3 College Basketball Player Props for Saturday, March 23

The bookmakers are being kind to us, as they've already hung college hoops player props numbers for some the Round 2 games on Saturday. One of the more intriguing matchups will be Michigan State vs. North Carolina, a game we'll have a prop pick on. Other games of interest include Dayton vs. Arizona and Texas vs. Tennessee.

Need help putting the final touches on your Saturday betting card? Check out our college basketball player props selections below. Thanks for reading and enjoy the action!

Kobe Elvis (Dayton) Under 9.5 Points (-120) (FanDuel)

If FanDuel wants to put up some early prop numbers, we'll gladly throw some business their way. Elvis is a pretty good role player for the Flyers, but most of their offense revolves around DaRon Holmes. Elvis usually only gets around 8 field goal attempts per game, so he'd have to shoot at a very high percentage to get into double figures.

For the season, Elvis has a median of 8 and he's stayed under this 9.5 number in 18 of his 32 ball games. Current form also helps us in this case, as the Under is 7-3 in Elvis's last 10 outings. The 6'2", 170-pounder has stayed under in 10 of his 17 road/neutral games.

A lot of folks gripe about Arizona's defense, but they actually aren't too bad on that side of the court. The Wildcats rank a respectable 41st in defensive efficiency. Give me the Under to start off our weekend.

RJ Davis (UNC) Over 19.5 Points (-115) (FanDuel)

I get that Tom Izzo is a great coach and that Sparty has a stingy defense. Heck, they helped us cash an Under prop on Thursday against Mississippi State. Even still, this number is at least a bucket too low!

Armando Bacot may get most of the hype, and deservedly so, but Davis is the purest scorer on this Tar Heels squad. The 6-foot guard has a median point total of 22 and he's gone over this total in 22 of his 34 contests this season. The Over is also 11-9 in Davis's 20 games away from home.

Davis has been shooting the lights out lately, as he's scored 22 or more points in 3 straight games. He's also been shooting well from beyond the arc, and it doesn't hurt that the Spartans rank just 91st in three-point defense. Give me a rare Over with a star player!

Chendall Weaver (Texas) Under 7.5 Points (+110) (DraftKings)

DraftKings is giving plus money on the Under with a player that only averages a tad bit over 18 minutes per game. Sign us up! Weaver scored 11 points against Colorado State on Thursday, but I don't see him doing too much against this stout Vols defense.

Just how good is Tennessee's defense? They rank 7th in defensive efficiency and 3rd in opponent shooting percentage. As you can see from those 2 metrics, this will be a tough matchup for the Longhorns on the offensive end of the floor.

Weaver's point median is just 5 and he's stayed Under this total in 22 of his 33 games this season. The 6'3" guard normally only gets about 4 shots per game and he only shoots 22.9% from downtown. Let's ride the Under to finish off the Saturday props card.
