2023 NBA Slam Dunk Contest Odds

Sportsbooks love New York Knicks' big man Jericho Sims and give him +170 odds or an implied 37% chance to win. His biggest competition is expected to be Kenyon Martin Jr. who’s given +210 odds or an implied 32.3% chance.

Mac McClung is third on the market with +250 odds or an implied 28.6% chance to take home the Philadelphia 76ers' first slam dunk victory in franchise history. Trey Murphy brings up the rear with +320 odds or an implied 23.8% chance to bring home the New Orleans Pelicans' first victory in franchise history.

The Knicks are looking for their record-sixth slam dunk contest victory. In fact, if Sims wins he’ll be the fourth Knick to take home the title joining Nate Robinson, Obi Toppin, and Kenny Walker. The Hawks are the only other team that’s ever won four dunk contests, and no franchise has ever had four separate winners. If the sportsbooks are right it could be a historic night.
