2016 NBA All-Star Weekend Odds

The biggest party of the pro hoops calendar is set to kick off in North America's fourth largest city when the annual NBA All-Star Game takes its show north of the border to Toronto this weekend. Arguably the best part of All-Star Weekend comes on Saturday when individual players are put to the test once the three-point contest, skills challenge and slam dunk contest take center stage. If you're looking for odds on the events, we've got you covered.

The crown jewel of All-Star Saturday night is undoubtedly the slam dunk contest, and it's no surprise to see who's topping the odds at Bovada. Last year's champion Zach LaVine is back again to defend his crown, and the Minnesota Timberwolves point guard is a hefty -250 favorite to do so.

The youngster proved he belonged last year, dazzling the Brooklyn crowd to an array of tough dunks which was by highlighted a between the legs windmill dunk while sporting Michael Jordan's no. 23 Toon Squad jersey from the beloved 1990s basketball flick Space Jam.

Considering LaVine's unrivalled athleticism and imagination, Will Barton (+400), Aaron Gordon (+450) and Andre Drummond (+800) will be hard pressed to steal the spotlight away from the 20-year-old high-flyer. But we've learned to expect the unexpected from the dunk contest, which means bettors looking for value could easily take a shot in the dark at one of the other participants in an event that so often boils down to a crapshoot.

Who's favored to make it rain?

As for three-point contest markets, it's the "Splash Brothers" that are drawing the most attention. Golden State's Stephen Curry (EVEN) and Klay Thompson (+290) are no strangers to finding success from downtown, as the Warriors are on pace to set the all-time record for most treys in a season.

While Curry snags most of the headlines, Thompson has firmly established himself as the Robin to Curry's Batman but both guards are more than up to the task of putting on a show from downtown. By sinking 27 of 34 attempts, Curry ran away with the title last year en route to defeating Kyrie Irving and Thompson in the final round.

That's not to say there aren't solid options elsewhere, however. Kyle Lowry is used to lighting it up from beyond the arc at the Air Canada Centre, and it would come as little shock if the Villanova product walks away with the crown with the support of his hometown fans fuelling him. Lowry (+700) and Los Angeles Clippers sharpshooter J.J. Reddick (+500) look like the two best choices in this one outside of Golden State's dynamic backcourt duo.

Don't sleep on Clarkson

The skills competition is where the night really gets interesting from a sports bettors' perspective. Isaiah Thomas (+200), C.J. McCollum (+400), Draymond Green (+450), Jordan Clarkson (+450) and DeMarcus Cousins (+1100) round out the top five at the shop, but there really is no significant way to handicap this one.

Patrick Beverly came out of nowhere to pull the upset in 2015 by topping flashier players like Thomas, John Wall, Jeff Teague and Jimmy Butler, but has had to pull out of the event due to a sprained left ankle. Perhaps like last season, someone else could come out of "nowhere" to pull an upset in this event. So why not L.A.'s Jordan Clarkson?

The Lakers' guard has decent enough odds to warrant a look and could be this year's Beverly. Considering the season the Lakers are having, this one event could be the spot for a young guy like Clarkson to really shine.

Get your popcorn ready, hoop heads. It's going to be a wild weekend in Toronto.

---ARCHIVED ARTICLES---------------------------------------------------------

Kevin Durant is on fire. The Oklahoma City forward leads the NBA in scoring at 31.2 points per game, and he scored at least 30 points in 12 straight games during a torrid January stretch. It’s pretty easy to see why oddsmakers have Durant posted as the favorite to be named MVP of the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans.

Durant, who was named the MVP in 2012, is listed at 3/1 to win it again this year at Bovada. Miami forward LeBron James is next on the list at 7/2. James has won two All-Star MVP awards in his career.

The two superstars squared off two weeks ago in Miami, with Durant going off for 33 points in a 112-95 Thunder win. James answered with 34 points of his own, mostly with Durant guarding him.

Hometown favorite, second-year forward Anthony Davis of the host New Orleans Pelicans, is listed at No. 3 on the Bovada All-Star Game MVP odds. Davis is listed at 17/2, followed by the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (10/1) and Golden State point guard Stephen Curry (11/1).

Curry also will be competing in the NBA Three-Point Shootout and is the favorite at 2/1. Golden State’s sharp-shooter leads the NBA with 167 three-pointers.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, who won the Three-Point Shootout in 2012, is next at 4/1, followed by Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo (5/1). Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, the defending champion, is listed at 11/2. Portland point guard Damian Lillard will be competing in both the Three-Point Shootout and the Dunk Contest; Lillard is 6/1 to win the Three-Point Contest and 5/1 to be voted the Dunker of the Night.

In the Dunk Contest, Indiana’s rising star Paul George is a big +115 favorite (23/20) over a star-studded group of players to be voted Dunker of the Night. Defending-champion Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors is next at 7/2, followed by Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (9/2), Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore (5/1), Lillard (5/1), and Golden State guard Harrison Barnes (17/2).

The NBA's top players will be on display this weekend as the league stages its 2013 All-Star Game in Houston, with the Western Conference looking to pay off against the Eastern Conference once again.

The West topped the East as a betting underdog on the NBA All-Star Game odds at sportsbooks like Bovada last season, winning 152-149 at Orlando's Amway Center behind MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant is back on the Western roster as a starter again for this year's game, which tips off at 8:00pm ET on Sunday night. He's joined by the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, and the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul in the starting lineup.

LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, James Harden, David Lee, Tony Parker, Zach Randolph, and Russell Westbrook round out the roster for the Western Conference, which will be coached by the San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich.

The Eastern Conference starting lineup includes the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony, the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, and the Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo - although Rondo is injured and won't be playing in the game.

Miami's Erik Spoelstra will coach the Eastern All-Stars this season, with Chris Bosh, Tyson Chandler, Luol Deng, Paul George, Jrue Holiday, Kyrie Irving, Brook Lopez, and Joakim Noah filling out the conference's roster for the game.

For the Slam-Dunk Contest this weekend, Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz is the defending champion but he's back at 8/1 on the Slam Dunk odds at Bovada to win the event again this year. James White of the New York Knicks is pegged as the 5/4 favorite.

And in the Three-Point Shootout, the Knicks' Steve Novak and the Warriors' Stephen Curry are both listed at 5/2 odds at Bovada, with Irving of the Cavaliers and Ryan Anderson of the Hornets next on the Three Point Contest odds at 4/1.
