BIG3 Championship preview, rosters, schedule, live stream, how to watch: Sept. 4 picks from basketball expert

The 2021 BIG3 Championship Game takes place on Saturday, wrapping up the 3-on-3 league’s 10-week season. Trilogy will be looking to become the league’s first two-time champion after the squad won in 2017. Trilogy knocked off Tri-State in the BIG3 semifinals last week, while the 3 Headed Monsters defeated Triplets to advance to the title game. You can catch all the action live on CBS and Paramount+.

Trilogy (6-3) is led by 13-year NBA guard Jarrett Jack, who just joined the Phoenix Suns as an assistant coach. The 3 Headed Monsters (7-2) feature two-time NBA All-Star Rashard Lewis and are coached by Hall of Famer Gary Payton. The 2021 Big3 Championship Game will take place from Imperial Arena in the Bahamas. The action begins at 3:30 p.m. ET and you stream the games live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

BIG3 predictions, picks for Saturday, September 4

Before you tune in to Saturday’s BIG3 action, you need to see the BIG3 basketball picks from SportsLine expert Ameer Tyree. He joined SportsLine after working as an NBA Fantasy sports and betting specialist at DraftKings and has a history of profitable basketball plays that help bettors find edges.

For Saturday’s BIG3 action, Tyree is backing the 3 Headed Monsters to win the 2021 BIG3 Championship. Already possessing one of the league’s best offenses, the 3 Headed Monsters have turned up their efforts on the defensive end over the second half of the season. They’ve allowed just 40.8 points per game over their last four after allowing nearly 47 points per game through their first five contests.

Lewis and Reggie Evans, who was one of the NBA’s best rebounders during his 13-year career, form a formidable front line that Trilogy simply can’t match. Both players are among the league leaders in both points and rebounds, while Trilogy can only counter with Jack. The lack of a consistent second option for Trilogy will be their downfall, as the 3 Headed Monsters will depart the Bahamas as champions.

“The 3 Headed Monsters have more options with two top-five scorers and two top-five rebounders on their roster,” Tyree told SportsLine. “[An Isaiah] Briscoe breakout game seems unlikely, so I’m rolling with the 3 Headed Monsters. They’ve rattled off four straight wins and two of them were double-digit victories.”
