College Hoops Player Props Betting Guide Friday, March 15

Yesterday was just one of those magical days where it all came together. We're fresh off a perfect 3-0 sweep and ready to rock and roll with more college hoops player props! Malik Hall, J'Wan Roberts, and Jaedon LeDee all got us to pay window last night and it felt wonderful.

As fun as the sweep was, there is no time to celebrate. This is a "What have you done for me lately" business, so we're only as good as our last play. Check out our college hoops betting guide for Friday, March 15. Good luck, sports betting family!

Kasean Pryor (USF) Under 13.5 Points (-105) (BetMGM)

As usual, let's start our day off with a cup of hot coffee and an Under. This East Carolina defense scares me a little bit, even though they defend the 3-ball decently. Pryor is one of South Florida's better scorers, but his median point total is just 12 this season.

Pryor should get some open looks in this game, but the 6'9" guard only averages around 8 field goal attempts per contest. He'd have to knock down at least 6 of those shots to have a chance to go over this total, especially since he doesn't get to the free throw line that often.

For the season, Pryor has scored 13 points or less in 18 of his 28 ball games. Current form is also in favor of an Under, as Pryor has stayed Under this point total in 7 of his last 10 outings. The Under is 7-5 in Pryor's 12 games away from home this season.

Jared Coleman-Jones (MTSU) Under 15.5 Points (-120) (DraftKings)

I'm a Middle Tennessee State alum, so it hurts me to place this bet. I get that Colman-Jones is an imposing figure at 6'10" and 240 pounds, but this line is way too high. The Jacksonville, Florida native has a median point total of just 10.5 this season.

I love my Blue Raiders, but they're offense ranks just 314th in field goal attempts per game and 341st in points per game. That kind of snail-like pace is why Coleman-Jones typically gets only around 8 shots per game from the field. Coleman-Jones is a big dude, but Western Kentucky has a big man of their own in Rodney Howard, who is 6'11" and 250 pounds.

The yearly metrics heavily favor an Under in this spot. Coleman Jones has scored 15 or less in 23 of his 32 outings this season. He's also stayed under this total in 10 of his 15 games away from Murfreesboro, TN. I'll be cheering hard for Middle, but my money is on Coleman-Jones staying Under!

Joel Soriano (St. Johns) Over 10.5 Points (+100) (BetMGM)

We've hit a couple of Overs in a row, so we might as well add one here to see if we can keep the streak alive. UConn has a tremendously stingy defense, so the matchup isn't great for Soriano. That being said, I think the 6'11"-250 pounder can do some damage on the low block in this one.

Soriano has scored 11 points or more in 24 of his 32 contests this season. The Over is also 15-2 in Soriano's 17 home games this season. You also have to love that Soriano's median is 14 points for the '23-24 campaign.

Soriano scored 14 points at UConn back on December 23rd. We all know that Rick Pitino is going to have his boys ready to play and the Garden will be rocking. This should be a fun late-afternoon game to watch, and we'll bank on Soriano going over this posted total.
