NBA All Star Weekend Betting All About Prop Bets
As with almost all professional sports, when a big event comes around, sports books jump on the chance to make a quick buck on the event. Starting today, that means the NBA All Star Weekend.
The best players in the world will gather in Phoenix beginning tonight. Not only will the current superstars be on hand, but also legendary players from the past. They come together for a festive weekend that will culminate in the playing of the actual game itself.
Before then, however, is where sports books will be making their money. Saturday night will be filled with oohs and aahs when the players take the court to display their skills. Some will be in the dunk contest, others will be showing off their precise shooting ability.
Whatever the skill is, odds makers will have bets available for gamblers. Already there are odds on who will win these specialty events. Dwight Howard is the favorite in the dunk contest, but there are several players with longer odds that could pull the upset.
Tonight will be the celebrity game. In past years cross sport athletes such as Terrell Owens have succeeded in this game. It is common for Hollywood entertainers to also participate. Where there are star athletes and entertainers, there surely are odds makers.
The big draw of course is the game on Sunday that features Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. It will not only be about those two, however. Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, Tim Duncan, and Chris Paul will also be in action.
