Jayson Tatum is among the betting favorites to shine his skills brightest.
DraftKings Sportsbook on Thursday set the Boston Celtics forward’s odds of winning the 2020 NBA Skills Challenge at +500.
Tatum’s Skills Challenge lines are tied for second-best in a tight field, which the Brooklyn Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie and the Milwaukee Bucks’ Khris Middleton lead as favorites at +450.
The odds of the Los Angeles Clippers’ Patrick Beverley and the Toronto Raptors’ Pascal Siakam winning Saturday’s competition are slightly worse at +600.
