Matchup History

South Carolina’s 77-75 win over LSU back on February 19th. 2022, snapped LSU’s three-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.


South Carolina is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 9-4 in their last 13 games overall. LSU is 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a loss while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.


I’m not rushing to the window to bet this thing, but I’d lean towards the under here. Both of these teams are averaging less than 65 PPG in their last 5 games, and this just feels like a first to 65 wins kind of game if we even make it that high. Give me the under in what I’m expecting to be a 40-minute brick fest.
