The game is being held at Cowboys Stadium and as many as 90,000 fans are expected. NBA All-Star Game betting is likely to have the Western Conference a slight favorite only because the game is in Dallas.
NBA All-Star Game odds history had the largest crowd to see an NBA All-Star Game at 44,735. That was for the 1989 game at the Astrodome in Houston. The largest crowd to ever see an NBA regular season game was the 62,046 fans that watched Michael Jordan’s last regular season game with the Bulls at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta in 1998. The largest crowd to ever see a college game was the 78,129 fans at Detroit’s Ford Field in 2003.
NBA All-Star Game Odds are just one of the things to bet on this weekend. The Slam Dunk Contest will attract some attention on Saturday as will the Three-Point Shootout. Not to be forgotten in NBA All-Star Game betting is the Rookie Challenge on Friday.
Most of the people that look at the options for the weekend in NBA All-Star Game odds will look at the All-Star game on Sunday. Many times in recent years the Western Conference has been favored and the total has been quite high. That is likely again this year in NBA All-Star Game betting. Neither team is going to play any defense so a high scoring game is definitely going to happen. The question becomes how high? Let’s say that 260 points is a reasonable total. Which way should you bet? Let’s look at some past history. Going back to 2002 when Kobe Bryant was the MVP the West won 135-120 so the game had 255 points. The next year it was a scoring fest as the West won 155-145 for 300 points. Keep in mind though that was a double overtime game. In 2004 it was another high scoring game as the West won 136-132. The East won 125-115 in 2005 as the game went under the NBA All-Star Game odds. It also went under in 2006 as the East won 122-120. The 2007 game was a West rout as they won 153-132 so that game went over the NBA All-Star Game odds. Two years ago it was 134-128 for the East so that is right near the NBA All-Star Game betting total. Last year it was another game that was close to the total as the West rolled 146-119 in NBA All-Star Game odds.
