The folks over at Bovada have released their most recent odds for the three main events at All-Star Weekend – the Three Point Contest, the Slam Dunk Contest and the actual All-Star Game itself and they were kind of enough to send those odds over.
Much like the Slam Dunk Contest, the Three Point Shootout has a lot of star power. Golden State Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry, Minnesota Timberwolves’ power forward Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard Kyrie Irving, Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard and Brooklyn Nets’ guard Joe Johnson (we all hear the snickers) were all named to the All-Star team. San Antonio Spurs’ guard Marco Belinelli has the highest three point percentage in the contest while Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo isn’t far behind. Washington Wizards’ guard Bradley Beal looks like a future All-Star.
It’s no surprise that Curry is the favorite, but the field does feature the 2012 winner (Love) and the 2013 winner (Irving).
