3 College Basketball Player Props for Monday, February 26

Our college basketball player props went 1-2 last Friday, but still finished the week with an overall record of 7-5. Two Fordham players kept us from having a fabulous Friday, as we lost both of our wagers on Kyle Rose and Will Richardson. Our lone winner was on Kenan Blackshear of Nevada, who easily stayed under his point total.

So far this season, we're a very respectable 21-16 with our CBB player props. Let's keep the money train rolling with 3 more plays for Monday, February 26. Good luck, sports betting family!

Norchad Omier (Miami) Over 8.5 Rebounds (-120 at DraftKings)

Oh yes, let's go back to old reliable for our first play for Monday. In case you haven't been riding with us, we've cashed an Omier rebounding prop in back-to-back weeks. As Billy Chappell (Kevin Costner) said in "For Love of the Game", "ride her 'til she bucks you or don't ride at all."

Omier is a big, physical post player for Miami, and he has a nose for always being around the basketball. Because of that, there are several trends that support him going over this total. Check them out below:

  • Omier has grabbed 9 or more rebounds in 16 of his 27 ball games this season.
  • Omier has also gone over this rebounding total in 8 of his last 11 outings.
  • He came down with 11 rebounds against North Carolina just a couple of weeks ago on February 10th.

According to our numbers, the books should have lined this at 9.5 instead of 8.5. Omier's median rebounding number for the 2023-24 campaign is 10. That's more than enough value for us to pull the trigger on Omier's Over for the third week in a row!

Harrison Ingram (UNC) Under 10.5 Rebounds (-120 at Bet365)

Let's jump on another rebounding prop in the same game. Ingram has elite size for a forward at 6-8 and 230 pounds, so this Under is a little bit scary. Keep in mind though, that Ingram will be competing with Omier (above) for rebounds, as well as his fellow teammate Armando Bacot.

Ingram has been able to have some nice performances on this glass for the Tar Heels this season, but the overall metrics still favor the Under. Check out some of these supporting trends.

  • Ingram has grabbed 10 rebounds or fewer in 18 of his 27 games this season.
  • His median rebounding number is 9 so far in '23-24.
  • He only grabbed 5 rebounds against Miami on February 10th.

As good as Ingram has been at crashing the boards here lately, he's still stayed Under this total in 3 of his last 5 games. We think that FanDuel made a much more accurate number on this one at 9.5 instead of 10.5. Let's hold our breath and play the Under.

Jalen Bridges (Baylor) Under 6.5 Rebounds (+100 at DraftKings)

Why is DraftKings giving us plus money on this one? Most online sportsbooks have this Under priced in the -115 to -118 range. If this is a trap, I guess I'm jumping right square into it!

Bridges is a serviceable forward for the Bears, but he's not exactly an elite rebounder. The West Virginia transfer is only averaging 5.1 total rebounds per game this season. Here are some other key trends that support an Under in this spot.

  • Bridges has stayed Under this rebounding total in 20 of 27 games this season.
  • He's came down with 6 rebounds or fewer in 8 of his last 11.
  • His median rebounding number is just 5.

We also think that this will be a tough matchup for Bridges and his Baylor mates tonight against TCU. The Horned Frogs need a big home win, and their crowd will be rocking! TCU also ranks 65th in overall rebounding while Baylor ranks just 189th. Let's fire on another Under!
