Why Bet The South Carolina Gamecocks Odds at +3.5

Well damn, there’s plenty of good reason to back South carolina to upset Baylor starting with the fact tht the Gamecocks manhandled No. 2 Duke in their stunning 88-81 second round win over the Blue Devils.

South Carolina stormed back from a 31-24 halftime deficit to score a whopping  65 points in the second half. Sindarius Thornwell led the way with a team-high 24 points while adding 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and a steal in the win. The Gamecocks have the edge in scoring and fewer turnovers against Baylor.

Why Bet The Baylor Bears Odds at -3.5

The third-seeded Baylor Bears routed New Mexico State in their opener and got past USC 82-78 in the second round by going on a late 11-5 run to hold off the Trojans. Johnathan Motley led Baylor with a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Baylor has the edge in their Sweet 16 matchup in field goal shooting percentage, free throw shooting, defense, rebounding and banch production.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

61 percent of the betting public likes Baylor to get the win and ATS cover and I believe that is the right call with South Carolina going 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games following an SU win.

Baylor has gone 7-2 ATS in their last nine non-conference games and has been sharing the ball better than they have all season since the start of the NCAA tournament as evidenced by the fact that they  got double digit scoring from five players in their tourney opener while placing four players in double digits against the Trojans the last time out.

My final score prediction is Baylor 83 South Carolina 76
