Now that New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has a bum knee heading into NBA All-Star weekend meaning he, along with Chicago-style ballot-box stuffing prop Jeremy Lin, have pulled out of the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Competition, the playing field has leveled for Indiana Pacers guard Paul George.
So it is no surprise that the oddsmakers at Bovada have updated their odds to win the Slam Dunk title and now have Paul George emerging as the favorite at 3 to 2 odds. Utah Jazz forward Jeremy Evans will replace Shumpert and give PG a run for his money by bringing a similar dunking game to the contest.
Here are the updated odds for the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Competition.
|Paul George (IND)||3/2|
|Jeremey Evans (UTA)||11/4|
|Derrick Williams (MIN)||3/1|
|Chase Buddinger (HOU)||4/1|
Bovada also has all of the odds for the other All-Star events including MVP odds for the All-Star game and Rising Stars game. Roy Hibbert is a big long shot for the big game MVP while Paul George isn't given much of a chance for the Rising Stars game which may be worth a closer look for some quick cash.
