While the Dunk Competition was a staple of All-Star Saturday Night, the 3-point shootout became the weekend’s best event.
This year, the field is very balanced – especially when big time Karl Anthony-Towns joins the mix.
WynnBET have set the odds for the dunk contest, so let’s dive into the competition.
Top picks to make it to the finals
Trae Young +600
With the addition of the “Mist Zone” shadow, shooting from the depths is more important than ever. No one in this league is on the level of Young. He should be able to capitalize from the deep areas and keep himself in the race, even if he starts slow. Young will have rivalry with VanVleet and Luke Kennard, but he’s shown time and time again that he doesn’t care about pressure.
Fred VanVleet +550
VanVleet is one of the best marksmen in this competition. He shoots 40.1% of the season and has a great range. Many times in this competition, the most obvious pick usually doesn’t make it to the final round. If VanVleet can go on, especially from deep areas, he can run.
Zach LaVine +600
This will be LaVine’s third appearance in the three-point competition and I’m working on the experience. LaVine is up 39.9 percent on three this season and can certainly get hot when needed. If LaVine can finally slay his demons and get off to a quick start, he could set a high bar for the rest of the field.
As a betting option, LaVine has a lot of value. At +600, LaVine is there with Young and has a chance to do a serious run.
