NBA Slam Dunk Contest Odds

The biggest stars in the NBA are heading to Utah for the All-Star festivities this weekend. The odds are out for all of the All-Star Saturday Night events so let’s take a look at where things currently stand at FanDuel Sportsbook, starting with the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.

NBA Slam Dunk Contest Odds

  • Mac McClung +160
  • Jericho Sims +270
  • Kenyon Martin Jr +280
  • Trey Murphy III +370

Despite being the clear star of the individual events, the NBA Slam Dunk Contest is once again short on household names. Mac McClung just signed a two-way contract with the 76ers after starring in the G-League. McClung was a viral sensation in high school for his dunking ability. Sims, the Knicks second year forward out of Texas, has been known to throw down some monster dunks in games. Martin and Murphy are third and fourth in the odds just about everywhere you look.

NBA Three Point Contest Odds

  • Buddy Hield +420
  • Damian Lillard +470
  • Jayson Tatum +550
  • Kevin Huerter +600
  • Lauri Markkanen +650
  • Tyrese Haliburton +650
  • Tyler Herro +800
  • Julius Randle +950

You could argue the Three Point Contest has passed the Slam Dunk Contest in star power in recent years. Buddy Hield is the favorite. Hield is eighth in the league in three point field goal percentage and is the only returning champion in the field, having won it in 2019. Additionally, Damian Lillard is an electrifying shooter and Jayson Tatum is an MVP candidate so they rank second and third. Lauri Markkanen will compete in front of the home fans and is fifth in the odds, tied with Indiana’s Tyrese Haliburton. Julius Randle is the long shot as an injury replacement for Anfernee Simons.

Rising Stars Tournament Odds

  • Pau’s Team +170
  • Deron’s Team +175
  • Joakim’s Team +340
  • Jason’s Team +500

For the second year in a row, the Rising Stars Tournament will be a three game contest with the semifinal games playing to a target score of 40 and the championship game will be played to a target score of 25. Paul Gasol, Deron Williams and Joakim Noah all drafted teams of NBA players and Jason Terry is coaching a team of G-Leaguers which is why his team has the longest odds.. You can see the full rosters of each team here. Most notably, the G-League team will feature Scoot Henderson, the presumptive number two pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.
