Matchup History

Florida’s 71-63 win over South Carolina back on January 15th, 2022, made it seven straight wins for the road team in this matchup.


South Carolina is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Florida is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games following a win while the under is 10-1 in their last 11 games overall.


I’m backing South Carolina here. It may not be a popular pick, but Florida’s done nothing to justify laying this many points with them, even at home against South Carolina. When we’ve seen the Gamecocks on the road, they’ve beaten Kentucky as 20-point underdogs and also took Vanderbilt to overtime. I’ll take a shot with South Carolina and the points here.
