The Ole Miss Rebels and South Carolina Gamecocks meet Tuesday in college basketball action at the Colonial Life Arena.

The Ole Miss Rebels look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Ole Miss Rebels are averaging 77.1 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 69.8 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Breein Tyree is averaging 18.4 points and 2.7 assists while Terence Davis is averaging 15.6 points and 6.1 rebounds. Devontae Shuler is dishing 3.1 assists and Blake Hinson is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Ole Miss Rebels are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.3 percent from the free throw line. The Ole Miss Rebels are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.2 rebounds per game. The Ole Miss Rebels have won five of their last seven road games.

The South Carolina Gamecocks could also use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The South Carolina Gamecocks are averaging 73.5 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 75.5 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Chris Silva is averaging 14.2 points and 7.6 rebounds while A.J. Lawson is averaging 13.8 points and 2.8 assists. Hassani Gravett is the third double-digit scorer and Keyshawn Bryant is dishing 1.4 assists. The South Carolina Gamecocks are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 68.1 percent from the free throw line. The South Carolina Gamecocks are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.3 rebounds per game. The South Carolina Gamecocks have won six of their last seven home games.

The Rebels are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 road games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. Southeastern and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Gamecocks are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. Southeastern, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rebels are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the underdog is 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings. The over is 20-8 in Gamecocks last 28 overall. The under is 5-2 in Rebels last 7 road games.

The home team has won six of the last eight meetings between Ole Miss and South Carolina. The Ole Miss Rebels are winning their last five games by an average of 5.8 points and are an impressive 10-2 ATS this season on the road. The South Carolina Gamecocks have been hit or miss all season, but they've been rather consistent at home where they've covered five of their last six and have lost just once since the calendar changed to 2019. At home, South Carolina has wins over a ranked Auburn and ranked Missisppi State, and the Gamecocks just beat up on a decent Arkansas club. While Ole Miss has been money covering on the road, I'm leaning toward the Gamecocks and the free bucket.

Pick:
South Carolina +2
