Karl-Anthony Towns of Team USA and the Minnesota Timberwolves is a favorite to win the 2017 NBA All Star Weekend Rising Stars competition with a payout potential of $25 for every $10 bet.


Karl-Anthony Towns (pays $25 for every $10 bet)

Karl-Anthony Towns completed the first half of the season with his 12th straight game scoring 20 or more points, but his streak of 36 straight free throws came to an end the other night as Towns finished 7-of-8 from the line and 8-of-19 from the field.

Towns was averaging 28.1 points and 10.5 rebounds per game over the last 8 contests coming into the All Star break.

Kristaps Porzingis (pays $40 for every $10 bet)

The Latvian player, a member of the New York Knicks, is currently battling a stomach virus so might not be a good bet Friday.

D'Angelo Russell (pays $80 for every $10 bet)

Russell has banged home eight triples over the past three outing for the LA Lakers but his performance is often erratic.

Devin Booker (pays $100 for every $10 bet)

Considered one of the better back court threats this season and a top pick for fantasy rosters, Booker finished with 27 points (10-19 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go along with five rebounds and four assists across 33 minutes in Friday's 115-97 win against the Bulls.
