Chris Silva hit a go-ahead dunk with 2.5 seconds left following a full-court pass to lift South Carolina to a 71-69 win at Florida in its SEC opener Saturday night. The Gamecocks outscored the Gators 39-33 in the second half to rally back. Hassani Gravett paced USC with 22 points off the bench on 7-of-11 shooting including 4-of-7 from 3-point range and 4-of-5 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Mississippi State

The under is 5-1 in the last six Bulldogs road games. The under is 6-2 in the last eight MSU games following an ATS win.

South Carolina

The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings in South Carolina. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall.

Prediction:

The Bulldogs have scored at least 98 points in two of their last three games, while last year's meeting at South Carolina ended in an 81-76 score. That would be plenty enough to hit the over. I don't want to fade the MSU offense right now and USC's offense should benefit from being at home. Go with the over tonight.
