Following a chaotic Week 6 in the BIG3, there are seven teams tied for first place atop the standings. There are three matchups featuring first-place teams during Saturday's Week 7 schedule, which features five games following the elimination of two teams last week. Triplets and Power were the lone one-loss teams in the league, but they lost in back-to-back games. They will both be looking to bounce back in Charlotte this weekend. You can stream Saturday's action live on Paramount+.

The five-game slate will begin at 1 p.m. ET from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte. Another anticipated matchup will see reigning champion Trilogy face Ghost Ballers in the second game of the day.

BIG3 predictions, picks for Saturday, August 5

Before tuning into Saturday's BIG3 action, you need to see the BIG3 basketball picks from SportsLine expert Brad Rowland. Rowland has covered the basketball world full-time since 2012, beginning with coverage of the Atlanta Hawks for various outlets. He has bylines for several national outlets and has been credentialed to the NBA Finals, Final Four and FIBA World Cup. He is also the host of the Locked on Hawks podcast and has been on the SportsLine staff since 2019.

For Saturday's BIG3 action, Rowland is backing Tri-State (2-4) to prevail over Bivouac (2-4). Tri-State is coming off a loss to previously winless Aliens, but Jason Richardson was not in the lineup. The team finished with just one assist without him, so that game was an outlier for them this season.

Bivouac's Garlon and Gerald Green combined to shoot 12 of 39 from the floor and 2 of 12 from 3-point range in a loss to Ball Hogs. Tri-State and Bivouac might have the same record this season, but Tri-State's point differential (-5) is much more respectable than Bivouac's (-44). Rowland expects the better team to get the job done in Saturday's nightcap. Stream the BIG3 games on Saturday here
