While the Zags offense and fast pace will make this challenging, UConn is up to the task with their 13th-ranked defense, per KenPom. This pick has correlation with a UConn win because if the Huskies get it done, there’s a good chance that they’ve kept Gonzaga’s offense at bay.

Gonzaga vs UConn Player Props

Andre Jackson: Over 4.5 Assists (+105) DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The junior guard has been a playmaking machine throughout this tournament, putting up exactly seven assists in each of UConn’s three victories.

This game has a 153.5-point total, so there will be plenty of opportunities for assists in a projected high-scoring game. We’re getting plus money on a low bar for Jackson, who averaged 4.5 assists per game during the season.

Jordan Hawkins: Over 15.5 Points (-140) DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Hawkins is coming off a terrific performance against Arkansas, where he shot 6-of-13 from the field while knocking down all nine of his free throws, finishing with 24 points.

The sophomore guard averaged 16.1 points per game this season, so this is a relatively low bar, especially considering that we should see a lot of points in this game.
