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. James Harden vs. 9. Spencer Dinwiddie

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

  • Spread: Harden -5.5
  • Moneyline: Harden -2500, Dinwiddie +1500
  • Over/Under: 17.5

Harden was the 1-seed who went a little under the radar in our pre-tournament brackets, and he looked strong in the first round. He was getting to his stepback 3-pointer 2-pointer at will, which could be a big difference in the tournament and tonight against Dinwiddie.

Will Dinwiddie pull the colossal upset or will The Beard keep rolling?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Dinwiddie +5.5, Harden -2500, Under 17.5
  • Phan: Dinwiddie +5.5, Harden -2500, Over 17.5
  • Moore: Dinwiddie +5.5, Harden -2500, Over 17.5

5. Stephen Curry vs. 13. Jaren Jackson Jr.

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

  • Spread: Curry -2.5
  • Moneyline: Curry -190, JJJ +160
  • Over/Under: 18.5

What a fascinating matchup. Steph, the best shooter in NBA history, will have to really shake off Jackson, who has the length and quickness to follow him all around the floor.

And on the other end, will Steph be able to stop JJJ posting up?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: JJJ +2.5, JJJ +160, Under 18.5
  • Phan: JJJ +2.5, Steph -190, Over 18.5
  • Moore: JJJ +2.5, Steph -190, Over 18.5

11. Nikola Jokic vs. 14. Nikola Vucevic

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

  • Spread: Jokic -2.5
  • Moneyline: Jokic -190, Vucevic +160
  • Over/Under: 18.5

A battle made for NBA Twitter: Nikola vs. Nikola.

Both surprised as double-digit seeds in the first round and will now need to pull out all the stops to keep the Cinderella run going into the Sweet 16.

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Jokic -2.5, Jokic -190, Under 18.5
  • Phan: Jokic -2.5, Jokic -190, Under 18.5
  • Moore: Jokic -2.5, Jokic -190, Under 18.5

2. Joel Embiid vs. 10. Bam Adebayo

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

  • Spread: Embiid -3.5
  • Moneyline: Embiid -360, Adebayo +300
  • Over/Under: 17.5

Another battle of the bigs, 2-seed Embiid will face one of the NBA’s most underrated players in Miami’s Adebayo.

Will Embiid’s strength prove too much for Bam?

Here are our staff’s picks …

  • Wob: Bam +3.5, Embiid -360, Over 17.5
  • Phan: Embiid -3.5, Embiid -360, Under 17.5
  • Moore: Bam +3.5, Embiid -360, Over 17.5
