Kevin Durant is on fire. The Oklahoma City forward leads the NBA in scoring at 31.2 points per game, and he scored at least 30 points in 12 straight games during a torrid January stretch. It’s pretty easy to see why oddsmakers have Durant posted as the favorite to be named MVP of the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans.

Durant, who was named the MVP in 2012, is listed at 3/1 to win it again this year at Bodog. Miami forward LeBron James is next on the list at 7/2. James has won two All-Star MVP awards in his career.

The two superstars squared off two weeks ago in Miami, with Durant going off for 33 points in a 112-95 Thunder win. James answered with 34 points of his own, mostly with Durant guarding him.

Hometown favorite, second-year forward Anthony Davis of the host New Orleans Pelicans, is listed at No. 3 on the Bodog All-Star Game MVP odds. Davis is listed at 17/2, followed by the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (10/1) and Golden State point guard Stephen Curry (11/1).

Curry also will be competing in the NBA Three-Point Shootout and is the favorite at 2/1. Golden State’s sharp-shooter leads the NBA with 167 three-pointers.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, who won the Three-Point Shootout in 2012, is next at 4/1, followed by Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo (5/1). Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, the defending champion, is listed at 11/2. Portland point guard Damian Lillard will be competing in both the Three-Point Shootout and the Dunk Contest; Lillard is 6/1 to win the Three-Point Contest and 5/1 to be voted the Dunker of the Night.

In the Dunk Contest, Indiana’s rising star Paul George is a big +115 favorite (23/20) over a star-studded group of players to be voted Dunker of the Night. Defending-champion Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors is next at 7/2, followed by Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (9/2), Sacramento Kings rookie Ben McLemore (5/1), Lillard (5/1), and Golden State guard Harrison Barnes (17/2).

The NBA’s top players will be on display this weekend as the league stages its 2013 All-Star Game in Houston, with the Western Conference looking to pay off against the Eastern Conference once again.

The West topped the East as a betting underdog on the NBA All-Star Game odds at sportsbooks like Bodog last season, winning 152-149 at Orlando’s Amway Center behind MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant is back on the Western roster as a starter again for this year’s game, which tips off at 8:00pm ET on Sunday night. He’s joined by the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, and the Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin and Chris Paul in the starting lineup.

LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, James Harden, David Lee, Tony Parker, Zach Randolph, and Russell Westbrook round out the roster for the Western Conference, which will be coached by the San Antonio Spurs’ Gregg Popovich.

The Eastern Conference starting lineup includes the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony, the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, and the Boston Celtics’ Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo – although Rondo is injured and won’t be playing in the game.

Miami’s Erik Spoelstra will coach the Eastern All-Stars this season, with Chris Bosh, Tyson Chandler, Luol Deng, Paul George, Jrue Holiday, Kyrie Irving, Brook Lopez, and Joakim Noah filling out the conference’s roster for the game.

For the Slam-Dunk Contest this weekend, Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz is the defending champion but he’s back at 8/1 on the Slam Dunk odds at Bodog to win the event again this year. James White of the New York Knicks is pegged as the 5/4 favorite.

And in the Three-Point Shootout, the Knicks’ Steve Novak and the Warriors’ Stephen Curry are both listed at 5/2 odds at Bodog, with Irving of the Cavaliers and Ryan Anderson of the Hornets next on the Three Point Contest odds at 4/1.
