NBA All-Star Game 2020 Picks

The weekend is full of activities, with the rising stars game on Friday, the skills competition Saturday and the All-Star game on Sunday. NBA All-Star game odds are open for wagering on the weekend, which sees Team LeBron take on Team Giannis in a rematch of captains from last season.

Canadians can find the 2020 NBA All-Star Game odds to win the game below. Odds on the 2020 NBA All-Star Game have Team Giannis getting a slight edge over Team LeBron. Let’s see the NBA All-Star Game 2020 betting odds.

  • Team Giannis +180
  • Team LeBron -210

NBA All-Star Weekend Predictions

With the draft complete and the rosters set, fans and players are gearing up for another exciting edition of the NBA All-Star game. Team Giannis is getting a small edge on sportsbooks over Team LeBron.

Team LeBron won last year, and his approach in the draft this year netted him a very similar roster this year. However, that does not guarantee another victory.

Giannis is sure to up his intensity this year, after his squad folded last season, despite ending the first quarter up 16 points (eventually losing 178-164). Giannis’ roster this year is built around speed and size, which will help his team in the transition game. Shooting from the likes of Trae Young and Kemba Walker from the outside will help Giannis, as well as Embiid and Siakam, destroy in the paint.

LeBron’s team will have a hungry James Harden and Damian Lillard, who both will want to win the All-Star MVP. However, the two may be too ball-dominate, to work as effectively with LeBron, who will likely play as the team’s creator (or a point forward).

Take Team Giannis to avenge their loss from last year.

Pick: Team Giannis (+180) to Win the 2020 NBA All-Star Game

For the game MVP, we are going with the captain himself, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis will offer bettors 2020 NBA All-Star Game MVP odds near the top once they open, after his performance last year.

Giannis put up 38 points last year, leading the game. Giannis has improved since last year, and with even more skills and talent, Giannis will play even better in 2020.

Pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo (TBA) to Win NBA All-Star Game MVP

With the recent tragedy involving Kobe Bryant, the NBA has gone to many lengths to honour the legend. One of the steps is introducing a new scoring format at the All-Star game. The final quarter will see the two teams scores added up, then the two teams’ race to score the total of the leading team plus 24 to win the game.

The format is a bit confusing, and with each, the second and third quarters, resetting back to zero (as each team competes to win each quarter for their charities), betting on the 2020 NBA All-Star game over/under may be more of a headache then it is worth when online sportsbooks finally release odds on the game total.

Quick Picks for the Skills Competition

Aaron Gordon opens the dunk contest as the favourite, and there is little reason to bet against the former champion. Gordon’s combination of athleticism and creativity should help him win again.

Pick: Aaron Gordon (+105) to Win the 2020 NBA Dunk Contest

Buddy Hield, at +700, is offering good value to win the three-point contest. Hield is attempting ten three-pointers per game, and the two seasons, Hield has averaged almost 43% on three-pointers.

Pick: Buddy Hield (+700) to Win the 2020 Three-Point Contest
