IMPORTANT: These All-Star tips are optional and for a bit of fun only. We do not have the same level of confidence in the All-Star events that we have during the regular season. If you’re deadly serious about maximising profits this season, give this one a miss. If you don’t mind the risk and just want to have fun and make All-Star a little more interesting, have at it, as that is the sole purpose of today’s tips!
(3 single bets)
Skills Challenge: Julius Randle @ $4.50 (Sportsbet)
Randle has a great combination of speed, ball handling, passing and shooting ability – we think he will take this competition seriously and win it for the big men for a second year in a row (off the back of BAM taking it home last season).
3pt Contest: Steph Curry @ $2.20 (Sportsbet)
Curry is shooting 41% from deep on 12 attempts per game this season! He gets an insane amount of attention from opposition defenses, so the 3pt contest will be a welcomed sight. It’s crazy to think he’s only won the competition once, given he’s been in it 7 times. We think he’ll win it for a second time in Atlanta. –
Dunk Contest: Obi Toppin @ $3.00 (Sportsbet)
The dunk contest is all about narrative and Toppin comes in with a reputation of throwing down some ridiculous in-game dunks during his time in college with Dayton. He’s only received spot minutes from Thibs this season and will look to capitalise on this opportunity to show off his next level athleticism.
All-Star Game (1 multi & 1 single bet)
Multi: Line / Total double Team LeBron -3.5 & Over 307.5 total points @ $2.37 (Sportsbet)
The news of Embiid & Simmons being ruled out with COVID contact tracing hurts Team KD the most. Since the draft format was introduced, Team LeBron hasn’t lost – we aren’t overthinking this one, take LBJ’s squad to cover and ride with the over!
All-Star MVP: Steph Curry @ $8.50 (Sportsbet)
Picking the All-Star MVP is tough. We saw Kawhi get it done last year and Westbrook has won it in the past (off the bench). We believe team LeBron wins this, so we are taking a starter from that squad and going with fan favourite Steph Curry. He has the ability to entertain the masses, show off his ball handling, and blow a game wide open with his elite shooting.
