DATE: February 17, 2019 - 8:00 PM
STAR RATING: 6.0
EXPERT: Will Rogers
EVALUATION: Loss (-660) - Final Score LEBRON 178 at GIANNIS 164
The set-up: This is more an “event” than a game. Clearly you have to be careful wagering on these types of events, as for the most part, this contest means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things and it’s going to come down to whichever of the two sides is the more “motivated” in the end. In my opinion, that’s the team Giannis.
The pick: I think there are far too many “egos” on LeBron James’ team. James, Anthony Davis, James Harden and Kevin Durant all on the same team looks good on paper, but I doubt the chemistry. The East has harder working players that would I believe can work better together in this event. Throw in the fact that Steph Curry will be wanting to put a dagger in The Kings plans tonight, then I obviously wouldn’t be completely shocked by an outright upset. That said however, I’ll still recommend grabbing as many points as you can.
