Team Durant vs. Team LeBron Odds
|Team Durant Odds||+5.5|
|Team LeBron Odds||-5.5|
|Time||Sunday, 8 p.m. ET|
Team LeBron has won a ridiculous four straight All-Star Games — every single exhibition since the leading vote getters in each conference drafted their own teams.
This year, LeBron is favored again — and more than usual. That’s on account of Kevin Durant being out for this game due to injury.
That’s also on account of a more accomplished and more seasoned roster.
Still, bettors felt that Team LeBron’s opening line was too harsh. They’ve moved the line from its open at -6.5 to its current market-best line of -5.5.
Meanwhile, the total has moved too, from its open at 319.5 to its current market-best at 323.5. Some sportsbooks are pricing this contest as high as 324. There’s a chance this line keeps moving up.
Read below to see where the sharp action is heading for the total.
Since 2020, the All-Star Game has hosted a different set of rules than those that typically govern the NBA regular season or playoffs.
In what’s called the “Elam Ending,” teams play the first three quarters normally. Whichever team has the highest score heading into the fourth quarter sets the target game score, which the two teams then try to reach during an untimed quarter.
The target game score is the leading team’s score plus 25 points.
For instance, if Team LeBron is up 130-120 heading into the fourth, whichever team reaches 155 points first during the subsequent quarter will win the game.
The two games that have played under these set of guidelines have hit totals of 312 and 320.
