NBA All Star game betting choices will begin on Friday, February 15th as the Rookie Challenge gets underway and conclude on Sunday, February 17th with the NBA All Star game. NBA All Star game betting choices are highlighted by the NBA All Star game on Sunday but that is not the only action. The Rookie Challenge continues to attract attention in NBA All Star game betting and that should continue in 2008 with the game getting attention on Friday. Saturday is full of NBA All Star game betting choices with the Slam Dunk contest and the Three Point Shootout. Both of these events will have NBA All Star game betting odds and provide exciting action.
Last year it was Gerald Green winning the Slam Dunk title and he will be back to defend his title against the previous year’s winner Dwight Howard along with Rudy Gay and Jamario Moon. The Three Point Shootout should be exciting and present great NBA All Star game betting options as defending champ Jason Kapono competes against five other players including Kobe Bryant. Joining those two will be Daniel Gibson, Richard Hamilton, Steve Nash and Peja Stojakovic.
The highlight of NBA All Star game betting choices is the game itself on Sunday evening. New Orleans takes center stage as the best players in the world compete in the NBA All Star game. NBA All Star game betting will have the Western Conference as the favorite with a total in the mid 250’s. The public has usually preferred to bet the West and the over in past NBA All Star game betting and that may be the case again this year. The West has the more talented NBA All Star game roster and the East is also missing one of their best players, Kevin Garnett who is injured. The West is led by Kobe Bryant while the East is led by LeBron James. Last year the Western Conference won a shootout 153-132 in the NBA All Star game as Kobe Bryant scored 31 points as the West and the over came through for NBA All Star betting gamblers.
