Trae Young, Chris Paul favorites in H-O-R-S-E tournament
Basketball will be back Sunday night. Sort of.
Thunder guard Chris Paul, Hawks guard Trae Young and six more current and former NBA and WNBA players will compete in a H-O-R-S-E Tournament that tips-off at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
Young is a 2-to-1 favorite to win the event, according to odds from BetOnline. Paul is just behind Young with 5-to-2 odds.
Young is a 1-to-2 favorite in his first-round matchup against former Pistons and Nuggets All-Star Chauncey Billups.
Paul is a 1-to-3 favorite against Chicago Sky guard Allie Quigley, a three-time All-Star. Quigley shot 44.2 percent from 3-point range last year and won back-to-back WNBA 3-point contests in 2017 and 2018.
