South Carolina +14.5 over Missouri

South Carolina vs. Missouri, 01/22/2013 19:00
Point Spread: +14½/-107 South Carolina

Missouri is coming off a huge 31 point loss at Florida and now has to deal with allegations that their head coach, Frank Haith, was involved in NCAA violations while at Miami. It might be tough for this Tigers team to get focused on a South Carolina team that hasn't proved themselves to be very good this season.

The Gamecocks are coming off a seven point home loss to Vanderbilt in which they were favored by four, but that actually sets them up for a good situation here tonight. You want to play on double digit road underdogs who are coming off an upset loss as a favorite. These teams are 131-78 (62.7%) since 1997.

South Carolina has played two games on the road in conference play and covered them both, losing by a bucket at Mississippi State and winning by nine outright as double digits dogs v. LSU. Missouri has played well at home this year, but the value is with the big dog.
