NBA All-Star Weekend 2022 is almost here, and anticipation is growing ahead of the festivities. The annual slam dunk contest is always one of the highlights, with some of the league's most-exciting players showing off their aerial skills.

While the competition is expected to be close, Houston Rockets rookie Jalen Green is the current +155 favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Despite being a 6-foot-4 guard, Green hasn't been afraid to dunk on more experienced players this season. He already has 34 dunks on 41 attempts (82.9%) this season and will be looking to showcase that skill in Cleveland on Friday.

New York Knicks forward Obi Toppin comes in second at +220 odds. He's the only competitor to have competed in last year's dunk contest, placing second to Anfernee Simons by just one point. Meanwhile, Orlando Magic guard Cole Anthony (+250) rounds out the top three.

Here's a look at how the rest of the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest odds are shaping up.
