The folks over at Bovada have released their most recent odds for the three main events at All-Star Weekend – the Three Point Contest, the Slam Dunk Contest and the actual All-Star Game itself and they were kind of enough to send those odds over.
This year’s Dunk Contest is a star studded event, featuring three All-Stars in Indiana Pacers’ swingman Paul George, Washington Wizards’ point guard John Wall and Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard, last year’s champion, Toronto Raptors’ wing Terrence Ross and a lottery pick from 2012, Golden State Warriors’ forward Harrison Barnes and 2013, Sacramento Kings’ guard Ben McLemore (who may attempt a 720).
George, who is widely considered the best player in this event because, well, he is, is an overwhelming favorite while Ross has 7/2 odds to defend his crown.
Every player involved is an excellent in game dunker so it will be interesting to see how things play out.
