Saturday's college basketball slate is a busy one, and there's some player props that I think present a different opportunity to find some profit.
Let's take a look at three player props I'll be playing on Saturday at PrizePicks.
Sasser leads Houston in points, averaging 16.6 per game. He's also averaged 3.4 rebounds and three assists per game this season.
Over the last five games, he's averaged 23 combined points, rebounds and assists.
I think this is a number he can easily achieve against a Kent State team that has struggled, specifically when it comes to rebounding.
The Cal Golden Bears haven't won many games, but that's not for a lack of trying on Askew's part.
So far this season, he's averaged 16.5 points, four rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
I expect Clemson to focus on stopping the Golden Bears' best player first and foremost, which should open up the opportunity for him to rack up assists.
Askew has had over 3.5 assists in three of the last four games, and I think he does it again here against the Tigers.
Iowa has an elite defense — it's held opponents to an effective field goal percentage of 44.5%. The Hawkeyes are great when it comes to creating turnovers, and they hold opponents to just 43% on 2-point shots (where TCU gets 55% of it's scoring).
But this is an overreaction to how good that Iowa defense is.
Mike Miles is averaging 21.3 points per game. In the last two games, he's had 23 and 26 points. 16.5 is low even against a strong Iowa defense.
I can see Miles going off for at least 20 and stepping up when his team needs him most in the championship of the Emerald Coast Classic.
