NBA All-Star Game 2020 Favors Team LeBron
The Rising Stars showcase was a shootout as Team USA beat Team World 151-131 Saturday. That followed an exciting 3-point contest that came down to the final shot from Buddy Hield, who edged Devin Booker.
The slam dunk competition was another highlight real display. Former UNLV player Derrick Jones, Jr. won it, but many bettors couldn’t cash in as the slam dunk betting was taken off the board in New Jersey.
Now the attention turns to the 2020 All-Star Game. Team LeBron is taking money, and up to a 6.5 point favorite. As noted in my article at Forbes, the Team LeBron roster is significantly better in cumulative player efficiency ratings, according to the Hollinger player efficiency ratings.
The game total has also been bet up to 306.5, despite the change in rules and format for the fourth quarter to honor Kobe Bryant.
The NBA announced today a new format for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game that makes the outcome of every quarter count for charity. The changes include a new fourth-quarter format that will honor the late Kobe Bryant.
