South Carolina is 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win. The over is 6-1 in South Carolina’s last 7 road games. Florida is 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. The over is 5-2 in Florida’s last 7 games. The over is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
These two teams have scored similar points on offense, but South Carolina has the better defense. South Carolina has played well in their last few games, but will be on the road here. Florida’s defense has looked lost at times this season and I don’t expect that to get much better. I like South Carolina with the points.
