The time to fade Vanderbilt is now. The fact the Commodores enter this contest riding high off a 30-point win over Auburn bodes extremely well for us. Consider that Vandy is just 14-34 ATS in its last 48 games following a win by 10 points or more over a conference rival. The Dores have lost by an average of 3.8 points in these games.
South Carolina has won 2 of the last 3 in this series, including an 8-point home win last season. It is worth noting that Vanderbilt was a 5.5-point favorite in that game.
The Gamecocks are experienced (return 4 starters) and battle tested (already played N. Carolina, Ohio St., Kentucky). They are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 lines games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning record. Also, the underdog is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in this series. Take the points.
