By Christopher Boan

The NBA All-Star festivities return this weekend, giving Arizona sports betting customers a chance to wager on one of their favorite players.

Guard Devin Booker is the lone member of the Phoenix Suns to make the cut, playing as a reserve on Team Durant. Suns head coach Monty Williams is coaching Team LeBron.

The two sides in the game were picked by captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant, setting the stage for Sunday’s tip off at 6 p.m. Arizona time on TNT and TBS.

Here’s what to know about NBA betting on the weekend’s All-Star festivities in Cleveland.

Devin Booker’s All-Star Game MVP Odds & More

The Suns’ lone player in the All-Star Game has the 11th-best odds of winning the ASG MVP award on FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, which is the lone site to list non-game odds.

Booker, who ranks 12th in the NBA in scoring (25.5 PPG), is listed at +2300 to win the MVP, coming well behind favorites Giannis Antetokounmpo (+380), Joel Embiid (+600), LeBron James (+650), Stephen Curry (+750), and Ja Morant (+850).

As for the All-Star Game itself, FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona has Team LeBron at -6 (-110), with a moneyline of -255, and an over/under of 319.5 (-110) total points. Caesars Sportsbook has Team LeBron at -5.5 (-110) and -220, with an over/under of 320.5 (-110).

In the Rising Stars Tournament, which has no Suns players in it, Team Isiah Thomas is the favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona (+170), followed by Team Rick Barry (+260), Team Gary Payton (+300), and Team James Worthy (+350).

No Suns players are in this year’s 3-point contest, though FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona has Patty Mills and Fred VanVleet as the odds leaders at +440 apiece.

The Skills Challenge odds have Team Rookies at -165, Team Cavs at +240, and Team Antetokounmpo at +390.

Suns Among NBA Title Odds Leaders

The Phoenix Suns enter the NBA All-Star break with the league’s best record (48-10), holding a 6.5-game lead over No. 2 Golden State.

The defending Western Conference champs find themselves tied for or below the Warriors, in terms of NBA title odds, on several Arizona betting apps, including FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona.

The New York-based operator has the Suns in a tie with the Warriors for the league’s best title odds at +460, ahead of Milwaukee (+550), Brooklyn (+600), and Philadelphia (+650).

The Suns are tied for the league’s best title odds with the Nets on DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona at +425, ranking ahead of the Warriors (+450), 76ers and Bucks (+700), and Miami Heat (+1200).

Phoenix’s best ranking comes from Caesars Sportsbook Arizona, which has the Suns atop their NBA title leaderboard at +450, ahead of the Warriors (+475), Nets (+550), Bucks (+600), and 76ers (+700).

At BetMGM Arizona the Suns are tied with the Warriors for the best title odds at +450, ahead of the Nets and Bucks (+550), 76ers (+700), and Heat (+1100).

The Suns have a solid shot at franchise history, needing to finish the year 15-9 to eclipse the team’s single season wins record of 62 set during the 1992-93 season.

The Suns also have a shot at finishing atop the Western Conference for the first time since the 2004-05 season and for the fourth time overall in the franchise’s 53-year history.

For now, most of Williams’ players have a chance to sit back and relax during the NBA’s six-day All-Star break before the second half of the regular season kicks off at Oklahoma City on Feb. 24.
