One of the fixtures for the NBA’s All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City will involve the Jordan Rising Stars event. Team Pau, named after Pau Gasol, will meet Team Deron, named after Deron Williams. These two teams will be loaded with NBA young players with a start time tonight of 9:00 PM ET.

The Pick: +110 on Team Deron (bet365)

Team Pau will feature the following players: Paolo Banchero, Bennedict Mathurin, Jaden Ivey, Scottie Barnes, Jose Alvarado, Keegan Murray, and Andrew Nembhard.

Team Deron will have Franz Wagner, Alperen Sengun, Trey Murphy III, AJ Griffin, Bones Hyland, Walker Kessler, and Ayo Dosunmu. The latter player, Dosunmu, will replace Jalen Green, who is injured.

All-Star Weekend betting is tricky

Games like this are very non-standard in terms of format and motivation. The NBA will feature the Elam format for the game, meaning that the two teams will play to a set final score instead of a timed ending. In games like this one, where you simply cannot count on motivation, bettors should just go with the longer odds.

The best player in the game is Paolo Banchero, however, who knows what his state of mind, usage, and chemistry will be like in this frivolous event? Team Deron has the longer odds between the two teams at +110 (11/10) versus -130 (10/13) for Team Pau. Our recommendation is just going to be to go with the underdog in this case.
