According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, New York’s James White is the favorite to win, as he has 5/4 odds to win. Other short odds to win are Toronto’s Terrence Ross (7/2) and Indiana’s Gerald Green (4/1). The defending champion, Jeremy Evans of Utah, surprisingly has 8/1 odds to win.

White has not done much on the court this season, scoring just 1.8 points per game. However, he is known for being quite the high flyer and had some spectacular dunks in an international dunk contest in the past. White is 6-7. The Knicks have had four former Slam Dunk champions, with the last being Nate Robinson in 2010.

Ross is a decent contributor for Toronto, as he averages 6.4 points per game. He stands 6-6 and has plenty of leaping ability. The Raptors have only had one Slam Dunk champion, and that was Vince Carter in 2000.

Green is a former winner, as he took the 2007 title as a member of the Boston Celtics. Green stands 6-8 and averages 6.6 points per game this season. The Pacers have claimed one Slam Dunk title. That was Fred Jones in 2004.
