Well, we did it! We have a Final Four again! Me, and my crew hope to give you some insight with the prop bets we love for the 2021 Final Four in Indianapolis. Darren "The Parlay Kid" is a University of Dayton graduate who has been killing it this year betting ... well, golf but, TPK is no slouch when it comes to the hardwood as well.
Eric Cohen is an Arizona Wildcat grad who is happy for his Lady Wildcats making it to the championship game of the women's Final Four but very, very, very happy his over wager came in against Connecticut a tad bit more if I know Eric.
HARRY'S PROP PROGNOSTICATIONS
-120 BAYLOR'S DAVION MITCHELL OVER 13.5 POINTS
Mitchell has scored double digits in 13 of his last 14 games played. His high games this season were 27 and 31, plus Mitchell shoots 53% from the field.
-140 UCLA'S CODY RILEY OVER 4.5 REBOUNDS
Riley has gone over 4 boards in 4 of his last 6 games and had 12 against Abilene Christian in the 2nd round of the tournament. Call me crazy, but I kind of love that he had zero against the Wolverines. There will be plenty of shots going up against Gonzaga and he needs to have a bounce back game down low if UCLA even considers ideas of a possible monumental upset.
THE PARLAY KID'S PROP PLAYS FOR ALL 4 TEAMS
-120 DAVION MITCHELL OVER 13.5 POINTS (same as me)
-120 QUENTIN GRIMES OVER 2.5 ASSISTS
Grimes had 4 against the Beavers.
+105 TYGER CAMPBELL UNDER 0.5 THREE POINTERS MADE
Campbell is only hitting 24% of his three's this season and has attempted 4 or more three's in just 3 of his last 22 contests.
-130 COREY KISPERT OVER 2.5 THREE POINTERS MADE
Kispert's average from 3 point range is 45.3% and has gone over 2.5 three's in 4 of his last 5 games.
ERIC'S PROP PICKS
+125 CHAMPIONSHIP RESULT : GONZAGA OVER BAYLOR
The two best teams, the Zags are undefeated and getting juice. Makes sense.
+130 BAYLOR'S MACIO TEAGUE TO HAVE 15 OR MORE POINTS AND BAYLOR WINS
Teague has taken at least 15 shots in 5 of his last 7 games. Tack on that Teague shoots 86% from the free throw line.
HARRY'S GAMEDAY PREDICTION
66 BAYLOR BEARS
63 HOUSTON COUGARS
Bears have held opponents to just 60 points per game in tournament and Houston held Oregon St to just 17 first half points.
83 GONZAGA BULLDOGS
74 UCLA BRUINS
The Bruins have scored 73 points or more in 3 of their 5 tournament games and the Zags are a machine on offense averaging a remarkable 55.1% from the field for the season.
Hope these help but whether they do or not, hit something good on Saturday and just feel so thankful we got a FINAL FOUR again.
