Skills Challenge

Last year, we highlighted Jayson Tatum as a great value option with +700 odds and the slender forward went on to win the Skills Challenge. While Tatum might not repeat as champion, he possesses the type of unique athleticism that is perfect to target in this competition. Perhaps just as importantly, he’s a competitive young player and gave a full effort in every round. Sharp action has moved Tatum’s odds from the middle of the pack at around +600 to the second favorite behind Dinwiddie at most books.

Veteran guard Khris Middleton doesn’t really fit the same criteria as Tatum and big man Domantas Sabonis is also relatively slow. Bam Adebayo is worth a very low stakes bet as a highly competitive and highly skilled big man who is actually a decent 3-point shooter.

Spencer Dinwiddie has the most intriguing narrative since he was not even invited back to the event after winning the Skills Challenge in 2018. He will likely use that disrespect for motivation and you can bet that the Nets point guard is actually training on a similar course to try and win a second trophy.

Pascal Siakam is a decent value to consider since he can likely go end-to-end faster than any player in this contest. He’s a great pull-up shooter from 3-point range, but can he make the dreaded pass through that hoop?

3-Point Contest

The first thing to note about this year’s 3-point contest is the addition of two more shots from 30 feet out. These “Mountain Dew Zone” spots are located to the right and left of the center rack, and give contestants the opportunity to earn 3 points for each hit.

With Damian Lillard (groin) unable to compete this weekend, Devin Booker takes his spot in the 3-point shootout and in the ASG Sunday night. Previously snubbed after posting gaudy numbers this season, Booker will be out for revenge and makes for an intriguing bet at 5/1 odds.

The reigning champ, Joe Harris, is favored at most books, but we’re not expecting the role player to start a streak here. He’s shooting 40.8% from downtown this year after leading the NBA with a 47.4% mark last season.

The hottest shooter leading into the break is Miami’s Duncan Robinson, who has hit at least 3 triples in a whopping 16 straight games. Robinson has set shooting records at every stop during his windy journey to the NBA. Live Davis Bertans, he’s a lanky shooter with limited motion and lift on his shot, which should afford him the stamina necessary to keep his stroke consistent throughout the contest. Due in part to his recent hot streak, Robinson saw heavy action when odds opened and has moved from +700 at some books to the third favorite at +460 at FD Sportsbook.

As competitive as Trae Young may be, we’re not confident backing him in this format due to his winding shooting motion.

Finally, Buddy Hield is getting undervalued since he comes into this contest red hot with 51 made 3-pointers over his last 10 games.
