Texas A&M is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games as a road favorite. South Carolina is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
I get why A&M would be favored here as they’re 6-0 against South Carolina since A&M joined the SEC a few years ago. However, this is still a South Carolina team that battles hard and plays their best football at home. The Gamecocks are also 3-1-1 ATS this season and Texas A&M plays in a lot of close games that ought to be a lot further apart than how they play out. I’ll take the points with South Carolina at home in this one.
