Tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET, The Action Network’s King of the Hill 1-on-1 NBA tournament will continue with four games. We’ll be airing the games back-to-back-to-back-to-back live on our Twitter handle and our Twitch stream.

If you missed the action thus far, here are the previous streams and results.

Tonight’s games are listed below, along with how our NBA experts are projecting them to go. Good luck!

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. 8. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

8:30 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ & Twitch

  • Spread: Giannis -5.5
  • Moneyline: Giannis -3500, SGA +2000
  • Over/Under: 17.5

SGA is one of the longer guards in the NBA, but Giannis is in an entirely different universe as near 7-foot unstoppable wing.

Giannis’ length will likely prove too much, which is why he’s listed as a large 5.5-point favorite. Is that too many points or will he cover?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Phan: Giannis -5.5, Giannis -3500, Under 17.5
  • Moore: Giannis -5.5, Giannis -3500, Under 17.5

4. Karl-Anthony Towns vs. 5. Zion Williamson

8:30 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ & Twitch

  • Spread: Towns -2.5
  • Moneyline: Towns -170, Zion +150
  • Over/Under: 18.5

Perhaps the matchup of the tournament so far, two of the league’s best big men will face off in the Giannis region’s 4-5 matchup.

Towns has the height and wisdom of more years in the league, but Zion would give even Greek gods problems with his athleticism.

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Phan: KAT -2.5, KAT -170, Under 18.5
  • Moore: KAT -2.5, KAT -170, Under 18.5

3. Ben Simmons vs. 6. Brandon Ingram

8:30 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ & Twitch

  • Spread: Simmons -2.5
  • Moneyline: Simmons -190, Ingram +160
  • Over/Under: 18.5

Simmons vs. Ingram is one of the more popular debates in the NBA Twitter world, and we’ll see them go head-to-head in virtual land tonight.

Will Simmons continue to absolutely bully his way to the rim and lock down players on the others side? Or will Ingram’s length and craft give him a leg up?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Phan: Simmons -2.5, Simmons -190, Under 18.5
  • Moore: Simmons -2.5, Simmons -190, Over 18.5

2. Anthony Davis vs. 10. Khris Middleton

8:30 p.m. ET | Watch @ActionNetworkHQ & Twitch

  • Spread: Davis -4.5
  • Moneyline: Davis -800, Middleton +500
  • Over/Under: 17.5

Middleton was able to upset 7-seed Chris Paul in the first round, but he’ll have his work cut out for him in Round 2 against Anthony Davis, who might be the most underrated player in the tournament.

Will Middleton make this a game or will AD roll?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Phan: Middleton +5.5, AD -800, Over 17.5
  • Moore: AD -5.5, AD -800, Under 17.5
