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

1. ## 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

3. ## Re: Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

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

4. ## Re: Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

I don't really understand this. Could someone please explain?

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.

6. ## Re: Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

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.

10. ## Re: Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

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...

11. ## Re: Vegas puts Danny at 3-1 odds in the 3-pt shootout

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.
