The NBA Rising Stars game is billed as a showcase for the future of the league and this year’s field may be the best in recent memory.

Rookies Ja Morant and Zion Williamson have had sensational performances in their respective seasons. Trae Young is an All-Star Game starter and the third-leading scorer in the NBA. Devonte’ Graham is a strong candidate for Most Improved Player and Luka Doncic is a top five player in the game when he’s healthy.

So how will all this manifest itself on the court? Our NBA experts give detail their favorite bets for the game below.


Odds as of Thursday and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.


Wob: Team USA Moneyline

Let’s just use process of elimination. Luka Doncic is banged up and if he’s going to actually play and/or try in anything it’s going to be Sunday night’s game, not Rising Stars.

Rui Hachimura just returned from having … surgery. RJ Barrett is recently back in the lineup after an ankle sprain. That’s not good news for anyone backing the world, you are relying on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to not only care, but carry the team.

Maybe Nickeil Alexander-Walker goes Summer League bonkers on this game to remind everybody he’s legit and should not be buried in Alvin Gentry’s doghouse. But that’s way too many ifs to ever consider taking them.

This US roster is honestly the best i’ve ever seen at this event since they started doing USA vs. World. Not only do you have the Ja Morant/Jaren Jackson wrecking ball, but they are flanked by a stone-cold killer in Devonte Graham who has already expressed to us exclusively how excited he is for this game.

The biggest problem team USA has is that they may honestly be TOO good and everyone will be trying to get theirs. Haven’t even mentioned yet that Trae Young and Miles Bridges are out here too.
