The final game of the NCAA Tournament offers several game and player props to choose from. Here are our best San Diego State vs. UConn player prop bets based on the top NCAAB odds.

Most are picking the Huskies to win the national title with their San Diego State vs. UConn predictions, and rightfully so. They have been dominant in their run to the championship game, with their closest game a 13-point victory over the Miami Hurricanes in the Final Four. But if they’re going to win, who is going to help them hoist the trophy at the end of the night?

The Huskies' offense is going to have to become the first to decipher a very stingy Aztecs’ defense. Will any of UConn's players have good nights on the offensive end, or should we just assume that everyone is going Under in this game? And if the Aztecs are going to have any chance at all, who will step up?

Here are our best San Diego State vs. UConn March player prop bets (odds via DraftKings and BetMGM; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

San Diego State vs. UConn player prop predictions

Adama Sanogo Over 15.5 points (-125 via BetMGM) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Aztecs have the toughest defense the Huskies will play this tournament, but that should not stop Sanogo from finishing off a run that will likely end with him hoisting the Most Outstanding Player award. Sanogo scored at least 18 points in four of his five tournament games, and his field goal percentage has been absolutely incredible.

The Aztecs may be able to thwart him a bit down low, but Sanogo has multiple ways in which he can score. Additionally, it seems like the sports betting sites are already taking into account the solid defense he will be up against by putting this number well below his tournament average.

Andre Jackson Jr. Over 18.5 Pts + Asts + Rebs (-105 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This line is a massive overreaction to what Jackson accomplished against the Hurricanes. Though the Huskies dominated that game from start to finish, Jackson wasn’t part of the fun. He finished with just six points, four assists, and two rebounds, but he also played only 22 minutes.

Jackson is averaging 4.7 assists for the 2022-23 season, so it may be tempting to take the Over on his assists on Monday night. However, the Aztecs just held the Florida Atlantic Owls to six total team assists on Saturday, so there is a chance that the Huskies do most of their scoring in grittier ways.

However, we love this combo number because Jackson has been solid in all three areas all tournament long. When playing more than his average of 28.9 minutes, which he should certainly do on Monday, Jackson has gone over this number in every single of his games this tournament. The Aztecs’ defense is really good, but this number is too low.

Nathan Mensah Over 5.5 rebounds (-115 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐

It’s difficult to take any of the Aztecs’ big men to do anything because they all play such sporadic minutes. After playing more than 25 minutes in back-to-back games, it looked like Keshad Johnson was the guy for the Aztecs, but then he played only 21 against the Owls, which was fewer than Mensah, who finished with seven points and six rebounds.

Though it’s hard to predict how much Johnson, Mensah, and Jaeden LeDee will be on the floor, Mensah has seen the most consistent minutes and production so far in this tournament. 

He has pulled down at least six rebounds in each of his last four games, even when he played only 19 minutes against the Creighton Bluejays in the Elite Eight. Mensah will certainly have his hands full against Sanogo and Donovan Clingan, but he has been a solid rebounder all season, and we expect that to continue on Monday.
