Thread: Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

  1. #1

    Default Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

    Jason Kopono: +120
    Danny Granger: +300
    Rashard Lewis: +300
    Roger Mason: +500
    Daequan Cook: +700
    Mike Bibby: +800


    for the unaware, +120 = 1.2-1, +300 = 3-1, etc

    I'd take Roger Mason @ 5-1 odds all day long.

    I'll give you an example using a $5 bet.

    If you bet on Kapono, you get your $5 back plus 1.2 x 5, so you make $6.
    Granger or Lewis gets you 3 x 5 = $15.
    Mason gets you 5 x 5 = $25.
    Cook: 7 x 5 = $35.
    Bibby: 8 x 5 = $40.

    I'm surprised they have Granger so high. I think he's a good 3-pt shooter, but I woulda thought Mason and Lewis woulda been above him.

    So basically you make more money in this situation if Bibby wins and you had bet on him, right?

    i didn't quite understand it either but come on man, the explanation was spoon-fed to you. yes you make more money...

    I too feel as though Granger is a little too high in this. My expectations are quite low to be honest...

    The best way to learn about things like this is to bet on stuff. It's great fun.

    I think Danny is a bad bet. Nobody should take that. Mason is a decent bet. I think Kapono will win but he just doesn't give enough money. If you can parlay Kapono with something else though...

    If I wouldn't take Kapono, I'd probably take Mason, but then again I don't know if he's a volume shooter or not.
