NBA Weekly Betting Update- Feb. 13

The NBA closes for business at the end of the week for its annual All-Star break, but there is still
plenty of betting action on the board at BetAnySports this weekend in conjunction all the events on the schedule. From Friday night’s Rising Stars Challenge, which features the best young
players in the league in a Team USA vs. Team World format to Sunday’s All-Star Game, which
pits Team LeBron vs. Team Giannis, all three days feature betting events. Saturday’s highlight
is the annual Slam Dunk Contest.

Leading up to this weekend’s All-Star festivities, the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern
Conference and the Golden State Warriors out West continue to set the pace at the top of their
respective standings. The Bucks are holding onto a one-game lead over the Toronto Raptors
with a straight-up record of 42-14. They knocked off Chicago 112-99 on Monday as 11.5-point
