NCAA College Basketball The Naismith POY Award Betting Odds, Predictions
|NCAAB The Naismith POY Award Picks, Odds, Predictions|
The decisive moment of NCAA Basketball starts with March Madness very close and a player with the Dayton Flyers has called attention to be considered the favorite for the Naismith Player of the Year.
Obi Toppin has contributed to the Flyers having a wonderful record of 26-2 SU in 28 games and becomes the favorite to win the prize for the best college basketball player.
Luka Garza (Hawkeyes) follows Toppin as favorite, Malachi Flynn (San Diego State Aztecs). At the end of this article we will have available the complete list of favorites.
Obi Toppin has an average of 19.7 points and 7.3 rebounds, thanks to these contributions his team Dayton Flyers occupies the number 4 position in the AP survey, Toppin has won the candidacy to win this award thanks to his great season.
Obi Toppin has been a beast for Dayton and it shouldn't be a surprise to lead the Atlantic 10 Conference with an impeccable 15-0 record.
The Naismith awards include the results of the NCAA Tournament and gives fans the opportunity to participate with 25% of the votes.
All due respect to Iain MacMillan's son, Luka Garza with the Iowa Hawkeyes, but the two players who stand out for their courage, skills and opportunities are Oregon Payton Pritchard and Markus Howard de Marquette. The two men are basic, but their styles are completely different.
Pritchard is an earth general who plays almost every minute for the Oregon Ducks while taking the opportunity to throw the deep ball at critical moments.
Pritchard reached the Final Four in 2017 and was the leader of a Ducks team that has 22-7 SU in 29 games and leads the Pac-12 Conference classification.
Next is Markus Howard, who seems to be able to lose 30 points while sleeping and is second in the NCAA in points per game with 27.2.
Howard is not only the main offensive weapon of the Marquette Golden Eagles, it is the offensive since only another player on the team averages more than 10 points per game.
Last year was Howard's presentation party, but when Ja Morant and Murray State smoked with Marquette in the first round of the NCAA tournament, he moved into the background for this year's race.
