The BIG3 season has already provided plenty of excitement, with former NBA players like Cuttino Mobley, Nate Robinson, Jarrett Jack and Jason Richardson all proving they can still get buckets in their post-NBA careers. On Saturday, Week 7 of the eight-week BIG3 schedule will begin. With the playoffs bearing down, the stakes are getting higher. There are still eight teams within reasonable contention of making the postseason, and four of them will be in action live on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.

Saturday's slate will be played at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas and will lead off with the Killer 3's vs. Tri-State, two 4-2 teams with their sights set clearly on postseason play. Then, it will be the Power (3-3) against the Trilogy (4-2) in another game with potential playoff implications. You can watch these BIG3 basketball games on CBS starting at 1 p.m. ET and stream them live on Paramount+ with the must-have Premium plan.

BIG3 predictions, picks for Saturday, August 14

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 Killer 3's to stay hot and pick up a win over Tri-State that will inch them another step closer to the 2021 BIG3 Playoffs. Former Kings forward Donte Greene has put himself into the MVP conversation in recent weeks after scoring 23 points and snatching seven rebounds in a win last week over the first-place Triplets.

Greene also had 33 points and eight rebounds in a blowout win over Bivouac the week prior and is now averaging 22.0 points and 8.0 rebounds. Meanwhile, the Killer 3's have also gotten solid contributions up and down the rest of the roster, with Mo Charlo, C.J. Watson, Franklin Sessions and Josh Powell proving to be one of the most well-rounded groups in the league.

"Franklin Session has a league-high 20 assists on the year and sits atop the steals rankings. His teammate, C.J. Watson, is second in steals," Tyree told SportsLine. "The duo should make perimeter scoring challenging, so I like the Killer 3's to win a third straight game."
