Kansas State vs Michigan State Prop Bets

Last Updated: Mar 22, 2023

Michigan State can move within a game of its 11th Final Four with a victory over No. 3-seed Kansas State in the East Regional semifinals at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

The Spartans and Wildcats are two of the best defensive teams remaining in the tournament, giving up fewer than 70 points per game this season. The game should be extremely close and may come down to overtime.

If you’re uncertain about which team will win, prop betting is a good option that you can use to hedge as outcomes are not reliant on the final score.

Here are some Kansas State vs Michigan State props.

Kansas State vs Michigan State Game Props

Game to Go to Overtime (+950) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

There have been exactly zero OT games through the tournament’s first two rounds. I think that’ll change during the regionals weekend, and this would be a good game to pick, especially given these odds.

Take an OT affair as our CBB pick of the day.

Winning Margin: Victorious Team by 1-5 Points (+130) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Free throws have a way of making hyper-competitive games look lopsided in the final score. But 25 percent of the second-round games were decided by five points or fewer, and the games should only get closer as the cream rises to the top.

Kansas State vs Michigan State Team Props

Michigan State: Over 32.5 1st-Half Points (-105) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Spartans have started hot in each of their two tournament games and have scored 33-plus first-half points in six of their past nine games. I’m expecting this to be a fairly high-scoring game, which means Michigan State will need to score early.

Kansas State: Over 68.5 Points (-110) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Wildcats have averaged 75.5 points per game this season and are scoring 76 points per game through their first two tournament games. They’ve topped 73 points in six of their past seven games.

The Spartans are allowing about 68 points per game and have surrendered fewer than the prop in eight of their past 11 games, with a 7-4 record in that span. But they’re also allowing 75.6 points per game in its losses, and I think K-State will surprise the Spartans, which means it’s likely to go Over the prop total.

Kansas State vs Michigan State Player Props

Keyontae Johnson: Over 25.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-110) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Johnson is averaging 26.7 points, rebounds, and assists this season, although he’s coming off a substandard 13-point, four-rebound, three-assist performance in K-State’s win over Kentucky. But Johnson had to contend with defending National Player of the Year Oscar Tshiebwe in that matchup, especially for boards.

Michigan State forward Joey Hauser is 6-9 and was Big Ten All-Conference Honorable Mention, but he’s not Tshiebwe, which means Johnson should be able to do more vs the Spartans.

Plus, I think this game will get to overtime, which would give Johnson five extra minutes for this prop to hit.
