A favorite of players in most sportsbook pay per head sites is the 3-point contest. And this year will be played with a twist. Aside from the usual 5 racks, there will be two green balls 6 feet behind the 3-point line. This will be worth 3 points. The maximum score is now 40. Of course, players will get an additional 10 seconds, totaling 70 seconds to finish each round. This is a 2-round event. The players with the 3 top scores will move on to the championship round. Defending champion Joe Harris, Damian Lillard, Buddy Hield, Tray Young, among others, will be competing for this title.
Lastly, your NBA All Star offerings for your Pay Per Head site should have odds for the Slam Dunk competition, where veterans like Dwight Howard and Aaron Gordon will be playing, together with Pat Connaughton and Derrick Jones Jr. This is a two-round, 2 dunk per round event, with scores from 6-10 to be given by judges. The player who has the highest combined score in their final round dunks will win.
