Against the Spread Pick
Avoid this game like the plague until the status of three contributing players for the South Carolina Gamecocks have their statuses determined. Justin Minaya (thumb), Keyshawn Bryant (knee), and Jalyn McCreary (knee) are all questionable for Wednesday’s date with the Ole Miss Rebels. The good news for South Carolina is that it is riding a three-game winning streak while boasting a 5-1 record in its past six contests. The Rebels, on the other hand, are a disastrous 1-8 in their past nine outings. They are turning the ball over 13.7 times per game and shooting just 31.6 percent from three-point range. The Gamecocks are 6-1 ATS in their last seven overall, 6-1 ATS in their last seven on the road, and 6-1 ATS in their last seven on the road against opponents with winning home records. Ole Miss is 1-3-1 ATS in its last five at home. Lean toward SOUTH CAROLINA.
Over Under Pick
Ole Miss’ offensive woes are well-documented. This squad has scored fewer than 50 points twice during its current 1-8 stretch. It has scored 63 or less in its past three regulation games. South Carolina held Missouri to 54 points last weekend. The under is 3-1-1 in the Rebels’ last five against opponents with winning records, 7-3 in their last 10 at home against opponents with road winning percentages over .600, and 4-1 in their last five following a loss. Take the UNDER.
