We all know that UConn is the best team in the country and simply beats teams into the ground without blinking. However, South Carolina is no pushover and hasn't lost a home game in three years. You can expect a nasty home crowd, as this is easily the biggest women's game of the regular season and the biggest game for the Gamecocks in quite some time. The Huskies win, but there's value with the points considering USC is so tough at home.
Take the points.
