The 2022 BIG3 season begins on Saturday as the 3-on-3 league tips off its fifth season under founder Ice Cube. Trilogy is the defending champion and the BIG3 Week 1 schedule will face the 2019 champion, Triplets, led by two-time MVP Joe Johnson. The other two Saturday games will see Bivouac vs. 3's Company and the 3 Headed Monsters vs. Ghost Ballers.

Saturday's action will tip off at 3 p.m. ET Credit Union 1 Arena in Chicago. You can watch the action on CBS, and you can also stream it live on Paramount+ with their MUST-HAVE Premium plan.

Before you lock in BIG3 picks for Saturday, you MUST see what basketball insider Ameer Tyree has to say. 

Tyree joins 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. Now, Tyree has taken a close look at the matchups on tap and has made his selections for the top three games of the weekend. You NEED to see his picks before making any selections of your own. And don't forget to stream NOW on Paramount+!

Tyree is backing the 3 Headed Monsters to secure the victory over the Ghost Ballers. Their sturdy core has already made a playoff appearance in every Big3 season and the 3 Header Monsters should edge out a Ghost Ballers side that missed the playoffs last year and hasn't gotten notably better on paper.

He's also locked in picks for the other two matchups, and he's backing a surprising team that "seems poised to bounce back" from a disappointing 2021 campaign.
