The Gamecocks outscored the Aggies 42-34 in the second half to pull away. Jair Bolden led USC with 19 points off the bench on 7-of-12 shooting including 5-of-7 from 3-point range.

College Basketball Betting Trends

South Carolina

The Gamecocks are 5-0 ATS in their last five road games. South Carolina is 5-1 ATS in its last six Wednesday games.

Auburn

The Tigers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The favorite is 6-17 ATS in the last 23 meetings.

Prediction:

The Tigers are difficult to trust right now, especially since they were never quite as good as their undefeated record suggested prior to the last two setbacks. I see this spread a little too wide tonight. The series was split last season, with Auburn winning by nine at home. While USC has its own issues, it is also playing with a lot of confidence since the win over Kentucky. I'd rather take the points here on the team playing better ball at the moment.
