As the NBA All-Star Weekend is set to kick off shortly, the folks at Bovada.lv are there to provide a number of All-Star related odds. From the Rising Stars Challenge to the NBA All-Star Game, there is no shortage of Pacers players to cheer on, making it an exciting weekend for Blue and Gold fans.

Myles Turner will take part in the Rising Stars Challenge, with 12/1 odds to win the Rising Stars MVP. Turner has the fourth shortest odds for a Team USA player (sixth shortest), but on a team with Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, and Devin Booker, it will be interesting to see how Turner’s game translates to an All-Star style setting and whether or not he’s the only player on the floor looking to make any sort of defensive plays.

Here are the full odds for the Rising Stars Challenge MVP:

Karl-Anthony Towns (USA) 2/1
Kristaps Porzingis (World) 7/2
D’Angelo Russell (USA) 7/1
Devin Booker (USA) 10/1
Nikola Jokic (World) 10/1
Myles Turner (USA) 12/1
Malcolm Brogdon (USA) 18/1
Buddy Hield (World) 20/1
Dario Saric (World) 20/1
Brandon Ingram (USA) 22/1
Trey Lyles (World) 25/1
Jamal Murray (World) 25/1
Jahlil Okafor (USA) 30/1
Willy Hernangomez (World) 33/1
Frank Kaminsky (USA) 35/1
Marquese Chriss (USA) 40/1
Alex Abrines (World) 45/1
Danté Exum (World) 45/1
Domantas Sabonis (World) 45/1
Jonathon Simmons (USA) 45/1

On Saturday, Glenn Robinson III will take the floor as part of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, but the son of The Big Dog will be the big underdog, given 9/1 odds of winning the dunk contest, the longest of any participant. Trailing defending champion Aaron Gordon is no surprise, but against virtual unknown Derrick Jones and power dunker DeAndre Jordon, it may be more of a slight, giving Robinson more fire to be the first Pacers player since Fred Jones to win the contest.

Aaron Gordon (ORL) 5/8
Derrick Jones Jr. (PHO) 5/4
DeAndre Jordan (LAC) 8/1
Glenn Robinson III (IND) 9/1

Paul George will join the All-Star Game for the fourth time in his career, coming off the bench after starting last season. Bovada isn’t expecting George to produce an encore of his 41-point performance from last year, placing him at 25/1 odds of winning the All-Star MVP.

No surprise, however, that even if he did have another big game (feel free to consider the over for the leading scorer in the All-Star Game scoring 35.5 points), it would likely come in a losing effort, effectively taking him and every other Eastern Conference player out of the running.

Bovada takes that into account, giving the five shortest odds to Western Conference players, led by Russell Westbrook at 7/2 odds. Westbrook may have the best case by simply not passing the ball to any Warriors player, assuming he shares the court with all four of their All-Stars, which Bovada places at 3/1 odds of happening.

Russell Westbrook (WEST) 7/2
Stephen Curry (WEST) 6/1
Anthony Davis (WEST) 13/2
Kevin Durant (WEST) 7/1
James Harden (WEST) 7/1
LeBron James (EAST) 7/1
Kyrie Irving (EAST) 15/2
Giannis Antetokounmpo (EAST) 11/1
Kawhi Leonard (WEST) 15/1
Isaiah Thomas (EAST) 15/1
Jimmy Butler (EAST) 22/1
Paul George (EAST) 25/1
DeMar DeRozan (EAST) 28/1
Carmelo Anthony (EAST) 45/1
Kyle Lowry (EAST) 45/1
Klay Thompson (WEST) 45/1
John Wall (EAST) 45/1
DeMarcus Cousins (WEST) 55/1
Draymond Green (WEST) 55/1
DeAndre Jordan (WEST) 65/1
Kemba Walker (EAST) 65/1
Gordon Hayward (WEST) 70/1
Marc Gasol (WEST) 80/1
Paul Millsap (EAST) 80/1

So not only for Pacers fans, but in general, there should be a lot of exciting things to look forward to for All-Star Weekend. Here are the odds for the Three-Point Contest and NBA Skills Competition.
