The South Carolina Gamecocks are going to be favored for obvious reasons, but they haven’t shot the ball well through 5 games, and it makes laying this big line a bit risky. The USC Upstate Spartans have enough scoring options to hang around here, and we know they’ll be the more motivated side. USC Upstate doesn’t get these chances often. Give me the points.
