NBA All-Star Game MVP Best Bet

LeBron James (+450) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Each of the last five All-Star Game MVPs have played for Team LeBron. That includes James himself, who won the prize in 2018 behind a 29-point double-double.

It’s been a record-setting year for James, who recently took over the No. 1 spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, and he can achieve another feat by earning his fourth All-Star Game MVP. A win would tie him for first place with Kobe Bryant and Bob Pettit.

Look for James to get the job done and make this your NBA bet of the day.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Favorites

Giannis Antetokounmpo (+500) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

If a player on Team Giannis brings home the MVP, it’ll likely be Antetokounmpo himself, who most recently won the award in 2021 by scoring a game-high 35 points.

The Greek Freak does a little bit of everything on the court, and with how little effort is given on the defensive end of the floor in this game, he likely won’t meet much resistance when he gets into the paint or attempts to score at the rim.

Damian Lillard (+700) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Betting on players not named James or Antetokounmpo in this contest is a bit tricky, as we don’t yet know which team they’ll be suiting up for. Nonetheless, Lillard’s skills will be on display regardless of which side he’s on, as there are few others in the league capable of scoring like he can.

Lillard’s unlimited range is always on display in the All-Star Game, and if he’s hitting, you can bet that his teammates will feed him. Should he end up leading the way in scoring for the winning team, he’ll earn his first All-Star MVP.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Contenders

Joel Embiid (+700) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

After scoring a league-best 30.6 points per game in 2021-22, Embiid has followed up his historic season by one-upping himself and averaging 33.1 points through the first half of the season. And if he’s doing that in regular NBA games, there’s no reason why he can’t go off for 40-plus this Sunday.

Expect Embiid to attack the paint and put up a ton of points in the process.

Luka Dončić (+800) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Dončić is the current leader in points per game at 33.3, but that’s not all the 23-year-old phenom can do. The Mavs superstar has recorded 27 double-doubles and 10 triple-doubles on the season, including a record-breaking 60-point triple-double in late December.

A stat-stuffer extraordinaire, Dončić is as good a choice as any to be named All-Star MVP.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Sleepers

Donovan Mitchell (+1400) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Playing in front of your former home crowd is always energizing, and that’s what Mitchell will get the opportunity to do Sunday night. The 26-year-old spent his first five seasons in the NBA with the Jazz before he was traded to the Cavaliers this past summer.

Mitchell also holds the record for most points scored in a game this season with 71, and if he can get going early on in this one, it could be a long night for the opposing team.

Lauri Markkanen (+2000) at BetRivers Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

This is, admittedly, an unlikely scenario. Markkanen has had a phenomenal season, and he’s been named an NBA All-Star starter as a result.

But compared to the other starters in this event, it’s not a stretch to say that he’s the odd man out.

However, he’s also the only member of the Jazz taking part in the All-Star Game, which is important to note since Salt Lake City is hosting this year’s event. With the home crowd behind him, Markkanen could easily get hot — especially from deep — and end up being the reason why his team wins.
