NBA All Star Game | Feb 14, 2016
West vs. East
Play: West -5.5 (-108)
Rating: 3*

This is not a contest I will recommend making a huge wager on, but I think it’s reasonable to put a couple of units at work on the West in the NBA All Star game Sunday night. The West have won four of the last five All Star games, and looking at the lineups I think it’s fair to say that they hold an advantage in virtually every aspect this year as well. We should also remember that this is Kobe Bryant’s weekend, and no one would want to see him lose his last All Star game now would they? “We definitely want to send him off on a good note,” Kevin Durant said at media day Friday. “We know he’s going to be super competitive.” Skill and motivational advantages for the West makes this a no-brainer play on the West, but keep the stake small and enjoy the game.
