NBA All-Star Weekend takes place in Charlotte from Feb. 15-17, and one of the highlights of the weekend is the Mountain Dew 3-Point Contest, set for Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
In an era dominated by the trey, the contest is not short of elite entrants, including Steph Curry, Damian Lillard and defending champion Devin Booker. However, before you make your 3-Point Contest picks, you'll want to see what streaking NBA expert Mike Barner has to say. He's on an amazing 28-10 run with his recent NBA picks.
A respected NBA Fantasy expert, both season-long and daily, Barner's work has appeared in Sports Illustrated and on Yahoo, RotoWire and KFFL. He's also been featured on ESPN Radio. Barner digs deep into the data, examining team trends and projecting game outcomes.
Barner's expertise has been on full display lately: Over his last 38 picks, Barner has cashed at a massive 74 percent win rate that's returned nearly $1,700 to $100 players. That payout doesn't include the 6-1 parlay he nailed by hitting all three of his best bets for Monday.
Now he has analyzed the 3-Point Contest lineup from all angles and is delivering his picks for SportsLine. We can tell you that Barner is not going with Lillard, who is barely shooting over 30 percent from 3-point territory in his last 13 games overall entering this shootout.
Instead, Barner is revealing an intangible x-factor that you aren't considering for the 3-Point Shootout. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any picks of your own.
So who wins the 3-Point Contest at NBA All-Star Weekend? And what hidden X-factor makes one player a must-back? ... Join SportsLine right now to get Saturday's NBA 3-point Contest pick, all from the SportsLine expert on a massive 28-10 NBA run!
