South Carolina An ATS Machine In Gainesville

If the South Carolina Gamecocks want to prove they belong among the SEC elite, they will need to pick up a win when they visit the Florida Gators on Tuesday. The Gamecocks have always been a success for bettors in Gainesville, as South Carolina is 9-1 ATS in its past 10 games visiting the Florida Gators.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 3 of the past 4 games between South Carolina and Florida.
  • South Carolina is 0-5 ATS in its past 5 games.
  • Florida is 11-0 SU and ATS in its last 11 games as a favorite of 9.5 or less.

The Gamecocks have hit a bit of a skid recently, with losses in three of their past four against some mediocre competition. South Carolina’s often-praised defense has fallen apart during this stretch of poor play, as the Gamecocks are allowing 79.3 ppg compared with their season average of 64.1. You can’t blame star Sindarius Thornwell for not doing his part, as the senior has averaged 30 points in the past four, which includes a ridiculous 44-point, 21-rebound performance against Alabama.

Florida will look for its ninth straight victory on Tuesday night. During the Gators’ eight-game winning streak, they have posted an average scoring margin of plus-21.6 points per game. The most impressive performance was Florida’s 88-66 victory over Kentucky, in which the team notched a ridiculous 54 rebounds.
