Prop bets are a great alternate wager to have on a March Madness game. With short-priced favorites in the early rounds and closely contested matches in the latter stages, a prop bet is an ideal alternative.

Unsure who will win? Or reluctant to bet on a short-priced favorite? You can instead place a wager on a prop bet. With various bet types available including player points, assists, rebounds, our experts will analyze the stats and matchups to unearth some prop bet gems throughout the March Madness tournament. 

What Prop Bets Can I Place For March Madness?

One of the most common prop bets you can place during March Madness is on the total points a player will score. Betting on a player rather than a team is a great way to cash in on expert knowledge and detailed research into player matchups. Many other prop bets are available in each March Madness game, including player rebounds, assists, or a combined total of all of the above. The beauty of prop betting is the niche nature of the markets, breaking down a game, player-by-player to make a wager based on expert knowledge and analysis.

March Madness Player Prop Bets

There are various game-by-game player props on offer throughout the tournament with the main metrics of a players’ performance the main way to wager on a player prop. Each game will have a select few players listed with over/under lines on Points Scored, Assist, and Rebounds or sometimes a market combining the three metrics.

Another popular prop bet wager in the March Madness betting is on the Most Outstanding Player. In effect, it’s the MVP during the March Madness bracket and a futures market rather than a single game prop bet. It is definitely worth noting that players on a national championship-winning team have a particularly good record in winning the award, with only 12 winners not coming from the championship team since March Madness’s inception in 1939.

March Madness Team Prop Bets

March Madness Team Prop Bets are a great way of wagering on a game and eliminating one side’s performance from your bet, to an extent. Obviously how one team plays affects the other, but you can wager on one team’s performance rather than a combined total. Team points totals if you’re more confident of one team having a good or bad game rather than both.

Another popular example of a March Madness Team Prop is the Winning Margin market, a tougher bet to call but you can get good odds if you correctly predict who wins and by how much, with brackets like 1-5, 5-10, and 11+ typically available, but dependent on the matchup.

March Madness Game Prop Bets

Most similar to March Madness Player and Team props, March Madness Game props are based on the on-court action. Some of the most popular markets here will include alternate totals lines such as over 110 total points if you like a shootout, or under 70 if you think it’ll be a slow game. These alternate lines will be set and priced in relation to the regular totals and spread. Other options can include betting on the highest-scoring half in the match, or even for the game to go to Overtime. March Madness game props are a great way to be involved even if you don’t particularly like either team to cover spreads or want to push the lines on the totals.
