Prop Bet Pick: Zach Edey Over 12 1/2 Rebounds (-126)

It feels like amateur hour taking Zach Edey prop bets in March Madness, but I don’t know what else to tell you about this future NBA big man. Gonzaga had the big guys to match up with Edey, and by the end of the night, the star had another impressive outing.

Edey has been a rebounding machine during the NCAA tournament. The Purdue center averaged 12.1 boards during the regular season but has been more dominant in March Madness.

Edey has had 14 or more rebounds in Purdue’s previous three NCAA tournament matchups. Take the over on Edey’s rebounds at the BetUs sportsbook.

Prop Bet Pick: Dalton Knecht Over 5.5 Rebounds (-189)

Tennessee star Dalton Knecht is known for his long-range shooting, but the guard has been rebounding at an impressive rate. Knecht has had six or more rebounds in all three of the Vols’ NCAA tournament contests.

The standout guard is averaging 7.7 boards in the NCAA tournament.

Tennessee needs Knecht to crash the glass again to have a chance against Purdue. Bet online the over on Knecht’s rebounds versus the Boilermakers.


Prop Bet Pick: Braden Smith Over 1.5 Made Threes (+122)

Braden Smith is one of several standout shooters for Purdue. Smith has made two or more threes in two of Purdue’s three March Madness matchups.

The NCAA odds offer a plus return by taking the over on Smith’s threes. Look to Smith to at least hit two threes to help offset some of Knecht’s baskets.

Prop Bet Pick: Dalton Knecht Over 2.5 Made Threes (-126)

Knecht has been streaky in the NCAA tournament, which should cause concern for the guard’s points prop. Yet, we know Knecht will shoot even if the percentage is less than ideal.

Knecht hit three or more 3-pointers in two of the Vols first three NCAA tournament games. We expect that to become three of the last four after the team’s Elite Eight game versus Purdue. Let’s take the over on Knecht’s made 3-pointers in the NCAA basketball odds.
