Against the Spread Pick

The Georgia Bulldogs should be 4-0 in their last four games. Instead, they are 1-3 with three blown double-digit leads–with all of those leads coming in the second halves of games. Georgia led Missouri by 13 points with less than seven minutes remaining and Florida by 23 in the second half. Missouri trailed by 12 during the second 20 minutes of action on Saturday before coming back to stun the Bulldogs in double-overtime. Although that is by no means good, you have to think such competitiveness will translate into some more wins sooner rather than later. Victory is certainly a possibility against the South Carolina Gamecocks, whose most recent road trip resulted in a 14-point loss to Ole Miss. Justin Minaya (7.8 ppg in a team-high 30.4 mpg) is out indefinitely due to a thumb injury. The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last five following an ATS loss and 11-2 in their last 13 after allowing more than 90 points in their previous outing. Go with GEORGIA.

Over Under Pick

No one on the Gamecocks is averaging more than 13.7 ppg (A.J. Lawson). They are turning the ball over 13.5 times per game and shooting a disastrous 61.7 percent from the free-throw line. The under is 4-1 in the Gamecocks’ last five against opponents with winning records. It is also 4-1 in the Bulldogs’ last five against opponents with winning records and 16-7 in their last 23 after scoring more than 90 points in their previous outing. Look for this one to stay UNDER the total.
