UConn vs Purdue player props: National championship

  • Zach Edey: Over 24.5 (+100)
  • Fletcher Loyer: Over 9.5 points (-120)
  • Zach Edey: 14+ rebounds (+140)

Zach Edey (Purdue) | Over 24.5 points | +100 at FanDuel

Let’s break down our first prop which is going to be Zach Edey over 24.5 points.

Edey has been the best player all tournament long. There’s a reason why he is our front-runner for March Madness MVP. We saw him score 40 points and grab 16 rebounds in the Purdue’s Elite 8 victory over Tennessee, and I think we see Edey have a monster game in this spot as well.

Edey is the two-time reigning Naismith College Player of the Year award winner and for good reason. He has been near-impossible to stop down low, and he also cleans up on the glass extremely well. Edey is one of those players who needed a big tournament to improve his draft stock, and fortunately for him, he’s done exactly that.

The most recent NBA mocks have been released and we’re starting to see Edey as a back-end lottery pick, which was not the case before this tournament started. I expect Zach to pick up where he left off against NC State, and continue to impress and fill the stat sheet. I expect him to finish around the 30-point mark.

Fletcher Loyer (Purdue) | Over 9.5 points | -120 at FanDuel

Our second prop play is going to be Fletcher Loyer over 9.5 points. He is the true X-factor for Purdue. He is the team’s best 3-point shooter, and a guy you simply cannot leave open if you are the UConn Huskies.

If Loyer finds his space, he can be a complete game-changer and has been consistently putting up good numbers this tourney. Loyer has scored 10 or more in four straight tourney games, and the only game he was not able to eclipse this mark was the Grambling State blowout. When he has gotten his normal minutes, he has been automatic at scoring at least 10 points in every game, which should be the case in the championship. Loyer is a sophomore and has experience, he is not a guy I expect to do poorly due to nerves. He will be ready to go in the big game.

Zach Edey (Purdue) | Over 13.5 rebounds | +140 at FanDuel

Let’s jump right into our final prop play, which is Edey 14+ rebounds at +140. This one is a bit more of a long shot, as we are going to need UConn to miss a good number of shots to get to this number. However, I do expect us to get there.

As I stated earlier, Edey has had some monster games and actually recorded 16 rebounds in the Tennessee game. In the national championship, we will see the battle of the giants between Edey and Donovan Clingan which is what we have all been looking forward to. Look for Edey to clean the glass and dominate a smaller opponent.
