South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Texas A&M Aggies Predictions

The South Carolina Gamecocks are having an impressive season, boasting a strong 22-5 overall record and a 10-4 mark in conference play. They come into this game with momentum, having won their last outing and looking to solidify their standing in the SEC. The Gamecocks’ offense, averaging 71.8 points per game, is powered by forward B.J. Mack, who leads the team with 13.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. Guard Ta’Lon Cooper’s playmaking abilities will also be crucial, as he averages 4.2 assists per game.

On the other side, the Texas A&M Aggies are aiming to rebound from recent setbacks that have left them with a 15-12 overall record and a 6-8 record in the SEC. The Aggies will rely heavily on guard Wade Taylor IV, who is a key offensive threat averaging 18.8 points and 3.9 assists per game. Forward Andersson Garcia will be pivotal on the boards, pulling down 9.4 rebounds per game. Texas A&M’s defense, which allows 73.2 points per game, will need to step up against South Carolina’s efficient scoring.

This matchup will likely hinge on the battle inside the paint, where both teams have shown strengths and weaknesses throughout the season. The Aggies’ ability to control the offensive glass and convert second-chance points could be a deciding factor, while the Gamecocks’ overall shooting efficiency, including a 34.2% mark from beyond the arc, could help them maintain their winning ways. As both teams prepare for the SEC Tournament, this game could have significant implications for their seeding and momentum going forward.

South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Texas A&M Aggies Pick

The South Carolina Gamecocks come into this matchup with a stronger overall record and a better performance against the spread this season compared to the Texas A&M Aggies. With a 19-8 ATS record and a 9-2 ATS record on the road, the Gamecocks have demonstrated consistency and resilience in away games. Additionally, their recent form, including a one-game winning streak and an 8-2 record in their last 10 games, suggests they have the momentum to overcome the Aggies, who are on a two-game losing streak and have struggled to cover the spread with a 6-9 ATS record at home.

While Texas A&M has the home-court advantage and a strong player in Wade Taylor IV, South Carolina’s balanced attack and efficient scoring, led by B.J. Mack, give them the edge. The Gamecocks’ ability to spread the floor with their three-point shooting, combined with their solid defense, should help them counter the Aggies’ offensive rebounds and second-chance points. Considering the odds and the Gamecocks’ impressive ATS record, a moneyline bet on South Carolina is the more compelling choice for this SEC showdown.

The Pick: South Carolina Gamecocks +175 (BetRivers)
