South Carolina Upstate comes into this game with a 15-16 record overall and they have gone 17-10-2 against the spread. In the last game against Appalachian State, the offense was elite scoring 80 points and that led to the easy victory. At halftime, South Carolina Upstate was up 39-30 and they held on in the second half to come away with the victory. USC Upstate is averaging 65.9 points while their defense is giving up 74.4 points per game.

South Alabama is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games overall. The under is 8-0 in South Alabama’s last eight games following an against the spread loss. USC Upstate is 8-2-1 against the spread in their last 11 games following an against the spread win. 

South Alabama played down to the competition a bit in the last game and it’s going to be no different in this game. I expect South Carolina is going to find offensive success and that is going to be the difference as South Alabama gets the job done. Back South Alabama against the spread. In terms of the score I expect the pace to be quick and the over is going to cash.
