When it comes to the public betting in this afternoon’s game, the wagers are siding with the underdog. Of the bets place, South Carolina is getting 59 percent of the public wagers while getting 3 points against Florida.
South Carolina has been the hot team, beating the likes of Duke and Baylor in their last two games as an underdog. The Gamecocks have looked as smooth as any team in the region, scoring at least 70 points in all three games. The Gamecocks haven’t been great against the spread this season, but have covered in all three games of the NCAA Tournament.
Florida is coming off an emotional OT win over Wisconsin on Friday and the Gators are 2-0-1 against the spread in the tournament, but bettors may fear the toll that was taken on Florida in the win over the Badgers. The game concluded less than 36 hours ago and could lead to some tired legs for Florida. Florida was also held to just 53 points in the first meeting with South Carolina this season, so the Gamecocks could have an effective defensive scheme to stop Florida today.
