This upcoming weekend, the NBA will showcase their 68th All-Star weekend.
Across three days, NBA fans will see the skills challenge, the dunk contest, the All-star game itself and one of the hallmarks of the entire weekend, the three-point contest Saturday night.
The NBA 3-point contest will feature 10 competitors from across the league who are marksmen from downtown. We will also get to see the Curry brothers, Seth and Steph go head-to-head.
Odds To Win NBA 3-point Contest:
Steph Curry +200
Devin Booker +500
Buddy Hield +500
Joe Harris +600
Seth Curry +600
Damian Lillard +800
Kemba Walker +1200
Danny Green +1400
Khris Middleton +2000

2019 NBA 3-Point Contest Picks
Out of the 10 competitors, we have three past winners in Steph Curry (2015), Devin Booker (2018) and Dirk Nowitzki (2006). Seth Curry leads the pact with a 47.8 percent three-point field goal percentage this season. Nowitzki registers the lowest percentage at just over 31 percent.
While Seth Curry has not always been a bonafide starter in the league, he also leads the group with his career 44.3 3-point percentage.
Looking at the odds, Curry and Booker are justified as the top favorites at FanDuel Sportsbook. There are some intriguing prospects like Danny Green (+1400) who has made a career based on his three-point acumen. Also, how cool would it be for the 40-year-old Dirk Nowitzki to walk away with the award? At +3300 odds, that narrative would provide a monster ROI.
At +600, I’m all in on the “other Curry” brother. Give me Seth Curry to overtake not only an entire field of talented behind-the-arc shooters but also his brother. It would be quite the special moment.
.@ToddFuhrman believes Seth Curry is the play to win the 3-point contest at +600:
