Final Four Props: UNC Individual Scoring Props Vs. Duke

  • UNC and Duke face off for the first time in the Final Four.
  • Underdog UNC has three players with point total O/Us of 16.5.
  • Armando Bacot, Caleb Love, and Brady Manek will be focal points of the UNC offense.

NEW ORLEANS - UNC and Duke are set to face off in the Final Four matchup of a lifetime, as Coach K looks to leave his program with one last championship in his final season as Duke’s head coach.

Duke may be favored, but there are three extremely interesting college basketball prop betting lines in terms of individual scoring by UNC players.

Multiple UNC players have O/Us for points scored set at 16.5, which is a significant amount for the college game, even with UNC’s scoring prowess.

Armando Bacot Points O/U Odds

  • Over 16.5 -103
  • Under 16.5 -127

Armando Bacot, UNC’s talented 6 '10’’ forward, averaged exactly 16.5 points per game in the 2021-22 season.

In his four tournament games, Bacot has scored more than 16.5 points twice, and less than 16.5 points twice.

Against St. Peters, Bacot had his highest-scoring game of the tournament, dropping 20 points. His lowest-scoring game of the tournament saw him put up 14 points against UCLA.

Bacot is nothing if not consistent - the last time he scored less than double-digit points was in February, and that was one of only two times he scored less than ten points in 2022.

Caleb Love Points O/U Odds

  • Over 16.5 -103
  • Under 16.5 -127

Caleb Love’s season average for points is set at 15.7 per game, although a 30 point explosion against UCLA might be skewing the odds a bit.

Love, like Bacot, has scored more than 16.5 points twice in his four NCAA tournament games - the aforementioned 30 points against UCLA, and a 23 point game against Marquette in round one.

There’s significantly more variance in Love’s game than Bacot’s, both good and bad. Love’s ceiling is higher, but his floor is lower - he scored five points against Baylor.

Brady Manek Points O/U Odds

  • Over 16.5 -117
  • Under 16.5 -112

Based on the odds, Brady Manek is the player that is the most likely to score more than 16.5 points of these three UNC talents.

Manek carries an average of 15.2 points per game into this contest against Duke, the lowest of the three players involved.

However, he has been an important part of this UNC team in the tournament, going over 16.5 points in three of his four tournament games.

Manek scored 28 points against Marquette, 26 against Baylor, and 19 against St. Peters, only falling off briefly with a 13 point performance against UCLA.

He’s roaring into form at the right time, but will it be enough for him to take over in what could be a hotly contested rivalry game?

Only time will tell whether the online sportsbooks were right to put the O/Us so high on so many players on the same team.
