The casual NBA fan might not know his name yet, but Duncan Robinson has been shooting the lights out for the Miami Heat. With 191 3-pointers made this season, Robinson has hit the fourth-most shots from beyond the arc.

That torrid start to the year has helped the rookie earn a spot in this weekend's 3-Point Shootout at NBA All-Star Weekend. Despite being the only first-year player in the lineup, Robinson (+460) has the third-best odds to win, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Interestingly, Robinson is one of just three players who is top 10 in made 3-pointers and played fewer than 1,600 minutes this season. His 43.8 3-point percentage is also the best mark among all players in the top 10.

All of this makes Robinson an interesting candidate to win, though he'll likely face some stiff competition from reigning champion Joe Harris (+350) and Trae Young, who has the second-best odds at +390.

Devin Booker, who won this contest in 2018, will also surely make his presence felt, and he's tied with Davis Bertans for the fourth-best odds at +500.

He's got an uphill battle, but if Robinson can shoot like he has over the first half of the season, he absolutely has a chance to win this competition come Saturday.
