The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has Team U.S. favored by -3 ½ points with the over under line of 290 ½ points.

The concept of the Rising Stars is as follows. Each roster will have ten first year and second year players. Those born in the USA will play for the US team and those born outside the US will play for the World team.

Notables from the US squad will feature second year pro De’Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings. The Kings guard has been instrumental in changing the culture and direction of the Kings making the team a legitimate playoff contender. He is averaging 17 points and 7.2 assists per game which was a dramatic improvement over his rookie campaign. Fox increased his shooting percentage to 46.1% and added strength in the offseason.

Second year man Donovan Mitchell of the Jazz is on the USA roster. Mitchell is averaging 22 points per game which is an improvement on scoring from last season. He has seen a dip in his two and three point shooting from his rookie campaign.

Sophomore Jayson Tatum will play for the US. He had a great postseason for the Boston Celtics last year. He averages 15.6 points and 40.6% from three this season.

The World features talented rookie Luka Doncic. The Maverick rookie is averaging 20.7 points per game. He is grabbing 7.2 rebounds and dishing 5.6 assists. All this at the young age of 19 years old.

Last year’s rookie of the year Ben Simmons will sport the World jersey. The second year man is averaging 16.8 points per game. He is converting 57.1% from the field. Simmons doesn’t shoot threes. This may prevent Simmons from being a focal point on the 76ers with Butler, Embiid and Tobias Harris on the court.

Lauri Markkanen of the Chicago Bulls will play for the World. He has only seen action in 35 games this season due to injury. The 21 year old is averaging 18.5 points per game which is an improvement from his rookie season. His three point shooting has improved to 38.3%.
