Shane’s Free Pick
South Carolina is going to have no issue in this game. DePaul is giving up 73 points per game and they are going to have some major issues slowing down South Carolina here. The Gamecocks are going to really try to make a statement and they are going to do that here with their offense. Back South Carolina against the spread.
