CHICAGO – The NBA’s annual All-star Weekend is here with the Celebrity game beginning an exciting three days of basketball. This year’s Celebrity game features two of ESPN’s most prominent on-air talents facing off as Stephen A. Smith’s team is a three-point underdog listed at online sportsbooks.
The race for the MVP of this game is led by the leader of the hip-hop trio Migos, Quavo with +200 odds followed by comedian Famous Los with +300 odds. The MVP race will be between these two and expect it to be like last year’s Celebrity game where Quavo dropped a game-high 27 points, nine rebounds, and two steals.
If Quavo’s team would’ve won last year he would’ve been MVP. However, comedian Famous Los was last year’s Celebrity game MVP with 22 points, three assists, and two rebounds in an 82-80 victory for his team.
Bettors should take the +200 odds on Quavo to win NBA celebrity All-star MVP as he’ll most likely score the most points in the game which will put him in position to get his second career MVP trophy in this event.
A longshot to roll the dice on for the Celebrity All-Star game MVP is former NFL defensive lineman Spice Adams at +1600 odds. He’s the only other celebrity in the game with longshot odds worth the look because of his athleticism.
The captains of each team were born and raised in Chicago. The captain for team Stephen A. will be Chance the Rapper and team Wilbon will have the musician Common whose father played in the ABA. The basketball lineage might explain why he has the third shortest odds to win the Celebrity Game MVP at +400.
If you want to bet on which captain will score first in this game Common has -150 odds while Chance the Rapper has +110 odds. NBA bettors may want to give the latter guy a chance at +110 on this prop.
All eyes will be on Stephen A. Smith in this game because that’s what ESPN wants and why he’s among the highest-paid commentators on the network. He’ll be very entertaining from the sidelines in this game and expect him to try maybe even hop on the court and play alongside his team.
Either way BetOnline has some Stephen A. Smith props worth considering for this game.
