All Big 3 Basketball Games take place on Friday, June 29, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Big 3 Basketball Week 2 – Friday, June 29
Power +1.5 vs 3’s Company -1.5
After the first half, Power was only up 26 to 24 over Ball Hogs. Then, Power played incredible defense in the second half to power to a 51 to 31 Week 1 victory. The Corey Maggette led squad held Ball Hogs to 7 points in the second stanza. Maggette produced 17 points and 9 boards.
3’s Company dominated Killer 3’s 26 to 7 in the first half of their 51 to 30 win. Killer 3’s got back into the game somewhat in the second half. That doesn’t bode well for 3’s Company in this matchup.
BIG 3 Basketball Betting Pick: Power
Ball Hogs +4.5 vs Tri-State -4.5
We know how badly Ball Hogs played in the second half of their Week 1 loss to Power. Tri-State, just as I suspected, was too much for Trilogy in Week 1. Tri-State had 3 players score in double-figures, Jermaine O’Neal with 12, Nate Robinson with 10, and David Hawkins with 19.
Hawkins added 6 assists and 6 boards. Just the presence of Robinson and Amar’e Stoudemire helped Hawksins and O’Neal get their shots. That won’t change versus Ball Hogs.
BIG 3 Basketball Betting Pick: Tri-State
Ghost Ballers -3.5 vs Killer 3’s +3.5
Ghost Ballers was unlucky to lose. However, 21 points came from Rickey Davis and 15 came from Carlos Boozer. If Ghost Ballers attempts to utilize their inside game again versus the Killer 3’s, they’ll have issues.
Killer 3’s is strong in the paint. Metta World Peace and his bros have a shot to pull off the upset.
BIG 3 Basketball Betting Pick: Killer 3’s
Trilogy vs 3 Headed Monsters
MyBookie hasn’t released odds yet on Trilogy versus 3 Headed Monsters. No worries.
This is an easy game to handicap. Reggie Evans scored 17 and grabbed 13 boards for 3 Headed Monsters. Rashard Lewis had 8 and 5. Mahmoud-Abdul Rauf scored 11 points, Quintel Woods had 10, and Salim Stoudemire had 4.
3 Headed Monsters pretty much got production from every one of their players. I think they beat Trilogy. They also cover whether they’re a favorite or dog.
BIG 3 Basketball Betting Pick: 3 Headed Monsters
