Props & odds for NBA All-Star weekend

At Underdog Fantasy, pick’em props are available for the 3-point contest and All-Star Game. Below, we’ll look at some of the more notable players you can select “higher” or “lower” on. 

NBA 3-point contest

Dubbed the “Starry 3-Point Contest,” this event has eight participants. Of the players competing, Malik Beasley of the Milwaukee Bucks tops the list in 3-point shooting percentage at 44.4%, seventh-best in the NBA. There are five racks of balls: four balls are worth one point, the “money ball” is worth two, and the “starry shot” is worth three. 

Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns has a 43.7% 3-point percentage. Beasley has shot 351 threes this season, and Towns has 277. 

NBA All-Star Game

The NBA All-Star Game is back to the old “East vs. West” format, with each player on the winning team getting $100,000. 

Pacers star Tyrese Haliburton will suit up in front of his home crowd with the event in Indianapolis, and LeBron James will make his 20th All-Star appearance. He’ll go up against a star on his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, in Donovan Mitchell on the East side.
