Guide to Betting Duke & Zion Williamson Tournament Prop Bets

Guide to Betting Duke & Zion Williamson Tournament Prop Bets

Zion Williamson of Duke has been the best player in college basketball this season. Will he be the best player in the NCAA Tournament as well?

A tournament Most Outstanding Player award for the Blue Devils’ freshman phenomenon would earn bettors $420 for each $100 wagered, one of several intriguing prop bets on Williamson and Duke offered by PointsBet.

As far as the Williamson prop bets, winning Most Outstanding Player returns the most value at +420, but that would almost certainly require Duke to win the national championship.

The Blue Devils are a +300 bet to win the tournament, so combining that with a Zion MOP prop bet could make for a nice combined payday should Duke cut down the nets in Minneapolis.

Other Top Zion Williamson Prop Bets

A more short-term prop bet on Williamson is 25 points and 10 rebounds in the first round, which goes for +110. Williamson has scored 27 or more in four of his past five games (not including the 30 seconds he played pre-shoe blowout against North Carolina), and grabbed at least 11 rebounds in three of his last five.

One caveat: a likely blowout victory in the Round of 64 might mean that Williamson sits for much of the second half.

Combination Bets

Williamson combining for 50 or more points and 20 or more rebounds in the first two rounds combined is also at +110. In his last two ACC tournament games he combined for 52 points and 16 boards, against competition much stiffer than what he’s likely to face in the opening two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

Williamson combining for 100 points and 40 rebounds before the Final Four is also a +110 bet.

On the season, Williamson averages 22 points and 8.9 rebounds per game, numbers dragged down by his goose egg in his brief appearance in the first contest against North Carolina.

Since returning from the knee sprain he suffered in that game, the ACC Player of the Year is averaging 27 points and 10 rebounds per outing.

Williamson vs. Barrett

Some prop bets pit Williamson against teammate R.J. Barrett, the leading scorer in the ACC averaging 22.9 points per game.

Williamson outscoring Barrett in the first two rounds is available at -120, and for the tournament at -135.

In the 29 games in which both players have been active this season, Barrett has outscored Williamson 15 times, and Williamson has outscored Barrett 14 times.

Top Duke Prop Bets in 2019 Tournament

As far as Duke prop bets, the Devils reaching the Elite Eight is available at -290 — hardly the best of value wagers — and making the Final Four is offered at -150.

Expecting the Devils to pour it on in the early rounds? Winning by a margin of 70 or more is +130 and by 80 (really?) or more is +350. Just keep in mind that Duke’s largest margins of victory this season have been 64 and 51, against Stetson and Princeton, respectively.

And be wary of the prop bet on any Duke player recording a triple-double in the tournament, offered at an alluring +575.

In the Mike Krzyzewski era, only two Duke players have recorded triple-doubles: Shelden Williams with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks against Maryland in 2006, and Barrett earlier this season with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists against North Carolina State.
