    Knicks center Jericho Sims is favored to win the NBA Dunk Contest.

    The former Texas big man (+150) is favored against Kenyon Martin Jr., Trey Murphy III and Mac McClung in Saturday’s Dunk Contest, per betonline.ag

    He is seeking to become the second straight Knick to win the title after Obi Toppin captured it last season and the first center since Dwight Howard in 2008. Former Knick guard Nate Robinson won three Dunk Contests in 2006, ’09 and ’10.
