3 Early College Basketball Player Props for Tuesday, March 12

Let the Madness begin! We're fresh off a nice 2-0 sweep last night and ready to keep stacking some cash. Graham Ike of Gonzaga gave us one of our easiest winners of the season by only grabbing 4 rebounds (we played U8.5). Augustas Marciulionis gave us a scare, but he also stayed under his point total for St. Mary's.

It's always a beautiful thing to see college basketball on TV all day long. Because of that, we're going to submit an early and a late card for today. Check out our early player props for Tuesday, March 12 here. Best of luck, folks!

Antrell Charlton (Fordham) Under 8.5 Points (-125) (Bet365)

There's nothing like sweating out a player prop bet before noon on a Tuesday! This Davidson vs. Fordham game is a 11:30 Eastern Time tip, so get those wagers in as soon as possible if you're tailing. Charlton isn't a bad player, but his median point total is just 5 this season, which gives us a huge edge on the Under.

Charlton can be kind of a boom or bust guy for Fordham, but he's still scored 8 points or less in 19 of his 31 ball games this year. The Live Oak, Florida native has also stayed Under this point total in 7 of his last 11 outings. Charlton's running mate, Kyle Rose, has been taking the majority of the shots of late as well.

We also get a favorable matchup for our Under, as Charlton will face a very good Davidson defense. The Wildcats rank 62nd in points allowed this season. That's a big reason why Charlton only scored a combined 6 points in two regular season meetings against Davidson.

Brandon Garrison (Oklahoma St.) Under 7.5 Points (+100) (DraftKings)

Holy matchup advantage, Batman! We're getting an even money Under on a guy that'll be facing one of the best defenses in the country in UCF. The Knights rank an impressive 24th in opponent shooting percentage and 26th at defending two-point shots.

Garrison is a big dude, but he'll be going up against one of the best shot-blockers in the nation in Ibrahima Diallo (7-foot, 246 pounds). Diallo held Garrison to just 4 points just a couple of weeks ago on February 28th. The ever-so-important median also favors an Under, as Garrison's median point total is just 6 this season.

The 6'11" center has also stayed under this total in 18 of his 31 games during the '23-24 campaign. The Under has also cashed in 8 of Garrison's 13 road/neutral games. This point total is low for a reason, so let's ride the Under wave!

Naithan George (Georgia Tech) Under 9.5 Points (-105) (DraftKings)

I know y'all are just dying for me to take an Over, but it ain't happening with this early card. George's point total median is just 8.5 this season. I normally like to have a 1.5-point difference between the median and the posted total, but I'll make an exception in this case, mainly because of the insanely tough Notre Dame defense.

Just how good are the Fighting Irish on the defensive end? They rank 38th in defensive efficiency and 29th in points allowed. They may be a terrible offensive squad, but they always bring lots of effort when it's time to D-Up their opponent.

All of that means is that George could have a hard time scoring in this early afternoon tilt on the ACC Network. The 6'3" guard has scored 9 points or fewer in 17 of 28 games this season. He's also stayed Under in 6 of his last 8 contests.
