BIG3 Picks Sunday, August 14th

Before watching Sunday’s BIG3 action, you need to watch the BIG3 basketball picks from SportsLine expert Ameer Tyree. Tyree joined SportsLine after working as a sports and betting specialist at DraftKings. There is also an informative history of his playing basketball to help bettors find an edge.

In Sunday’s BIG3 action, Tyree helps Trilogy to take on Aliens in a game listed as a pick by Caesars.

After opening the season 2-2, the Trilogy closed out the regular season with four straight wins to secure the top seed in the 2022 BIG3 playoff picture. Coach Stephen Jackson’s team is doing well. The trilogy averaged a 16.3-point winning percentage in his final three weeks of the regular season. That run stood out as he dominated the killer 3 50-28 and dropped out of the playoffs.

The Trilogy are now one win away from winning the BIG3 title for the third time in team history. No other team has won more than one.

Tyree believes this trilogy has a clear edge. Besides being a team with BIG3 playoff experience, this roster has his 24 years of NBA experience. Alien, on the other hand, lacks his NBA experience and relies on his 3×3 circuit veteran at FIBA.

“I like the odds on the trilogy coming up in two straight championship games because the Alien 3-on-3 specialist team looks like they’re at a disadvantage,” Tyree told SportsLine. Stream the match here.
