The South Carolina Gamecocks are coming off of their first SEC win of the season blowing out Texas A&M by 28 points in Columbia. South Carolina is 2-8 away from home this season and at 8-12 they have the worst overall record in the SEC. Sindarius Thornwell is averaging 13.2 points to lead the Gamecocks in scoring. Brenton Williams is averaging 12.8 points, Tyrone Johnson is averaging 11.2 points, and Duane Notice is averaging 7.3 points. South Carolina is averaging 71.3 points and they are shooting 43.4 percent while defensively they are allowing 70.7 points while their opponents are shooting 43.5 percent. South Carolina will be looking for their first true road game of the year.
South Carolina has covered the point spread in five of the last six meetings of these two and he home team has covered the spread in five of the last six meetings of these two.
My free pick in this game will be on the total which at 151 is too high for me so I am on the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
