South Carolina is 7-15-1 in their last 23 games against the SEC, 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven home games, and 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 games following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Vanderbilt is 8-2 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five games, and 9-3-1 against the spread following a loss. The road team is 11-5 against the spread in the last 16 meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total and I like the under 132.5. 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.
