring the winners of the semifinal games, goes to 25 points.

This type of wager, where available, will appeal to bettors who know the league’s younger players and have a hunch about who might be ready to step up.

It’s also a refreshing new format with a brisk succession of shorter games.

Starry Three-Point Contest

Different color balls and point values provide the wild card effect gamblers love. This is something bettors can handicap because some shots have different point values.

Here are some key rules:

Five ball racks are placed at different shooting locations around the three-point arc. Four racks contain one multi-colored “money” ball and four NBA balls.

The NBA balls are worth one point. The “money” ball is worth two. It can only be launched after the four NBA balls are shot.

Then, there is a fifth rack. It’s a special “all-money ball.” Every ball is worth two points. Each competitor decides the spot for this rack, providing some strategy. When does a player think he will get hot enough to maximize the two-point shots?

A pair of white balls worth three points are shot from a deep-shot location. Two ball pedestals are positioned at “Starry Range” (two deep shot locations between Racks 2 and 3 and the other between Racks 3 and 4).

Each ball pedestal holds one white “Starry” ball. Shots made with the white ball are worth three points.

For the two additional deep shots, the player must begin their shooting motions with at least one foot in “Starry Range,” designated by a floor decal.

Each competitor has 70 seconds (1:10) to shoot as many of the 27 balls as he can.

There are numerous betting categories. They include individual totals, alternate totals, and one for momentum lovers, Best Streak. If your player gets hot, you get paid. It applies to Round 1 and makes every shot important.

Here are the betting odds at DraftKings for these categories:

Participants

  • Damian Lillard (+475)
  • Tyrese Haliburton (+550)
  • Trae Young (+600)
  • Malik Beasley (+600)
  • Karl-Anthony Towns (+600)
  • Jalen Brunson (+600)
  • Lauri Markkanen (+650)
  • Donovan Mitchell (+700)

Best Streak (Longest String of Shots Made in Round 1)

  • Lillard (+300)
  • Haliburton (+350)
  • Young (+550)
  • Beasley (+550)
  • Towns (+550)
  • Brunson (+550)
  • Markkanen (+700)
  • Mitchell (+1000)

New this year is the Stephen Curry vs. Sabrina Ionescu Three-Point Challenge.

NBA all-time three-point leader and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and WNBA single-season three-point record holder and New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu will compete in “Stephen vs. Sabrina,” the first-ever NBA vs. WNBA Three-Point Challenge.

You would figure Curry to be the big chalk, and you’d be right. He’s -220, while Ionescu is +160. However, these odds have been reduced, meaning Ionescu has gotten some late betting love.

AT&T Slam Dunk

There are five judges. For each dunk, a score from 40 to 50 will be awarded.

Participants

  • Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics)
  • Jaime Jaquez Jr. (Miami Heat)
  • Mac McClung (Osceola Magic)
  • Jacob Toppin (New York Knicks)

Style means as much as substance, maybe more.

McClung won last year with an artistic presentation. One person sat on the shoulders of another under the basket, holding the ball behind his head.

McClung ran up, snatched the ball, and performed a beautiful overhead dunk. He got all 50s, the crowd went nuts, and he won.

Sunday Betting Lineup (8 p.m. ET): 73rd NBA All-Star Game

 

The West is with a moneyline price of . The East at has a strong moneyline value of .

The Over/Under may shock bettors at first glance. It’s . That’s right, not 262.5. The game is such an offensive showcase that baskets will fly like airplanes from a busy airport.

In 2023, Team Giannis toppled Team LeBron, 184-175. Jayson Tatum was the MVP, and the game was a scoring lover’s delight, with 99 points scored in the second quarter and 108 in the third.

That’s 207 points for two quarters. Some entire NBA games fall under that total.

The one-game record is 374. The West toppled the East 192-182 in 2017.
