2018 Participants & Expert Analysis

Klay Thompson

  • Three Point Contest Betting Odds: +210
The Golden State Warriors shooting guard is a phenomenal three-point shooter that ranks third in the league in three-pointers made so far this season (184) and threes made per game (3.2) There’s a reason why he’s the favorite.

Eric Gordon

  • Three Point Contest Betting Odds: +450

Phoenix Suns young shooting guard Devin Booker is a flat-out star, but he’s only attempted 308 threes this season although he is shooting a healthy 38.3% from beyond the arc. Booker has been out of the lineup for the Suns with a hip injury, so he may not be in his best form heading into this contest!
