3 Best Prop Bets for UConn vs San Diego State NCAA Championship Game (Andre Jackson Jr Steps Up in the Paint)

3 Best Prop Bets for UConn vs San Diego State NCAA Championship Game (Andre Jackson Jr Steps Up in the Paint)


The UConn Huskies and San Diego State Aztecs are set to collide in the 2022-23 NCAA Championship Game on Monday, April 3. FanDuel Sportsbook currently lists UConn as the 7.5-point spread favorite, along with a projected total of 132.5 points.

Here are three of the best prop bets for the UConn-San Diego State game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

UConn vs San Diego State Prop Bets

1. Andre Jackson Jr. — Rebounds: Over 6.5 (-125)

Andre Jackson Jr. has been a consistent rebounding presence for Connecticut over the last few months. The junior guard is averaging exactly 6.5 rebounds over his last 12 games, having finished with the over on this prop six times over that stretch — including in two of his last three games. Being a 6-foot-6 guard helps Jackson collect boards and that frame should come in handy against a San Diego State squad that's given up an average of 41 rebounds over its previous three contests. With a national title on the line, I expect Jackson to give it his all tonight, finishing with more than 6.5 rebounds in the process.

2. Adama Sanogo — Points: Over 16.5 (-106)

Adama Sanogo has been among the best players throughout the 2022-23 NCAA Tournament. The talented big man is averaging 20.2 points through the first five tournament games and only shot worse than 68.8% from the field in one of those contests. Although San Diego State's defense is phenomenal, Sanogo sees enough volume (13.2 field-goal attempts over the last five games) to hit the over on this prop. It also helps that the Aztecs take 18.0 personal fouls per contest. Considering how Sanogo shoots 75.8% from the charity stripe, he'll have more than enough opportunities for an impressive offensive performance.

3. Lamont Butler — Assists: Over 2.5 (-165)

Lamont Butler shouldn't have any issues finishing with at least a trio of assists tonight. The third-year Aztec is averaging 3.6 assists over his last nine games and finished with at least three seven times over that span. The Huskies only force 12.7 turnovers per game (No. 142), so Butler will likely have a decent amount of time to hold onto the ball to find passing lanes. Besides, if San Diego State wants to keep up with UConn's offense (78.6 PPG, No. 21), the Aztecs are going to rely on Butler to set up his opponent teammates. Fortunately, I see him rising to the occasion.
