South Carolina gets big win on the road against Vanderbilt.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: South Carolina -2
South Carolina is coming off of an embarrassing loss to Georgia and now have to travel on the road to face a competitive Vanderbilt squad that has gone 3-0 ATS.
Vanderbilt played Notre Dame hard and if it weren’t for a crucial turnover on the one yard line, they could be undefeated right now.
I do like Vanderbilt in this spot, but South Carolina should come into this one focused and hyped to face a South Carolina team that they’ve gone 9-1 against in their last 10.
South Carolina has also gone 5-0 ATS on the road meaning coach Muschamp gets his teams ready for road contests.
I’ll back the Gamecocks despite the unfavorable line drop.
