FSU basketball will take on South Carolina in a road non-conference game. Here is a look at the odds, how to watch, and a prediction.
FSU basketball (5-3, 0-1 ACC) is coming off a disappointing loss at home against Syracuse in their last outing. The Noles will have been out of action for over a week when they travel to take on South Carolina Sunday.
South Carolina (6-2) will be coming off of a week layoff as well, with their last appearance coming in a 13 point win over Georgetown.
FSU basketball vs. South Carolina Odds and Prediction
WynnBET’s updated odds have the Noles as a -4.5 point betting favorite on the road. The over/under point total is 139.5, implying a 72-68 type of game. South Carolina checks in at No. 102 in the latest KenPom rankings, and the Noles checked in at No. 39. Syracuse has the No. 172 ranked offense and the No. 55 defense. The Gamecocks average 71 ppg, and have four players averaging in double figures, while shooting 41.5 percent from the floor. They average 30.5 percent from three-point land and 66.9 percent from the charity stripe. They average 15 turnovers per game.
South Carolina only allows teams to shoot 37 percent from the floor on average, which ranks No. 29 nationally. However, I think FSU’s defense should be the difference in the game. The Gamecocks are awful offensively, and they don’t have guys that dominate the boards. Their leading rebounder only averages 6.8 per game, and the next closest guy checks in at five per game. FSU’s issues are on the offensive end, and hopefully, they ironed out some of their issues over the last week of practice. If they force turnovers and limit South Carolina on the offensive glass? I like FSU basketball to win and cover the spread.
Prediction: FSU 76, South Carolina 68
