South Carolina vs Auburn Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this game with 13-5 conference records and they are playing great basketball right now. Auburn has won four of their last five games, while South Carolina has won five of their last six. Auburn did win the lone regular season meeting with South Carolina by a score of 101-61, but I think we are going to see a much closer game here. Auburn is scoring over 83 points per game and they are shooting 47.3% from the field, but South Carolina has scored at least 80 points in three of their last four games. I think this game could go either way, so I like the Gamecocks with the points.
