For the first time since the 2016-17 season, the NBA’s best will play in an All-Star Game representing their conferences Sunday in Atlanta. The last three seasons of Team LeBron vs. Team Stephen or Team Giannis have stained the game, in my opinion. Returning to the conference-vs.-conference format will bring back some standing. LeBron James wound up going 3-0 as a GM, which to me was the last thing the league needed.

I’m not a huge fan of the NBA All-Star Game, as I find that all that offense is offensive to the game. Unfortunately, regular-games are trending in that direction. Still, it is the only game on the NBA board one day each winter, so most bettors are inclined to take part in the action. I have developed a quantitative system that analyzes the rosters and projects a favorite and a point spread. It has been very successful, going 7-3 SU and 6-3-1 ATS over the last 10 years.
