Skills Challenge

While it’s nice the NBA is giving a few skilled centers a shot in this contest, Nikola Jokic and Nikola Vucevic are at severe disadvantages. This is a time-based event that depends on dribbling through cones to finish. That obviously benefits guards. Even though Karl-Anthony Towns (2016) and Kristaps Porzingis (2017) managed to pull out wins in recent years, we’re not advising a bet on 2019’s lumbering 7-footers.

Luka Doncic is drawing the most money because he’s clearly a skilled player with a complete game. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be able to run the field in an obstacle course setting.

We’re looking at speedsters, particularly second-year Kings PG De’Aaron Fox, who claimed to Slam Magazine that he’s the fastest player in the NBA. Fox is getting value at 4.5/1 odds on both FanDuel Sportsbook despite the fact that offshore sites have him listed (at +250) as the favorite.

Trae Young is a similarly quick young PG with a more reliable jump shot than Fox. He’s getting value at +500 on DraftKings Sportsbook and is worth a gamble on that site.

Don’t overlook veteran PG Mike Conley. He is still as quick as those younger floor generals and getting great value on both books.

But our best contrarian option to bet upon would be Jayson Tatum. The skilled forward is getting +700 odds on FD sportsbook and is unlikely to see heavy action because of the perception he’s not as quick as those guards. Yet Tatum is a great ball-handler with the ability to glide from end-to-end and make the requisite jumpers with ease. As long as he can complete the passing challenge, he could post the best time of the contest.

3-Point Contest

Of course, Steph Curry, the greatest shooter of the modern era, is the favorite to win this contest. He last won in 2015 at MSG and fell to teammate Klay Thompson in the finals in 2016. Curry has declined to participate the last two years but will take advantage of the opportunity to compete in Charlotte.

This is a special contest in a city where grew up and often watched his father, Dell, hoop. Seth Curry is also in the contest and is getting good odds on FD Sportsbook. Still, the Portland guard is not established enough to trust under the bright lights.

The main contenders are Steph and Devin Booker, who topped Curry’s record with a score of 28 in the finals to clinch the trophy last season. However, Booker is shooting just 32.9% from 3-point range this season and has dealt with a few nagging injuries. Curry is shooting 44.7% from deep despite defenses game-planning to try and run him off the 3-point line. Steph holds two of the top-five longest make streaks (13 and 11) in contest history. Thus, the probable outcome is for him to get hot and snare the trophy.

If you want to take an underdog, we’d advise going well down the list to make sure you’re getting enough value to offset the likelihood Steph Curry wins.

Danny Green is an intriguing option at +1400 on FanDuel Sportsbook. He’s shooting 42% from long range this season and has an efficient, consistent release that he perfected early in his career after he was cut by Cleveland.

Kemba Walker managed to finish third last season and is a decent longshot to consider in front of his home crowd. Yet the problem with Walker and Damian Lillard is the speed of their shooting motion. Both have endured exhausting seasons and might not have the legs to compete in multiple rounds.

Finally, Khris Middleton offers longshot appeal with 20/1 odds. He’s shooting 37.7% from three during a “down year” but remains a very consistent shooter with an efficient motion. His odds seem long because he was eliminated in the first round in 2016. Still, he’s more of a veteran at this point and could bounce back on this stage in a redemptive effort.
