Underdog Fantasy College Basketball Picks For December 9th
Underdog Pick Em Record (Est 12/1/2023)
All Pick Em Selections: 9-8-1
Perfect 3-0 Pick Em Entries: 0-6
Kevin McCullar (Kansas) Higher Than 16.5 Points
Kevin McCullar has been a cash cow so far this season. McCullar has scored more than 17.5 points in each of Kansas’ last three games, 5 of the last 6, and 6 of the Jayhawks ‘ games. The Grad Senior also scored 21 points against Missouri last season.
Missouri 7-foot-5 Center Connor Vanover was the Summit League Defensive Player of the Year last season. Vanover is slowly getting more playing time from Dennis Gates and is probably Mizzou’s best chance of keeping Hunter Dickinson in check. This rivalry has notoriously been lopsided. I think the game will get away from the Tigers once again inside the Fogg. My prediction is that Kevin McCullar will be a big reason why.
Gabe Madsen (Utah) Higher Than 13.5 Points
Gabe Madsen is Utah’s 2nd leading scorer so far this season. The Holy War ensues Saturday night, and it’s BYU’s first road game, and I’m looking to fade the Cougars. The tempo projects to mid or slightly faster than normal. BYU hasn’t played many good offenses yet this season, but the Cougars force opposing offenses to shoot the outside shot. Madsen is the Utes’ sharpshooter, hitting 43% of his threes so far this season.
The 6’6 Senior has played 30 or minutes in five straight games. In those games Madsen is averaging 16.6 points per game. Lastly, Utah’s leading scorer, Branden Carlson, is a game-time decision after missing the Southern Utah game due to an injury. Against the Thunderbirds, Madsen scored 19 points on 16 field goal attempts. I don’t think Madsen will shoot at the same volume, but if Carlson isn’t 100%, Madsen’s attempts will be closer to last game’s rather than his 10.8 FGA so far this season.
Jaden Bediako (Seton Hall) Lower Than 10.5 Points
Seton Hall plays Rutgers in a New Jersey rockfight of a game. Both teams love to play at a slow tempo, and points will be at a premium in this game. Last year’s final was a Seton Hall 45-43 victory. NOT A SINGLE PLAYER in the game scored more than 10.5 points.
This season, Seton Hall’s big man, Jaden Bediako, is averaging 10.5 points per game. Rutgers will counter with Clifford Omoruyi in the post. Omoruyi ranks 13th in DBPR on EvanMiya.com in the country. DBPR is an advanced metric that rates a player’s individual defensive efficiency. It’s safe to say “Big O” is one of the best big men in the country and should be able to keep Bediako lower than 10.5 points scored.
