NBA All-Star Betting: All-Star MVP Odds

LeBron James and Kevin Durant will be the marquee names at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, but it's the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry that sits as the betting favorite at sportsbook Bovada to win the MVP award.

At Bovada Curry sits as the 4/1 favorite on the odds to win the 2015 NBA All-Star Game MVP award, with James at 5/1 and Durant at 11/2. James won the NBA All-Star Game MVP award in both 2006 and 2008, while Durant claimed the honour to pay off on the betting props back in 2012.

A festival of stars gather in New Orleans this weekend for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game, and the various activities that accompany it.

And of course, since it's always more fun to watch the All-Star Game (Sunday, 8 pm ET) with a little something on the line, here's a look at the betting options on the All-Star MVP betting board.

Not surprisingly, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant and Miami's LeBron James lead the All-Star MVP betting at odds of 3/1 and 7/2 at Bovada, respectively. Durant, the three-time league scoring champ, leads the league in scoring this season at 31 points per game.

James, meanwhile, has already been named the All-Star MVP twice, back in 2006 and '08 when he was with Cleveland. Durant won it two years ago. 

Host-town favorite Anthony Davis comes next, at odds of 17/2. The former Kentucky Wildcat, who's averaging 21 points, 10 boards, and three blocks per game so far this season, will try to become the third player in the last six years to win the All-Star MVP award on his home court.

Kobe Bryant won it at Staples Center three years ago, and Shaquille O'Neal, as a Sun, shared the award with Kobe five years ago in Phoenix.

New York's Carmelo Anthony, who just recently set new Knicks and Madison Square Garden records by pouring in 62 points against the Bobcats, follows at odds of 10/1, according to Bovada.

Golden State sharpshooter Stephen Curry, who's also hitting the stats sheet to the tune of nine assists per night, is the next choice on the All-Star MVP board at 11/1.

Indiana's Paul George and the Clippers' Blake Griffin are both getting 12/1 to win the All-Star MVP award.

Minnesota numbers machine Kevin Love is lined at 14/1; Cleveland's Kyrie Irving comes next at 16/1; defending All-Star MVP Chris Paul is getting 18/1; and Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge, who's going off for 24 and 12 on a nightly basis, can be wagered on at 20/1.
