Best March Madness prop bets for Saturday’s NCAA Tournament Second Round

Just because the Round of 64 is complete, doesn’t mean we’re taking a break.

We move right into Round of 32 action on Saturday, and just like the last two days, I have three player props for you to bet on.

Let’s dive into them.

March Madness Round of 32 player props

  • Tyrese Proctor UNDER 9.5 points (-140)
  • Tosan Evbuomwan OVER 6.5 rebounds (-120)
  • Boo Buie UNDER 17.5 points (-105)

Tyrese Proctor UNDER 9.5 points (-140)

Say what you want about Tennessee, but the Volunteers can play defense. Specifically, they can defend the three ball better than any other team in the nation. They rank first in opponent 3-point field goal percentage, keeping teams to shooting just 26.4% from beyond the arc.

That’s bad news for a guy like Tyrese Proctor, who relies on the 3-point shot for a big part of his game. If Tennessee can limit him at the arc, which I expect them to be able to, Proctor will have a tough time going over his point total. I’ll take the UNDER 9.5 points for Proctor on Saturday.

Tosan Evbuomwan OVER 6.5 rebounds (-120)

If Princeton wants any hope of pulling off a second straight improbable upset and keeping its Cinderella run alive, the boys from the Ivy League need to dominate the glass.

In what’s good news for them, Missouri is one of the worst rebounding teams in the country, and that’s not an exaggeration. The Tigers rank 359th, out of 363rd, in rebounding rate, grabbing just 44.8% of available boards.

That sets up Princeton forward, Tosan Evbuomwan, to have a big game. He leads Princeton with 6.2 rebounds per game, and I expect him to thrive in this area against Missouri.

Boo Buie UNDER 17.5 points (-105)

I don’t care what people say, I firmly believe Northwestern is a bad shooting team that’s going to get exposed against UCLA on Saturday.

The Bruins have a stout defense, ranking 24th in opponent effective field goal percentage.

Boo Buie is averaging 17.3 points per game this really. Do you think he can go over his season average point total against one of the best defenses the Wildcats have faced this season? I certainly don’t think so.

Give me the UNDER on his point total.
