Friday’s NBA All Star game betting odds have the Rookie Challenge while Saturday’s NBA All Star game betting odds have the Slam Dunk contest and the Three Point Shootout. NBA All Star game betting odds often have the most value on the additional contests. Last year it was Jason Kapono winning the Three Point shootout. He was not one of the NBA All Star game betting odds favorites either. Kapono will attempt to become the first back-to-back winner since Peja Stojakovic won in 2002 and 2003. Stojakovic will return to the contest for the first time since 2004. NBA All Star game betting odds show that Stojakovic and Kapono will be joined by the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Cleveland’s Daniel Gibson, Detroit’s Richard Hamilton and the Suns’ Steve Nash.
NBA All Star game betting odds will show that the Slam Dunk contest will take place Saturday night, February 16th. Gerald Green will try and defend his title against three other competitors. Two of those entrants are new on the NBA All Star game betting odds board. Memphis’ Rudy Gay and Toronto’s Jamario Moon will compete for the first time. Orlando’s Dwight Howard will compete for the second time as part of NBA All Star game weekend. He won in 2006 and many people believe he should have won last year. NBA All Star game betting odds should have Howard and Moon as the favorites with Green and Gay as the next choices. Fans will actually have a say in deciding the winner as their votes will count in the finals. NBA All Star game betting odds show that Golden State’s Jason Richardson was the last player to win back-to-back titles. As you consider NBA All Star game betting odds for the Slam Dunk contest remember that the two dunkers with the best scores advance to the finals and then those two compete against each other. TNT will be providing television coverage of all the 2008 NBA All Star game festivities beginning on Friday, February 15th. Take a look at all of the great betting options you have for the 2008 NBA All Star game and enjoy the action.
