Villanova vs. Kansas

Jermaine Samuels Underneath 7.5 Rebounds (+105 at BetMGM): The truth Samuels has long gone about 7.5 rebounds in 7 of his past eight games will make this a frightening proposition, but there is a couple explanations to believe he will stay underneath this quantity on Saturday.

Next, with Justin Moore out, Eric Dixon is predicted to see much more minutes and is therefore most likely to eat into Samuels’ rebounding prospects — and there already could be less rebounding prospects based mostly on the matchup by itself. Kansas ranks in the top 40 of offensive rebounding fee and 29th in helpful FG percentage while leaning greatly on 2-position tries heavily, which lowers the workforce rebound projection for Villanova.

Our predictive analytics team is projecting Samuels nearer to 6.5 boards with a 61 p.c probability of keeping underneath.

Collin Gillespie Less than 3.5 Assists (+125 at BetMGM): The final time I targeted the under on Gillespie’s assists, he went over 3.5 only since he dished out the two he required to clear the line in the remaining minute against Ohio Point out. Certain sufficient, he’s experienced only two just about every in the two rounds since.

Now with Moore out, I assume Gillespie to consider more photographs, which would aid this prop.

Our design is projecting Gillespie closer to three helps with a 60 percent probability of remaining under 3.5, so the rate is suitable at furthermore-income.

Duke vs. North Carolina

Most Points: Armando Bacot (+550 at FanDuel): Paolo Banchero is the rightful beloved at +320 with Brady Manek subsequent at +490, but our predictive analytics group is projecting Armando Bacot for shut to the identical number of factors as the other two, producing him a wonderful benefit at +550.

Duke’s defensive philosophy is to restrict 3-pointers and absolutely free throws, allowing for opponents to rating 58 % of their factors on 2-position photographs — the 10th-optimum fee in state. And that is in which Bacot thrives. In fact, he matched Banchero for the most details the previous time these rivals met on March 5, scoring his 23 details on 10-of-11 capturing from inside of.

Mark Williams Underneath 9.5 Rebounds (-115 at BetMGM): When Williams will see a good deal of minutes — we’re projecting him for 32.5 on Saturday — our model is projecting him for only 8.5 rebounds based on the matchup.

North Carolina is a incredibly excellent rebounding workforce (thanks to Bacot), ranking 2nd in defensive rebounding rate, so Williams could see fewer offensive boards in this article.

We’re supplying him a 62 per cent prospect of staying beneath this number.
