BIG3 predictions, picks for Saturday, June 18

Before you tune in to Saturday’s BIG3 action, you need to see SportsLine expert Ameer Tyree’s BIG3 basketball picks. Tyree joined SportsLine after working as an NBA Fantasy Sports and Betting Specialist at DraftKings and has a history of profitable basketball games that help bettors find an edge.

For Saturday’s BIG3 action, Tyree supports all 3 Headed Monsters to secure victory over the Ghost Ballers. Last year, the 3 Headed Monsters tied for the best BIG3 record at 6-2 and qualified for the championship game, only to fall to Trilogy. Meanwhile, the Ghost Ballers started the season 4-1 before losing their final three games of the year and missing the playoffs. The Ghost Ballers’ average losing margin during their three-game losing streak was 21 points.

The Ghost Ballers are one of the league’s inaugural eight teams, but they have never had a winning season in franchise history. Last year, the team allowed 365 points, which was the third most in the league, and the team made no noticeable improvement to their roster as they fired all three of their starters from the unit. of last season. Rashard Lewis of the 3 Headed Monsters is expected to exploit the Ghost Ballers both in the paint and from outside the arc, as the latter has no one to rival the two-time NBA All-Star.

Additionally, the 3 Headed Monsters drafted former Utah Jazz swingman Kevin Murphy seventh overall in 2021 and he ended up winning the league’s Rookie of the Year award. Murphy ranked fourth in the BIG3 with 20.4 PPG and he knocked down four 4-pointers, which was second in the league. The 3-headed monsters just have too much firepower, so Tyree is confidently supporting them in Week 1.
