NBA All-Star 3-Point Contest Prediction

In last year’s contest, big man Karl Anthony-Towns took home the crown after beating Zach LaVine, Fred VanVleet and Trae Young in the final round.

Buddy Hield (+400) took home the trophy in 2020 with his final money ball on the last rack to beat Devin Booker and leads the NBA in three-pointers made (224).

Anfernee Simons (+500) sits second in the NBA in three-pointers made (195) on 3.5 threes per game whilst his backcourt partner Damian Lillard (+450) averages 4.1 a night.

Jayson Tatum (+500) ranks seventh in the NBA in three-pointers made (177) and seventh in three-point attempts per game (9.3) and also competed in the contest two years ago.

Tatum had 25 points in the first round but couldn’t find more than 17 in the final round and finished third behind Steph Curry (28) and Mike Conley (27).

Our prediction: Jayson Tatum to win NBA 3-point contest @ +500
