Are you tired of watching some of the best athletes in the world participate in a game where most of the players seem to be allergic to defense, but is somehow labeled as an ​All-Star Game? Need to find a way to spruce up it up? Well, look no further than the many prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook.


Here are five of the best prop bets for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.

5. Total Points Odd/Even: Odd (-116)

This is about as close to a coin flip as you can get. The good news is that the odds are slightly in your favor. Seven of the last 10 All-Star games have finished with an odd point total. That's a pretty solid trend for a 50/50 proposition.

4. First Basket: Kemba Walker (+1400)

The first thing we want to identify is who will win the tip. Seeing that Team LeBron doesn't have a center in its starting lineup, I'm willing to give the edge to Joel Embiid and Team Giannis. Kemba Walker will be a starting guard for Team Giannis in front of his home crowd at the Spectrum Center. I would expect the team to let him take the first shot and get the crowd involved. Plus, who wouldn't like +1400 odds.

3. Win Margin: Team Giannis 1-10 (+340)

The thought process behind this is that this prop is essentially a moneyline bet, but with better odds. The Team Giannis moneyline is currently +235, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, so it's highly unlikely that they win in a blowout. If you're willing to take the risk on the underdog, you might as well sweeten the odds by picking the win margin. And all you need here is a small victory from Team Giannis.

2. Line/Total Double: Team Giannis +6.5 + Under 300.5 (+240)

After years of blowouts in the East vs. West format, the NBA changed it to the current team captain format last season. That All-Star Game ended up with the lowest point total in four years, a three-point win by Team LeBron. Assuming that trend continues, 6.5 points is too many to afford to an All-Star team. We should expect another slow-paced, more competitive game like we saw last year, meaning this one could go under and be within six points when all is said and done.

1. Wire to Wire: Any Other Result (-116)

For those that don't know, wire to wire means that one team would lead for the entirety of the game. In an All-Star Game with an over/under of more than 300 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, the lead should change quite often. With just under even-money odds, this one could be a win in the first few minutes of the game.
