9:00 pm EST tonight there is an SEC basketball showdown in Knoxville . #18 Tennessee is hosting conference foe South Carolina. The point spread has Tennessee favored by 10.5 points. The total is 136 points.

The line was issued at Tennessee -12.5 but has since been bet down to -10.5 points. Since then betting has stabilized. 55% of bettors are now on Tennessee.

Tennessee is ranked and for very good reason. They are 18-6 straight up and 14-8 against the spread. They average 76 points on offense and only allow 67 PPG. They just lost to Alabama on Saturday by an embarrassing 28 points. The offensive performance was sporadic and lackluster. Forward Grant Williams was the leading scorer with 16 points, playing only 24 minutes. If Tennessee is to beat South Carolina tonight they will need more consistency.

South Carolina is 13-12 SU and just 10-14 ATS. They had a pretty good season going for themselves until this most recent skid. They have dropped five games in a row, most recently getting stomped at home by Florida 65-41, the same team they just beat on January 24th. Some infighting really has the team playing horribly.

Head to head Tennessee holds the slight advantage at 6-4. The last game they played was just a few weeks ago and Tennessee is actually part of the Gamecocks current losing streak. Tennessee won that game at South Carolina by 7 points.

Some trends to consider:
South Carolina is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games
South Carolina is 2-6 ATS in its last 8 games on the road
South Carolina is 4-8 ATS in its last 12 games when playing Tennessee
South Carolina is 4-17 SU in its last 21 games when playing Tennessee

You can read the writing on the wall here. You have a failing team that is on a downward spiral and one that is good and just got beat and are looking to avenge a loss. I wouldn't be surprised of Tennessee won by 20 points in this one. I am taking Tennessee -10.5 points.
