Here we go with the College Hoops DFS slate for the Elite 8 NCAA Tournament games on Monday. There are two games on tap starting at 7:15 pm ET. Here are the listed odds of each matchup:

Arkansas vs. Baylor (-7.5) / Total: 148.5

Oregon State vs. Houston (-8) / Total: 129

With that, let’s get to the daily fantasy analysis!

GUARDS

Davion Mitchell - Baylor - FD: $7,000 - DK: $7,200

Mitchell is a little bit cheaper than his teammate, Jared Butler, on both DFS sites. Both of them are hovering around the same projection, according to our CBB DFS Optimizer, which crowns Mitchell as the superior value. Mitchell has been looking good with 30+ fantasy points in two of three tournament games, and he should have plenty of fantasy opportunities while playing up in pace against Arkansas.

DeJon Jarreau - Houston - FD: $6,400 - DK: $6,200

The Oregon State story is fantastic, but let’s face it: they are the worst team remaining in this tournament. I’m not saying they will bow out, but keep in mind that the Beavers rank 226th in defensive efficiency on the season. This should be a slow, low-scoring game, but you can look towards a few Houston players to exploit OSU’s defensive vulnerabilities. Jarreau is the main guy to make that happen, and he has a non-imposing mid-range salary that works through all DFS formats.

Davonte Davis - Arkansas - FD: $6,200 - DK: $5,700

Teammate Moses Moody has more upside, but Davis is the more bankable DFS option for cash games. Davonte has hit a reliable 27+ fantasy points in three of his last four games, and that’s a realistic expectation tonight. As mentioned earlier, this Baylor-Arkansas game is the one to pull from, and Davis is a prime lift on both FanDuel and DraftKings.

Also Consider: Jared Butler, Matthew Mayer, Ethan Thompson

FORWARDS

Justin Smith - Arkansas - FD: $7,900 - DK: $8,000

If Arkansas wants a chance to pull off the upset, then Justin Smith will need to have a monster game. He has stepped up lately with 29+ fantasy points in four of his last five, which includes an outstanding 58 FP showing in the First Round. Smith is the primary rebounder for Arkansas, and he can easily lead them in scoring while blocking a few shots and swiping a few steals. He has some of the best floor/ceiling potential on this slate.

Jalen Tate - Arkansas - FD: $5,800 - DK: $6,500

Tate is another Razorback who should play the entire game, barring foul trouble. He has produced 28+ fantasy points in two of three tournament games, and he’s a strong cash option on this two-game slate. Tate has been up-and-down throughout the season, but Arkansas is leaning heavily on him throughout the tourney. I’m taking a chance on him considering the two-game slate.

Roman Silva - Oregon State - FD: $4,800 - DK: $4,800

Silva threw up a dud last time around, producing only seven fantasy points through 27 minutes against Loyola. There’s some concern of a repeat disappointment against another slow, defensive-minded team. However, Silva is dirt-cheap, and he produced 24 / 30 fantasy points in the first two tournament games. He’s seeing a ton of minutes, and I believe he’s a respectable DFS asset when considering the brevity of this two-game slate.

Also Consider: Justin Gorham, Adam Flagler
