NBA All-Star Game MVP Odds 2024

Last Updated: Feb 16, 2024

The league’s best and brightest will be on display at the 73rd NBA All-Star Game this Sunday, Feb. 18, at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

It’s one thing to be named an All-Star, but being recognized as All-Star MVP is an even more prestigious honor that 24 players will be vying for this weekend.

Check out the latest odds and my best bets to win the award below.

NBA odds for the 2024 NBA All-Star Game MVP are current as of Friday, Feb. 16, at noon ET.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Odds

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (+600)
  • LeBron James (+700)
  • Jayson Tatum (+800)
  • Stephen Curry (+800)
  • Anthony Edwards (+1000)
  • Damian Lillard (+1000)
  • Kevin Durant (+1000)
  • Tyrese Haliburton (+1000)
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (+1200)
  • Devin Booker (+1400)
  • Luka Dončić (+1500)

All other NBA All-Star Game MVP candidates have (+2100) odds or longer to win the award.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Best Bet

Damian Lillard (+1000)

bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

This will be Lillard’s eighth All-Star appearance, yet surprisingly, the sharpshooting superstar has yet to earn his first All-Star MVP trophy. Despite the (+1000) odds implying otherwise, he’s got a great chance to win it this year.

Lillard is one of the few players who seems to give All-Star Games his all, which can’t be said about Luka Dončić (+1500) or Nikola Jokić (+5000), who have a much better chance of winning NBA MVP.

What helps set Dame apart from the crowd is his three-point shooting. He took 20 three-pointers in 23 minutes in last year’s game, and after being named an All-Star starter for the first time, he could put up even more this time around.

Back Lillard with your NBA bet of the day.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Favorites

Giannis Antetokounmpo (+600)

bet365 Sportsbook

Antetokounmpo was recognized as the All-Star Game MVP in 2021 after going a perfect 16-for-16 from the field and scoring 35 points in just 19 minutes of action. As someone who almost exclusively takes high-percentage shots, he can take advantage of the lack of defense and shine in this event.

With that said, Antetokounmpo isn’t a great value at (+600). It’s generally expected that the All-Star Game MVP will go to the most outstanding player on the winning team, so it’s surprising to see Antetokounmpo as the odds-on favorite since the West All-Stars are favored to come out on top.

LeBron James (+700)

bet365 Sportsbook

James leads all Western Conference All-Stars at (+700), but his most recent All-Star Game performances tell us that this prop should be avoided. The 39-year-old has scored 13, 24, and four points in his last three appearances, and he played just 14 minutes in last year’s game.

Perhaps James will want to prove something by becoming the league’s oldest All-Star Game MVP — Shaquille O’Neal holds the current record at age 36 — but it seems more likely that he’ll want to earn some valuable rest rather than an award he’s already won three times.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Contenders

Tyrese Haliburton (+1000)

bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

This is shaping up to be a golden opportunity for Haliburton, who will start for the Eastern Conference All-Stars in front of his home crowd. The Pacers star has thrived in big moments all season, and it would be on-brand for him to compete for the All-Star MVP award.

Magic Johnson holds the record for most assists in an All-Star Game with 22, but I wouldn’t put it past Haliburton to record the first 20-point, 20-assist performance in the event’s history.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (+1200)

bet365 Sportsbook

Gilgeous-Alexander can do it all, but he didn’t get much of a chance to prove that in the 2023 All-Star Game — SGA logged nine points and seven assists in just 10 minutes of action.

As a starter in this year’s event, Gilgeous-Alexander should get more of an opportunity to put his skills on display. He’s not a high-volume three-point shooter, which could hurt his candidacy, but he could easily be the go-to scorer for the West All-Stars.

NBA All-Star Game MVP Sleepers

Donovan Mitchell (+2100)

bet365 Sportsbook

Mitchell scored 40 points in the 2023 All-Star Game and likely would have won MVP had Jayson Tatum not erupted for 55. Mitchell was likely fueled by the fact that the game was played in Salt Lake City, where he spent the first five years of his career before a trade sent him to Cleveland.

The high-scoring guard won’t have that same motivation in Indianapolis, and he’s also not a starter this time, which will limit his potential output. However, at (+2100), I could see the appeal of placing a small wager on Mitchell.

Paul George (+3500)

bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.25 Units

If any bench player will have the motivation to go out and win All-Star Game MVP, it’s George. The 33-year-old spent the first seven years of his career in Indiana, and he still isn’t particularly well-received by the home crowd.

George has averaged 36 points per game in his last three trips to Indianapolis. If he can channel that same energy for the All-Star Game, he could have an outside shot at winning the award.
