BIG3 predictions, picks for Saturday, August 19

Before tuning into Sunday's BIG3 action, you must see BIG3 basketball projections from CBS Sports analyst Ameer Tyree. Tyree has covered NBA basketball and the BIG3 full-time since 2021 and has plenty of insight on what bettors should put their money on this Saturday. 

Tyree is backing Trilogy to top the Enemies in the first pairing of the weekend. Last year's champs are a perfect 6-0 in the postseason and have thrived without Isaiah Briscoe as of late. Ryan Clark, also known as "Hezi God," has been a sparkplug in Briscoe's stead and racked up a team-high 23 points in Trilogy's final regular season game. He's helped power his team to two straight double-digit victories. The Enemies, on the other hand, have never made the BIG3 playoffs until this season.

Tyree is also backing the Triplets against the Ghost Ballers. Joe Johnson will man the offense for the top seed and is still one of the BIG3's premier scorers. He ranks fourth in points per game (19.0) and second in rebounds per game (8.8) this season. Only Trilogy's Ryan Carter has scored more points since Week 3. The Ghost Ballers are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2017 and still haven't secured a postseason win. The battle-tested Triplets have a clear edge here. Stream the BIG3 games on Saturday here
