Jacob Toppin has spent the majority of his career in the G League, but his brother, Obi Toppin, won the NBA Slam Dunk contest two years ago. If Jacob Toppin wins on Saturday night in Indianapolis, they will be the first set of brothers to win the dunk contest. His dunking ability has been showcased in the G League, but he is +700 in the 2024 Slam Dunk Contest odds. Defending champion Mac McClung is the -240 favorite (risk $240 to win $100), while Jaylen Brown is +470 and Jaime Jaquez Jr. is +800.

McClung can become the fifth player in league history to win consecutive slam dunk contest titles. Which player from the 2024 Slam Dunk Contest field should you back 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. Brown has never participated in the dunk contest, but he told reporters that he is ready to represent the league's stars on Saturday night. He will be the first All-Star to compete in the event since DeAndre Jordan, who did not contend for that title in 2017.

McClung and Toppin do not regularly play in NBA games, but they have showcased their dunking ability in the past. Stars often refrain from participating in the dunk contest to avoid potential embarrassment, and that is certainly a factor this weekend due to the other players in the field. Selesnick believes Brown has not shown enough creativity to make him worth a bet against the other elite dunkers competing with him. You can see who to back here.
