The folks over at Bovada have released their most recent odds for each of the events during All-Star Weekend and they were kind enough to send those odds over.
Much like the Slam Dunk Contest, the 3-point Contest has a lot more star power this season.
Two former winners, Minnesota Timberwolves’ power forward Kevin Love, who won the contest in 2012, and Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard Kyrie Irving, who won last year, are in the event.
The favorite, however, is Golden State Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry, who some pundits believe could be the greatest shooter ever by the time he hangs them up.
Love, Irving and Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo, who has the third-best 3-point percentage in the contest, are next with 5-1 odds.
Washington Wizards’ guard Bradley Beal is next with Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard, who will compete in every event, is next.
At 8/1, San Antonio Spurs’ guard Marco Belinelli, who leads the entire league in 3-point percentage, has the second worst odds. Brooklyn Nets All-Star guard Joe Johnson brings up the rear.
