Top DraftKings College Basketball Player Props for Friday, February 9

After a nice 2-1 evening, we're ready to rock and roll with more college basketball player props. The 3 overtime periods gave us a scare in the Arizona vs. Utah game, but Caleb Love still stayed under his point total.

Gabe Madsen also nailed five 3-pointers to easily cash our Over 1.5 ticket. Our lone loser was on Oumar Ballo, who busted our under by grabbing 16 rebounds. Let's start a hot streak! Here's what we found in college hoops on DraftKings for Friday, February 9.

Zeb Jackson (VCU) Over 3.5 Total Rebounds (+130)

Here we go again taking another guard to go over his rebounding prop line. The mathematical edges can be maddening, but we simply have to trust in it. Jackson is averaging 4.2 rebounds per game, and he's gone over this total in 12 of 21 contests this season.

The 6'5" Michigan transfer has also grabbed 5 or more rebounds in 2 of his last 3 outings. We also love that Jackson has seen a spike in his overall minutes the last few games. He's been on the floor for 28 minutes or more his last 3 games.

Jackson should also have a favorable matchup tonight for rebounding against Dayton. The Flyers are a great squad, but they rank just 199th in the country in overall rebounds per game. Look for Zeb to grab at least 4 boards and cash this nice plus money ticket for us.

Jaedon LeDee (San Diego St) Over 8.5 Total Rebounds (+110)

Holy Smoke! Are we really going to take two Overs on the same college hoops prop card? Surprisingly so! LeDee is a physical player and an absolute beast down low on the block for San Diego State.

LeDee has only gone over this rebounding total in 11 of his 22 ball games this season, and his median number of rebounds is 8.5. That stat line isn't all that great for us, but keep in mind that the +110 price means that this bet only needs to win 48% of the time to turn a profit.

As we preach quite often on this column, everything in sports betting is about price. Now that we know that the price is decent, let's break down the matchup. As we mentioned above, LeDee is a big, physical guy at 6-9 and 240 pounds.

That type of size should help LeDee get plenty of rebounds in this contest. He'll be going up against Nevada big man Nick Davidson. Davidson is a solid player, but LeDee outweighs him by 30 pounds, so he shouldn't have any trouble boxing him out on the glass.

As a team, Nevada ranks just 151st in total rebounds per game and just 260th in offensive rebounds. Let's plan on a big night from LeDee in the rebounding department by taking this plus money Over!
