One of the fun props to bet on for the All-Star game is who will score the most points, and most books have them offered in an interesting manner this year, listing players to score 10+, 15+, 20+, 25+, 30+ and 40+ points.
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid leads the way for the odds to score 30+ and 40+ points, but with so much talent on the floor, it’s anyone’s game to lead in scoring.
It all depends on who ends up getting hot, such as Steph Curry last season when he won the MVP award.
Let’s dive into the odds and pick for this prop:
Odds to score the most points in the All-Star Game
Embiid has the shortest odds available to score 30 or more points on Sunday night, but I’m not sold on this list since both he and LeBron James are nursing foot injuries and may not play as much in this game.
Who will score the most points in the NBA All-Star Game?
Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard are two solid picks to lead the game in scoring, as both players can light it up from distance, and they have a penchant for getting hot over quick stretches.
Usually taking a starter is a good bet for this prop since they have more guaranteed roles, but there are a lot of questions with starters such as James and Giannis Antetokounmpo (wrist).
Irving is getting the start, so he could be a valuable bet, but I don’t mind leaning with Dame after he dominated in the 3-point contest on Saturday night.
