SEC action tips on Saturday as the South Carolina Gamecocks visit the Georgia Bulldogs. Both teams hope to snap lengthy conference losing streaks as little more than pride is at stake here.
South Carolina Gamecocks
Heading into the season’s final stretch, South Carolina’s dark horse NCAA Tournament hopes have ended with a current three-game losing streak. The Gamecocks couldn’t overcome recent challenges from Mississippi State, Tennessee or Kentucky.
South Carolina did cover a 10.5-point spread vs. the Wildcats on Tuesday, however. The Gamecocks are now 4-6 in SEC play and could secure an NIT berth for this March with a few more wins.
Before their season-defining losses, South Carolina rode three straight wins, started by an 83-66 romp over visiting UGA. Erik Stevenson (20 Pts) and Keyshawn Bryant (19) gave their side enough fuel while helping keep the ‘Dawgs at 39% shooting. The Gamecocks out rebounded Georgia 37-31 and forced 18 turnovers to secure victory.
On Saturday, much less is asked of the Gamecocks to cover a thin -2.5 spread in their favor.
South Carolina averages 98.3 points per 100 possessions and allows 95.7. The Gamecocks shoot 42/31/65% and use their interior length to hold opponents to 41% shooting.
The Georgia Bulldogs are a competitive team with little to show for it in the win column. The Bulldogs rank last among all SEC groups with a 1-10 conference record. While UGA men’s football is national king, the school’s basketball program has lost 12 of its last 13 starts.
In the betting world, however, Georgia has been on a roll. Since claiming its lone straight-up SEC win vs. Alabama, UGA has won four of five ATS to dig pay dirt for its backers.
Behind Kario Oquendo’s 22 points, the Bulldogs beat a 14.5-point spread on Wednesday vs. Florida. Simply, any group coached by Tom Crean will battle from horn to horn.
Saturday, from the Steg, Georgia has a decent shot to grab another conference W vs. unsteady South Carolina.
Overall, the Bulldogs average 100.4 points per 100 possessions and allow 109.4. UGA’s defense is among college basketball’s leakiest. Although, Crean’s bunch has offered more offense of late while showing respectable defensive stretches.
The Bulldogs shoot 44/31/74%, and other teams have little issue returning accurate fire Georgia’s way.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Gamecocks are 4-2 ATS in their last six games overall.
- Gamecocks are 6-3-0 ATS in day games this season.
- Gamecocks are 2-0 ATS as a 1-2.5 point favorite this season.
- Gamecocks are 3-0 ATS in their last three games vs. Georgia.
- Bulldogs are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
- Bulldogs are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400.
Free South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Georgia Bulldogs NCAAB Betting Prediction:
As high as I’ve been on Georgia lately, I’m even higher on this -2.5 South Carolina line. Both teams have played well ATS of late, but the Gamecocks have too much interior size for the Bulldogs to handle from home.
While South Carolina won’t rout UGA 83-66 this Saturday like they did in the teams’ previous meeting, the ‘Cocks will show they are a competitive notch above hard-luck UGA.
Take South Carolina at a steal price to win ATS vs. Georgia.
