The NBA-All Star Game will take place at 8:00 p.m. ET Sunday in Cleveland, Ohio to wrap up the weekend’s festivities. In game featuring this many stars, it’s hard to say who will emerge as the All-Star Game MVP. Here’s a look at the players with the top odds to win the award per DraftKings Sportsbook, along with darkhorse plays and the full list of odds.

Update: Stephen Curry dropped 50 points and he ended up taking home the Kobe Bryant MVP award. Team LeBron defeated Team Durant 163-160 on a game-winner by James.

Update: Donovan Mitchell, who was +3500 to win ASG MVP, is out for the contest with a non-COVID illness. That’ll likely help some of the top players in terms of odds.

NBA All-Star Game MVP odds

Favorite pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo (+450)

The Greek Freak didn’t quite get his team over the line in the Skills Challenge, but he’ll be given much more space to shine in this contest. Antetokounmpo is able to power his way past opponents when they’re playing defense, so what’s he going to do with no resistance? The reigning Finals MVP will be looking to make a statement ahead of the final stretch of the season and he’s the odds-on favorite after winning this honor last year.

Sleeper pick: Nikola Jokic (+2500)

Jokic has seen his odds tumble since they opened, which some fans and bettors might take as a sign of continued disrespect towards the Nuggets big man. He’s likely going to be on the winning team in Team LeBron, and that automatically gives him a leg up on the field. Jokic is also going to start, and will be an all-around threat statistically. He’s a tremendous value play at +2500.
