Just take a look at Ben Simmons career stats. The giant 0 beneath percentage is tough to miss.
But guess what happened in this weeks preseason game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Chinese Basketball Associations Guangzhou Loong Lions?
You bet he finally made one!
Everybody is suddenly speaking becoming a 3-point shooter that is legit, while he did not score that 3-pointer against an NBA team.
And DraftKings Sportsbook has rolled out an NJ sports gambling market based around Simmons 3-point shooting potential.
Did Sixers fans receive a glimpse of Ben Simmons? Or has been last weeks successful 3-pointer more such as a one-hit wonder?
Thats the assumption behind these DraftKings futures bets:
Remember the two bets mentioned above just apply to regular-season games. He also make 10 of them and could attempt another 20 during the preseason, but none of it counts.
In his previous two seasons in Philadelphia, the point guard has tried a total of 17 3.
Apparently, those efforts need to go far up in case Simmons is going to turn into a threat from outside the arc.
Whether he suddenly attempts more than 65 of these in a season. Whats it worth the risk?
If Simmons drastically increases those shot attempts, making more than 16.5 three-pointers through an 82-game regular season might be in reach. Right?
Nicely, DraftKings is ready to take the action.
In reality, once the 76ers open the regular season on??Oct. 23??against the??Milwaukee Bucks, the Simmons betting market isnt what everyone will be talking about. In concept.
The two teams are favorites and they are going in the Wells Fargo Center.
On newspaper, Philadelphia making it to the NBA Finals??is going to attract betting action.
Here are the Hottest Eastern Seminar futures from DraftKings:
Then there would be the NBA championship futures:
Simmons will once again should play a role if the Sixers and Joel Embiid are likely to stay up to these high expectations. The??All-Star??is averaging 16.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.9 assists for his career.
In reality, shooting, bettors and potentially or the absence thereof, will come as an additional bonus to his team.
Ask ESPNs Jalen Rose.
