Vanderbilt is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, 1-4 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 2-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record. South Carolina is 1-5 against the spread following a loss, 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four road games. South Carolina is 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games at Vanderbilt.
With the total at 127 Ilike the under here as neither of these teams are consistent enough. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
