Saturday's best bet in college basketball comes to us in a 12:00 pm ET tip-off on ESPN2. Handicapper John Hyslop gives us his top player prop in the Virginia and Louisville college basketball game in the ACC.

Saturday's College Basketball Best Bet: It's Kihei Clark Time

I know what you're thinking. "Slop, you don't even watch college basketball so how in the world do you think you're going to bet a player prop?" That's the problem and the problem is with you if you think that (no offense). If you think you have to watch a sport to bet on it then you have a lot to learn about gambling. Take soccer for example. I never watch that and I bet it all the time. Maybe if the NBA had games on at noon on Saturdays we could bet those but they don't. We're the victims here people. Lucky for us, I understand basketball at a level that allows me to bet it even if I've never heard of the people playing. Just let me see a picture of the two teams playing and I can make an educated bet on a point total. How hard could it be?

Kihei Clark Over 4.5 Assists (+115)(Bet $100 to Win $115)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

This one is at DraftKings because they are the only book that has an assist number listed for this kid right now. FanDuel has rebounds and threes but no points or assists. That's weird. It's better than BetMGM and Barstool though because they don't even have player props for this game period. That shouldn't even be legal. If I was in charge, everyone would get a number.

Anytime you look at a picture of a basketball team and you see a guy that's only 5'7", you have to wonder what he did to get on the team. Like he must be really good at basketball. It's just not common to see guys that short on the team. I don't make the rules.

Once I figured out who the 5'7" guy was, I started looking through old box scores and realized I was 100% correct. This kid is a stone cold killer. Literally hiding in plain sight. If you saw him without his uniform on there is no way you would guess he was on the team. And if we don't see him coming, neither will Louisville.

I was going to go points with this kid but I changed my mind and went with plus money on his assists. It's just better. He cooked Louisville last time with 15 points but I think they will remember him. How could they forget a 5'7" kid making it rain all over them? Nobody forgets about that.

The thing is, this kid doesn't come off the floor much but he's crazy unselfish. He's had at least five assists in each of his last three games and even found time to dish out five between scoring buckets the last time these teams met. We may have stumbled onto greatness here people.
