Jacob Toppin Rebounds

By Doug Ziefel

In this battle of the Wildcats, one group of cats will have a significant advantage on the glass. Kentucky is one of the top rebounding teams in the country, as it’s second in offensive rebounding rate and 54th in defensive rebounding rate.

While much of that is due to the work of Oscar Tshiebwe, Jacob Toppin has become his partner in crime in the rebounding department.

Toppin has gone over this total in 16 of 32 games this season.

The bigger picture gives us coin-flip implied odds, but the improvement we've seen more recently makes this juice worth the squeeze.

Over his last 10 games, he has exceeded this number six times, and in four of those games, he hauled in double-digit rebounds.

Given that Kansas State will be focused on Tshiebwe, we should see Toppin significantly impact the glass once again.

Pick: Jacob Toppin Over 6.5 Rebounds (-135) · Play to 7.5

Ryan Kalkbrenner Points

By Alex Hinton

Ryan Kalkbrenner began the NCAA tournament with a bang, scoring 31 points in Creighton’s opening-round win over NC State.

It was a continuation of strong play for him as he has scored in double digits in 10 consecutive games. In that span, he is averaging 17.5 points per game.

After being under this line in four consecutive games, the Creighton big man has gone over in five of his past six games. He scored 16 in the other.

In this matchup, Kalkbrenner may just be the difference. Baylor has the better guards in this game, but it can be attacked down low. Baylor is 315th nationally in 2-point percentage defense.

Kalkbrenner is making 74.4% of his 2-point attempts. He can also step outside and knock down the occasional 3.

Against Baylor, he may focus on imposing his will inside. Either way, I like his chances of scoring 17 points.

Pick: Ryan Kalkbrenner Over 16.5 Points (-104) · Play to 17.5

Trayce Jackson-Davis Points

By Alex Hinton

Kalkbrenner is not the only big man who could be in a big night. Indiana’s Trayce Jackson-Davis has scored on a constant basis all season. The senior forward is averaging 20.9 points per game and is shooting 57.8% from the field.

He is averaging 23.1 points per game over his last 10 games. He has gone over this line in eight of those games.

On Sunday night, he will face a Miami defense that ranks 255th in 2-point percentage defense.

Additionally, Miami forward Norchad Omier is playing through an ankle injury. He did gut out 36 minutes on Thursday. However, if his ankle flares up again or he gets in foul trouble, Miami will really struggle to stop Jackson-Davis.

Against Indiana, Omier being in foul trouble is a possibility, as Jackson-Davis gets to the free-throw line 6.4 times per game and 7.2 over his last 10 games. He is also averaging 15.5 field goal attempts per game.

He should have the volume to get over this line.

FanDuel has the best number for this line at 22.5 points. However, he has 24 points in seven of his 10 games, as well, if you have to play over 23.5 on DraftKings.

Pick: Trayce Jackson-Davis Over 22.5  Points (-113) · Play to 23.5
