North Carolina and Miami meet for a second time this season after the Tar Heels won a barn burner in Coral Gables two weeks ago, 75-72.

Armando Bacot and RJ Davis, the two best players on the Tar Heels, will look to lead the ACC leaders to another pivotal victory in the team's pursuit of a conference title crown. How should we target both in the player prop market? We got you covered with our two favorites on Tuesday.

Best college basketball player props for Miami vs. North Carolina

  • Armando Bacot OVER 11.5 rebounds
  • RJ Davis OVER 4.5 assists

Armando Bacot OVER 11.5 rebounds

Bacot is one of the most high-motor big men in the country, third in defensive rebounding rate in ACC play and 14th in offensive rebounding rate on the best rebounding team in the league.

Always a threat to get to double digits on the glass, Bacot has grabbed at least 10 boards in six straight games, and over 11.5 in three of the last four, including when he grabbed 15 against Miami two weeks ago.

The Hurricanes are a middling rebounding unit trending in the wrong direction, 128th in the country on the year.

I think Bacot can get over this modest mark with another high effort game down low.

RJ Davis OVER 4.5 assists

This is a dime above Davis' season-long mark, but I believe there is reason to believe the senior guard can get over this.

Miami forces teams to work for its buckets by way of passing, blitzing ball handlers, and forcing the ball out of the playmaker's hands, allowing opponents to post an assist on nearly 58% of its made field goals. That means Davis should have plenty of assist opportunities on Monday night, as the team's highest-usage player.

He had five assists in the first meeting, and there's plenty of reason for him to put up a similar mark in the rematch.
