The 2022 NBA All-Star Weekend has come and gone, with Team LeBron winning the game and the skills competitions in the books. Below, we have our betting breakdown for the 2022 dunk, 3-point and skills contests as well as the results.

Check back next season for our 2023 NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest, 3-Point Contest and Skills Challenge odds and picks.

NBA All-Star Weekend is back to its regularly scheduled programming this season after cramming all the events into one day last year.

The Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Slam Dunk Contest all take place on Saturday, February 19, this year, the night before the all-star game. The Rising Stars game will be held Friday, February 18. 

The NBA Slam Dunk Contest is always a treat for fans, and this year’s competition features four great young talents. Houston’s Jalen Green is the favorite at +130, followed by last year’s runner-up, New York’s Obi Toppin (+210), Orlando’s Cole Anthony (+350) and Golden State’s Juan Toscano-Anderson (+600).

As for the Three-Point Contest, it’s a who’s who of shooters in the 2022 edition with Fred VanVleet, Trae Young and Karl-Anthony Towns among those battling to see who has the sweetest stroke from behind the arc. VanVleet opened as the +400 fave in Three-Point Contest odds.

Finally, the Skills Challenge has a new format this season with three teams of three players shooting, passing and running through an obstacle course to determine the winner. An all-rookie team of Toronto’s Scottie Barnes, Detroit’s Cade Cunningham and Oklahoma City’s Josh Giddey is the favorite at -155. 

Let’s break down each event and how bettors should approach this basketball betting news. Check out our NBA All-Star game odds and NBA All-Star game MVP odds for more ways to get in on the NBA all-star action this weekend. 

NBA Slam Dunk Contest Betting Odds

Odds To Win 2022 NBA Slam Dunk Contest
Player Odds
Jalen Green +130
Obi Toppin +210
Cole Anthony +350
Juan Toscano-Anderson +600

Odds as of February 17 at BetOnline Sportsbook

Winner: Obi Toppin +210

In one of the sloppier dunk contests of all time, New York Knick and former Dayton Flyer Obi Toppin soared through the air to dunk contest victory.

Houston’s Jalen Green is a phenomenal young talent with incredible athleticism. The six-foot-four guard just turned 20 but has already shown off his length and hops by throwing down some huge dunks this season. There are also rumors that Green plans to incorporate NFTs into a dunk somehow, which could give him extra points for creativity.

The New York Knicks’ Obi Toppin can’t be overlooked after he finished as the runner-up in last season’s Slam Dunk Contest and Orlando’s Cole Anthony has the physical tools and personality to put on a show. But we like getting Green here with plus odds and think the favorite could have his coming-out party on Saturday night.

The Pick: Jalen Green +130

NBA 3-Point Contest Betting Odds

Odds To Win 2022 NBA 3-Point Contest
Player Odds
Fred VanVleet +400
Trae Young +425
Patty Mills +425
Luke Kennard +550
Desmond Bane +600
Zach LaVine +750
CJ McCollum +1000
Karl-Anthony Towns +1400

Odds as of February 17 at BetOnline Sportsbook

Winner: Karl-Anthony Towns +1400

If you had the big man to win the NBA’s 3-Point Contest, congratulations. Towns knocked off all the top NBA shooters to claim a rare 3-Point win for the center position.

It’s an interesting field of shooters for this season’s 3-Point Contest with no overwhelming favorite and attractive odds for everyone involved.

Only last year’s winner, Steph Curry, is hitting more three-pointers per game this season than this year’s favorite, Fred VanVleet. He’s a logical choice as an elite-level standstill shooter. We like him at +400, but there are other options with more attractive odds.

McCollum is interesting at +1000 as a veteran sharpshooter hitting .379 per cent from beyond the arc this season, but only two players in this year’s 3-Point Contest are ranked in the top 10 in three-point percentage this season.

Luke Kennard (.434, 4th) and Desmond Bane (.419, 10th) are both having great seasons shooting the long ball and are great bets in NBA 3-Point Contest odds. We lean toward Bane, who has longer odds and the swagger and confidence needed to rise to the occasion.

The Pick: Desmond Bane +600

NBA Skills Challenge Contest Odds

Odds To Win 2022 NBA Skills Challenge
Player Odds
Team Rookies (Barnes/Cunningham/Giddey) +200
Team Cavs (Garland/Allen/Mobley) +225
Team Antetokounmpo (Giannis/Alex/Thanasis) +400

Odds as of February 17 at BetOnline Sportsbook

Winner: Team Cavs +225

The hometown Team Cavs took home the win in the NBA Skills Challenge, beating out Team Rookies.

The 2022 NBA Skills Challenge has a bit of a different format than it did in past years. It was an individual event up until this season, but now we will see three teams of three players participate.

The favored team is an all-rookie unit made up of Toronto’s Scottie Barnes, Detroit’s Cade Cunningham and Oklahoma City’s Josh Giddey.

Next is a team made up of three players from the Cleveland Cavaliers: Darius Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen.

Lastly, Giannis Antetokounmpo will compete with two of his brothers, Alex and Thanasis. Thanasis plays for the Milwaukee Bucks as well while Alex is a member of the Raptors 905 in the G League. 

The format consists of a shooting round, a passing round and a team relay round with teams accumulating points during each event. The top two teams after the three rounds advance to a final round where the players will attempt to make a half-court shot one at a time.

The shooting round will have players trying to hit shots from different spots on the floor, the passing round will have players attempting to pass balls through moving targets and the relay round is essentially a passing/shooting obstacle course.

While this event is usually a total crapshoot, we think there’s a logical way to break down this year’s contest. The Cavs team consists of two bigs in Allen and Mobley, and while both are certainly talented, they simply aren’t as good as some other players in the competition as long-ball shooters or passers.

The Antetokounmpo brothers may have some chemistry, and we expect Giannis to play at his normal 110 percent speed, which helps, but likewise none of the three brothers are as good in the shooting or passing departments as others in this event.

That leaves the rookies, the only team with multiple guards and three gifted passers. While Barnes is not a guard, he has the versatility and handle to be able to dominate an event like this.

We’re going with the rookies at +200 in an event that rewards passing and shooting skills over height.

The Pick: Team Rookies +200
