Purdue vs. UConn Player Prop Picks: Can Braden Smith, Cam Spencer Make an Impact in National Championship?

We need a few props to bet on tonight for the final game of the College Basketball season.

The Purdue Boilermakers have their sights set on their first National Championship.

UConn has felt the feeling of being at National Championships five times before, including one a season ago.

Dan Hurley's team will attempt to become the first team to repeat since Florida did in 2005-2006.

Purdue vs. UConn Prediction

Let’s take a look at how Purdue found their way to the National Championship.

Round of 64: Purdue 78 against Grambling 50

Round of 32: Purdue 106 against Utah State 67

Sweet 16: Purdue 80 against Gonzaga 68

Elite Eight: Purdue 72 against Tennessee 66

Final Four: Purdue 63 against NC State 50

The Boilermakers were a part of one of the worst losses in March Madness history last year against Farleigh Dickinson.

They have put that loss behind them with the run they have gone on this year.

Purdue knows this will be their toughest task of the season.

Dan Hurley's squad is on an all-time run in March.

Not only have the Huskies won all their games in March over the last two seasons, but they have covered all 11.

Here is how the Huskies got to the Championship.

Round of 64: UConn 91 against Stenson 52

Round of 32: UConn 75 against Northwestern 58

Sweet 16: UConn 82 against San Diego State 52

Elite Eight: UConn 77 against Illinois 52

Final Four: UConn 86 against Alabama 72

The Huskies roll into this contest as a seven-point favorite.

They have won all their games by 14 points or more.

Let’s dive into my prop best bets.

Purdue vs. UConn Player Prop Picks

Braden Smith will be a key in this game.

UConn will send doubles at Edey throughout the game, which will lead to many open shots for Purdue.

Smith averaged 12.0 points per game during the regular season, shooting 43% from three.

The sophomore will play almost the entire game tonight.

Cam Spencer has the ability to drop 20+ points in this game.

The senior is also one of the best passers on the team and is capable of ripping off multiple assists tonight.

Lastly, Spencer is a strong rebounder for a guard, averaging 4.8 per game.

Similar to Smith, Spencer will be on the court for the majority of this game.
