NBA All-Star Weekend specials from the bookmaker Betfair
One of the biggest events in the whole basketball world will take place this upcoming weekend. The perfect mix of sport and entertainment - NBA All-Star Weekend. Check out what one of the top online bookmakers has to offer specifically for this occasion.
The NBA All-Star Weekend is finally here. Who will win a 3-point contest? Who is going to be a slam dunk champion, and will show the biggest skillset to win the skill challenge this year? Seems like oddsmakers from Betfair already know all these answers.
This one of the top online bookies currently has three opened All-Star weekend markets. Let’s start off with the skill challenge. This year’s event will feature such known names like Pascal Siakam, Jayson Tatum, Patrick Beverley and Khris Middleton.
Despite all the skillset these guys have, the book gives the best chances to Spencer Dinwiddie (Brooklyn Nets). Betfair prices the point guard at 4.50 (7/2). Last year’s winner - Jayson Tatum is only given the odds of 6.50 (11/2) this time. As for the bigs, Siakam, Adebayo and Sabonis are given the odds of 6.50 (11/2), 12.00 (11/1) & 9.00 (8/1), respectively.
Let’s move on to the two the most interesting market, which is a slam dunk and a 3-point contest.
This year’s Slam Dunk features quite a screw. The «Superman» himself - the 2008 Slam Dunk Champions - Dwight Howard, the high-flying Derrick Jones Jr., the 2016 Slam Dunk finalist - Aaron Gordon and the powerful dunker - Pat Connaughton. This has the potential to be quite an exciting scene to watch. Betfair, however, favours Gordon while leaving Howard as a 6.50 (11/2) underdog.
The last but definitely not least is the Three-Point Contest. Just like the Slam Dunk, 3-point contest has quite a crew as well. You can see the last year’s champion - Joe Harris, sharpshooters like Trae Young and Damian Lillard, as well as the former two-time Slam Dunk Champion - Zach LaVine. Can Harris defend his title this year? Or is there any value behind Young & Lillard? Let us know down in the comments below.
