South Carolina has been playing poorly as of late. Even in wins, they are keeping games close. Arkansas has actually won three of its last five on the road and a good enough team to stay with South Carolina. Since the Gamecocks don’t score a lot of points, it opens the door for opponents to stay competitive. I like Arkansas with the points tonight.
