Take a look at Ben Simmons career stats. The 0 under percentage is tough to miss.
But guess what happened in this weeks preseason game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Guangzhou Loong Lions of the Basketball Association?
You bet he made one!
While he did not score that 3-pointer from an NBA team, everyone is talking about Simmons getting a fictitious shot.
And an NJ sports have rolled out betting market centered on Simmons shooting potential.
Final week did Sixers fans receive a glimpse of Ben Simmons 2.0? Or has been last weeks powerful 3-pointer more like a miracle?
Thats the premise behind those DraftKings futures bets:
Keep in mindthe two bets mentioned above just apply to games. Another 20 could be attempted by him through the preseason and also make 10 of them, but none of it counts.
In his two seasons in Philadelphia, the point shield has attempted a total of 17 3.
Those attempts will need to go way up in case Simmons is going to develop into a threat from beyond the arc.
Whether or not he suddenly attempts more than 65 of them in one season. Whats it worth the risk?
If Simmons dramatically increases those injection attempts, making greater than 16.5 three-pointers through an 82-game regular season may be within reach. Right?
Nicely, DraftKings is ready to choose the action.
In fact, once the 76ers open the regular season on??Oct. 23??from the??Milwaukee Bucks, the Simmons betting market is not what everybody will be speaking about. In theory.
The two teams have been favorites and theyre going in the Wells Fargo Center.
On paper, Philadelphia which makes it to the NBA Finals??is currently going to attract betting action.
Here are the latest Eastern Conference futures from DraftKings:
Then there are the NBA championship stocks:
In case the Joel and Sixers Embiid are going to live up to these high expectations, Simmons will once again should play a major function. Even the All-Star??is averaging 16.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.9 assists for his career.
In reality, shooting, bettors and maybe and the absence thereof, will come as an added incentive to his group.
