NBA Three-Point Contest

Klay Thompson is the clear favorite, but he’s a better bet at Bovada at +210 than at BetOnline where he’s just +200. Bovada’s odds are better, overall. The most significant difference between the odds at both sites is Kyle Lowry, who is just +850 to win the Three-Point Contest at SportsBetting.ag, but +1000.

Our Pick: Lowry makes a lot of sense at 10/1 especially with his price being so different on Bovada. He’s as good of a shooter as anyone in the competition. Devin Booker at +550 and Wayne Ellington +700 at both sites are also exciting longshot plays. Klay is much too big of a favorite for a competition that is wide open and has so many participants.

SportsBetting.ag is the better option for bettors, aside from Larry Nance Jr., which is a better option at Bovada at +300. Smith Jr. at +175, Mitchell at +225, and Oladipo at +450 all should be bet at SportsBetting.ag.

Our Pick: Smith has had some nice dunks this year, but I like the dark horse of Oladipo at +400. He’s the most talented of this group and may wish to show off as a newly established star in the league.
