Mac McClung might not be on an NBA roster right now, but he will try to win back-to-back dunk contests when he participates in the 2024 NBA Slam Dunk contest on Saturday night. Three of his four dunks last year earned perfect scores, with all of them being completed on his first attempt. He is the -190 favorite (risk $190 to win $100) in the latest 2024 Slam Dunk contest odds for All-Star Weekend. Joining McClung in the 2024 Slam Dunk contest field are Jaylen Brown, Jacob Toppin and Jaime Jaquez Jr

Brown is second on the NBA odds board at +420, while Toppin is +600 and Jaquez is +650 for the dunk contest, which is the final event of a loaded evening that begins with the Kia Skills Challenge at 8 p.m. ET. Which player should you target with your 2024 Slam Dunk Contest bets? Before making any 2024 Slam Dunk Contest picks or All-Star weekend predictions, you need to see the picks and best bets from SportsLine’s NBA expert Alex Selesnick.

Top NBA Slam Dunk contest picks, predictions

One surprise: Selesnick is fading Brown, who is the only All-Star in the four-man field. He is going to be the first All-Star to participate in the dunk contest since DeAndre Jordan in 2017. Brown will bring more hype to this event, especially since he is known for regularly throwing down impressive dunks during games. 

However, Selesnick questions Brown’s creativity, especially since some of the other contestants have experience in this type of event. Toppin’s older brother, Obi, won this event in 2022, while McClung was a dynamic winner last year. Brown certainly adds excitement to Saturday night’s field, but Selesnick is going in a different direction with his best bet. You can see who to back here.
