NBA 2013 All Star Betting Tips – NBA All-Star Weekend Offers Excellent Value

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/13/2013 6:00:16 PM

The NBA All-Star weekend is right around the corner, and there is a lot more than just the actual game for sports betting fans to look forward to wagering on. The range of betting options for the All-Star weekend include everything from the Slam Dunk contest to the three-point shooting contest, and then of course the actual game with props bets for both teams. While most bookies consider the All-Star weekend a toss up and feel that money will go in on both sides of every wager, true NBA fans are licking their lips at the opportunity to get in on the action and score some good value.

One of the most exciting online betting events of the weekend is the Slam Dunk contest, which will feature Eric Bledsoe, Kenneth Faried, Terrance Ross, Gerald Green, James White, and Jeremy Evans. While all six of these entrants have the hops to put on an absolute show, there will be excellent sleeper value in Ross of the Toronto Raptors. Unlike Bledsoe and Faried, Ross still really isn’t a big name south of the border, but fans in Canada have watched the young star put on a show all year and there is no doubt he has the potential to surprise. Judging by the highlight reel Ross has every right to be in this competition, and he could be an excellent sleeper pick for those that aren’t as familier with what he is capable of doing.

The three-point contest may not seem as exciting to bet on at first glance, but when it comes to the actual event it is an absolute thrill. Unlike the Slam Dunk contest there is no bias that goes in to this event, as the winner is crowned simply by making the most baskets. Stephen Curry, Matt Bonner, and Ryan Anderson will represent the Western Conference in this contest while Paul George, Kyrie Irving, and Steve Novak will represent the Eastern Conference. Irving and Curry are the two young stars that will get the most attention, but in this case be sure not to overlook either Bonner or Novak, who each has something to prove.

As for the actual All-Star game, the online sportsbook bookies realize how difficult this event is to break down and how close it is. While most see it as a toss up, look to take the Eastern Conference with Lebron James leading the show. James is known for his incredible skill and talent, but it’s his drive that separates him from the rest. Lebron will approach this game like he does any other, and don’t be surprised if it comes down to him and Kevin Durant as the two favorites to win the game’s MVP award. From the Slam Dunk contest to the three-point competition to the game itself, the NBA All-Star weekend is the perfect chance to take advantage of some sleeper picks and win some money, just don’t overlook the details that most players are so quick to write off.
