South Carolina is 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four home games, 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 games following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, and 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six games. Mississippi is 5-2 against the spread against the SEC, 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games, and 0-4-1 against the spread following a win. The underdog has covered the spread in 10 of the last 12 meetings of these two.
The line amounts to a toss up in which case I will take the home team as I see it as a toss up as well.
