The under is 4-1 in Gamecocks last 5 home games. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Kentucky Wildcats are playing possibly their best ball of the season right now and have proven they can win outside of Lexington where they outscore teams by an average of nine points and shoot 50 percent from the field. The South Carolina Gamecocks are that same ugly, defensive club that can hang around when 100 percent locked in, but has zero answers when a much more talented club hits shots. The South Carolina Gamecocks shoot just 40.4 percent from the field at home. That's not going to cut it. I'll eat the chalk.
