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.


2016 NBA All-Star Game Betting Preview

Kobe Bryant LeBron James All-Star

The brightest stars in the NBA will be on display Sunday night in Toronto when the Western Conference all-stars take on the all-stars from the East in what’s expected to follow the all-star game tradition of being a high scoring game.


Kobe Bryant Soars to Top of MVP Futures

Kobe Bryant NBA All-Star Game Los Angeles Lakers

With this being his last season in the NBA, Kobe Bryant has been saying “good bye” at various NBA arenas throughout the first “half” of the campaign. Sunday evening in Toronto marks Kobe’s final All-Star game and he has shot up the futures board to snag the game’s MVP award.

Odds at online shop Bovada were posted Thursday and Kobe was being offered at +700. Cut to Friday morning and the Lakers legend has moved all the way to the +135 favorite.


Pelicans-Thunder Trending OVER

Anthony Davis Kevin Durant

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the hottest teams in the NBA and can cap off a pre-All-Star break run that will give them 16 wins in 19 games if they can topple the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday. Both squads are trending OVER in this one, as the Pels have gone OVER in 11 of their past 14 games while the Thunder are 7-2 OVER/UNDER in their previous nine.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 3-1 ATS in their last four games when favored by 11.5 points or more.
  • The Pelicans are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games with no days off between games.
  • The Pelicans are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Thunder.

The Pelicans have played historically poor against the Thunder in recent matchups, dropping 16 of their last 21 contests with their Western Conference foes. Every game is going to be important from now on for New Orleans due to its ferocious playoff chase with the Utah Jazz for the eighth and final playoff spot. The Pels are coming off back-to-back wins over Minnesota and Utah to improve its positioning heading into the All-Star break.

Thunder superstar forward Kevin Durant is unsurprisingly red-hot, entering tonight’s game by scoring 20 or more points in 38 consecutive tilts. KD is averaging 36.3 points over his last three games.

Wizards are Hammering Bucks Recently

John Wall Greg Monroe

The Washington Wizards have played a lot of forgettable basketball in the first half of the NBA campaign but will be looking to enter the All-Star break on a winning note by picking up a victory against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. The Wiz have traditionally enjoyed plenty of success against the Bucks, claiming seven of their last eight against the Eastern Conference cellar dwellers.

Shark Bites
  • The Wizards are 0-4 SU in their last four games after a win.
  • The Bucks are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games after consecutive ATS wins.
  • The Wizards are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games when underdog of 1.5 or less.

The Wizards have also triumphed in their first three matchups with the Bucks this season. Milwaukee has been significantly better at home, going a solid 14-8 SU at BMO Harris Bradley Center compared to an ugly 7-24 SU mark on the road.

OVER bettors love seeing the Wiz on the road, and for good reason. In Washington’s last 15 games away from D.C., the OVER has cashed 12 times. The OVER is also 5-0 in Milwaukee’s last five at home.
