- Team World Wire-to-Wire Win (+530) – Since the NBA switched this game from Rookie vs. Sophomore to Team USA vs. Team World, the non-American teams have won 3-of-4 contests. With premier talent up and down this roster, including the reigning MVP for this game (Bogdanovic), the 2018 Rookie of the Year (Simmons), the favorite for 2019 Rookie of the Year (Doncic) and 2018 NBA Draft No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton, Team World should be able to snag an early lead and never look back.
