No. 18 Tennessee hosts South Carolina on Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Volunteers are massive favorites, but they had their six-game winning streak snap in a bad loss at Alabama last time out. However, the Gamecocks have now lost five straight games.

Silva struggles again, makes just 4-of-12 from the field

South Carolina’s season has been spiraling over the last few weeks, and they may have hit rock bottom in their last contest against Florida at home. They faltered in an awful 65-41 showing. They hit just 27.8 percent of their shots in the game and converted just 2-of-13 attempts from 3-point range. The Gamecocks have been held to 61 ppg over their last five contests.

The starters were limited to just 19 total points combined in the game. Frank Booker came off the bench and led the team with 17 points. In 31 minutes of action, he hit 6-of-13 from the field overall and made 3-of-4 from the charity stripe. He made just 2-of-7 from downtown. Part of USC’s struggles are thanks to Chris Silva (14.3 ppg) having his own problems. He’s been held to under his season average in the last three games and had 30 total points in that stretch.

Volunteers suffer strange blowout at Alabama

Tennessee remains tied for second in the SEC with an 8-4 conference record. They had six straight wins before running into a buzzsaw at Alabama, 78-50. It was a puzzling result for the team as they were held to just 27.6 percent from the field and only made 16 field goals — the Crimson Tide made double that amount. They also had just 7 assists to 12 turnovers.

One player hit double figures in the scoring column, and that was Grant Williams (15.9 ppg) with 16 points. It could have been more, but he made just 5-of-12 from the field overall. His total was boosted by making 6-of-7 from the foul line. The next highest scorer on the team was Admiral Schofield, who finished with seven points and seven rebounds. He went just 2-for-8 from the field overall.

Trends

South Carolina is:

  • 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 road games  
  • 0-4 in their last 4 SEC games

Tennessee is:

  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games
  •  7-3 ATS in their last 10 SEC games

Is the blowout loss at Alabama a sign of bad things to come for Tennessee? It’s hard to make that conclusion and the Crimson Tide are very good on defense lately. Meanwhile, the Gamecocks have been outscored by 15 points on average in their last five games.

Pick: Tennessee

Tennessee’s offense has been limited to just 111 total points in their last two road games. They return home to a place where the under has hit in 6 of their 10 total games. Both teams have hit the under frequently this season, and with their slumping offenses, it’s easily the way to go.

  • Under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings
  • Under is 7-2 in Volunteers last 9 overall

Pick: Under
