Take a look in Ben Simmons career stats. The 0 beneath percentage is difficult to overlook.
But guess what happened in the Guangzhou Loong Lions of the Basketball Association and this weeks preseason game between the Philadelphia 76ers?
You bet he made one!
While he did not score that everyone is suddenly talking getting a fictitious 3-point shooter.
And DraftKings Sportsbook has rolled out an NJ sports betting market based on Simmons 3-point shooting potential.
Did Sixers fans get a glimpse of Ben Simmons week? Or has been last weeks successful 3-pointer more such as a one-hit miracle?
That is the premise behind these DraftKings futures bets:
Keep in mindthe two possible bets mentioned previously only apply to games. He could try another 20 through the preseason and make 10 of them, however none of it counts.
In his two seasons in Philadelphia, the point shield has attempted a total of 17 3s.
Apparently, those attempts will need to go far up if Simmons is going to turn into a threat from beyond the arc.
Whether he unexpectedly attempts over 65 of these in a season remains to be viewed. Whats it worth the risk?
If Simmons dramatically increases those shot attempts, making greater than 16.5 three-pointers through an 82-game regular season could be in reach. Right?
Well, DraftKings is ready to select the action.
In reality, once the 76ers open the regular season on??Oct. 23??against the??Milwaukee Bucks, the Simmons betting market is not what everyone will be speaking about. In concept.
The two teams are favorites to win the Eastern Conference, and theyre going head to head at the Wells Fargo Center.
On newspaper, Philadelphia which makes it is currently going to attract more betting action.
Here are the Eastern Seminar futures from DraftKings:
Then there would be the NBA championship stocks:
Simmons will once more should play a part, 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.
So in fact, shooting, bettors and possibly or even the lack thereof, could come as an extra bonus to his team.
