BIG3 preview, Trilogy vs. Power prediction, streaming, how to watch: Expert gives 2022 championship game picks

After nine weeks of competitive action on CBS and Paramount+, the 2022 BIG3 Championship Game is here. Trilogy (6-2) defeated the Aliens in the semifinals 50-45 behind Isaiah Briscoe’s 21 points, earning their third appearance in a title game in five seasons. Power (5-3) had a narrow two-point win over the 3 Headed Monsters last week and has four straight games on Sunday. However, Trilogy is enjoying a five-game winning streak and the 2022 BIG3 championship game will be the opportunity for the squad to become the league’s first consecutive champion.

The 2022 BIG3 Championship begins at 3:30 p.m. ET in Atlanta. These teams did not face each other during the regular season, but each is entering a healthy winning streak, with Power winning four straight wins while Trilogy winning five straight. Caesars Sportsbook lists Trilogy as a 2.5 point favorite in the latest BIG3 odds, with an over-under of 94.5.

BIG3 picks for Sunday 21st August

Before you get ready for Sunday’s BIG3 action, you need to check out 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 helping bettors find advantages.

For Sunday’s BIG3 action, Tyree is backing Trilogy to win his second straight championship and third in five seasons. Only five teams finished with a positive point difference, and two of them are in this game. But Trilogy have topped all clubs by a plus 45 point margin this season and they’ve taken their game to a new level in recent competitions.

Trilogy is plus 59 points apart over the last five games, while Power is plus 26 over the same stretch. While Power has the front-runner for the 2022 BIG3 Rookie of the Year award, Glen Rice Jr., Trilogy counters with one of the MVP favorites in Briscoe. He’s second in scoring, fourth in assists and had seven crucial points in winning Trilogy’s championship game last year.

Most championship games boil down to defense and Trilogy comes out on top in that department as well. It ranks second in both steals and blocks, while Power sits outside the top 3 in both stats. Tyree says Trilogy is likely to be repeated given her recent play, vast gaming experience, and two-way play. Stream the matchup right here.
