As always, the NBA All-Star weekend has arrived, so fans have an array of side events to wager on. That includes NBA dunk contest odds, which feature the defending champ returning and favored over the field. Mac McClung, G League dunker extraordinaire, will attempt to go back-to-back. In doing so, he’ll try to join Zach LaVine, Nate Robinson, Jason Richardson and Michael Jordan in accomplishing the feat.

The dunk contest takes place Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET in Indianapolis. TNT will provide the coverage.

Not only did McClung win the dunk contest last year, he earned nearly perfect scores across the board. The longtime viral dunker garnered perfect 50s on three of his four dunks, including both dunks he performed in the final round to shut out Trey Murphy III.

After going off at plus-odds as late as the day before the contest last year, McClung is now solidly entrenched as the clear favorite. It’s going to take something spectacular to topple the dunking legend.

Brown is considered the top challenger. The high-flying Celtic has had some spectacular dunks, including a poster job against Rudy Gobert earlier this season.

Toppin is the younger brother of former slam dunk champ Obi. He’s playing on a two-way contract this year and brings an impressive vertical to the table, much like that of his brother.

Jaquez is a bit of a surprise entrant to the dunk contest. Not considered an especially explosive leaper, Jaquez’s impressive skill level has enabled him to contribute immediately to a Heat team coming off an NBA Finals appearance.

The NBA didn’t add anything new and notable for this year’s rules. Judges for the 2024 dunk contest include former winners Dominique Wilkins and Fred Jones, as well as former NBA stars Mitch Richmond and Gary Payton.
