NBA 3-Point Contest Prediction: Can Luke Kennard Get the Job Done?

The NBA all-star weekend returns, and I am fired up for this weekend! The best part about the all-star weekend is the bets we can make during it, including the three-point contest and dunk contest!

The first article I want to write about is going to be the three-point contest. Now I do not want to brag too much here, but two of the last three years, I picked the winner of the three-point contest. I think I am going to do that once again this year. We have so many strong candidates going to work this year.

NBA 3-Point Contest Prediction

I think the value can be more in the longshots to take this thing home and to bet at least two players. Typically the way the lines are set, you can get Value as long as one of these guys takes home the crown.

The first player I am throwing some money on will be former Duke Blue Devil in the form of Luke Kennard. Ken ard comes off the bench for the LA Clippers and has been outstanding from distance this season.

Coming out of college, it was obvious he could shoot the basketball, but his growth over the last couple of seasons has been something to be noted. I think the value we are getting with this sharpshooter is too solid to pass up on, so I will be riding with Luke here to kick us off.

Look out for his corner three to be lethal in this contest and lead us to victory in this three-point shooting contest! The second player I am throwing some money on will come in the form of Desmond Bane.

I love the line we are getting here, and I think we can cash this one as well. The way he has shot the ball from distance this season is a very encouraging sign, and I believe he will be able to light it up on Saturday night. Bane has played with a chip on his shoulder since entering the NBA and will be well motivated to win this thing on Saturday night! Again these types of bets are all about the value that we can get on these players, and this is a great line, in my opinion! I am excited to cash one of these in and keep things rolling! I hope everyone has a great all-star weekend, and I will be back with a special bet on the dunk contest shortly!
