March Madness Round 2 Prop Bets

Last Updated: Mar 23, 2024

This March has already been mad.

There’s already been upsets, overtime, and comebacks. But with the first round behind us, the madness is only bound to continue, especially while CBB betting

If you’re worried about betting spreads, totals, and moneylines, we’ve still got you covered. Here are some March Madness props to wager for Round 2.

March Madness Round 2 Props

Under 70.5 1H Points ()

Arizona vs. Dayton • FanDuel Sportsbook (1 unit)

Dayton and Arizona may be two of the most efficient offensive teams in the country. But the Wildcats are also a top-10 defensive team per KenPom, and the Flyers are 336th in tempo.

Plus, this will be the first game to tip off Saturday at 10:45 a.m. local time in Salt Lake City. That’s an unconventional start time and should lead to a sleepy start for both teams.

Duquesne Under 69.5 Points )

Illinois vs. Duquesne • bet365 Sportsbook (1 unit)

The Dukes only score about 71 points per game in the A-10 and have scored 69 points or fewer in 17 of its past 23 games.

The Illini don’t play particularly good defense, but they have allowed 69 points or fewer in two of their past four, including their win over Morehead State on Thursday.

Illinois has also allowed 69 or fewer points in six of its 11 nonconference games, plus its wins over Big Ten- NCAA Tournament foes Michigan State and Northwestern.

All that should lead to a comfortable Illinois win in which it allows 69 points or fewer.

James Madison Over 70.5 Points )

Duke vs. James Madison • FanDuel Sportsbook (1 unit)

The Dukes are scoring 84 points per game, the 11th-best mark in the country, and have topped 71 points in 16 straight games.

So why they stop doing so now? Even though Duke is a top-25 defensive team per KenPom, the Dukes have scored in the 70s in each of their games against NCAA Tournament opponents.

With excellent guard play and a high-octane offense, the Dukes should be poised to give Duke all it can handle Sunday night.

Colorado Over 71.5 Points )

Marquette vs. Colorado • DraftKings Sportsbook (1 unit)

The Buffaloes scored 102 in their two-point win over Florida on Friday, and they’re a top-50 scoring team in the nation by points per game and a top-25 team per KenPom’s offensive efficiency metric.

The Buffaloes have surpassed this mark in eight of their past 11 games, despite failing to do so in three straight games in the Pac-12 Tournament and First Four.

Plus, the Golden Eagles have allowed 72-plus in four of their past seven.
