South Carolina vs. Florida Pick

South Carolina vs. Florida College Basketball Predictions 1/24/18

Will No. 20 Florida keep rolling along in the SEC when it plays host to South Carolina tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Florida is favored at home tonight, as the Gators are getting odds of -10.5 points against South Carolina. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 140.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Exactech Arena in Gainesville, Florida and will air live on the SEC Network.

Florida is off to a 6-1 start in SEC play following a big 66-64 win at Kentucky this past weekend. The Gators are 14-5 overall and 10-8 against the spread. They have covered in five of their last six games. Florida is averaging 81.2 points per game on offense this season while allowing 72.1 per contest on defense. Jalen Hudson is leading Florida with 16.5 points per game while Egor Koulechov is adding 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per contest.

South Carolina is coming off a 70-63 loss at home against Tennessee this weekend. The Gamecocks are now 12-7 overall, 3-4 in the SEC and 8-9-1 against the spread. South Carolina is putting up 70.6 points per game this season while allowing 66.7 per contest on defense. Chris Silva is leading South Carolina with 14.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game while Frank Booker is adding 11.3 points per contest.

Bet on South Carolina vs. Florida

South Carolina has won and covered in three of its last four meetings with Florida. This will be the first meeting between the two this season. Florida is coming off a big win, but will the Gators have an emotional letdown following beating Kentucky on the road? However, South Carolina hasn’t shown much consistency all season. The Gamecocks are capable of covering tonight, but they have had some really poor showings on the road and Florida seems to be snapping into place in SEC play. The Gators may be making another big run through the conference. The public betting is backing Florida today, and I agree with them.
