NBA Three-Point Contest Odds: Warriors’ Stephen Curry Heavily Favored

NBA All-Star weekend is officially underway in Toronto, Ontario. After an exciting BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night, three individual events will take place on Saturday with some of the league’s best and brightest set to square off.

Once a winner is crowned in Taco Bell Skills Challenge, some of the NBA’s best shooters will put their skills on display in the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest. Although there’s plenty of talented players competing in the Skills Challenge and the Verizon Slam Dunk contest, the three-point shootout may be the most entertaining.

Eight of the league’s elite three-point shooters will take center stage on Saturday night and here’s the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest odds via

Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors: -125
James Harden, Houston Rockets: +1500
Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors: +350
Khris Middleton, Milwaukee Bucks: +1800
Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors: +1000
JJ Redick, Los Angeles Clippers: +450
CJ McCollum, Portland Trail Blazers: +1600
Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns: +1200

As expected, last year’s winner Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is the clear favorite to come out on top in the three-point shootout. Curry has put up ridiculous numbers during the Warriors’ title defense and has taken his game to another level after winning NBA MVP.

Curry’s teammate Klay Thompson is the next line with +350 to come out on top on Saturday night. Thompson has also had another solid season and could be Curry’s toughest challenge, but there’s no shortage of elite shooters in this group.

J.J. Redick (+450) and Kyle Lowry (+1000) may surprise people in this competition. Lowry will be representing the Toronto Raptors while playing in front of the hometown crowd. Redick, however, has experience in this competition and is also playing at a high level this season shooting a career-high 47.6 percent from beyond the arc for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Curry is the popular bet for this three-point shootout, but Thompson, Lowry, and Redick are also reliable options to pull off the upset.
