  • Should you favor last year's champ Jayson Tatum or a longshot like Patrick Beverley?

The annual NBA Skills Challenge typically doesn’t get as much hype as the rest of Saturday night’s events, but the amount of all-around talent involved in this competition far exceeds the others.

This year’s field features three former winners: Patrick Beverly in 2015, Spencer Dinwiddie in 2018 and Jayson Tatum in 2019. The latter of those three had the best game of his career in a double-overtime win on Thursday and plans to retire from the competition as a back-to-back winner.

Our NBA crew details who they’re betting to win on Saturday night.

Odds as of Friday morning and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.

Wob: Khris Middleton +300

My favorite thing about the skills challenge is that only one skill matters in regards to winning: the three-pointer at the end.

Dribbling through the cone gauntlet, passing the ball through the net obstacle, hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if you have to stop and play Rajon Rondo in Connect Four this year. It doesn’t matter.
