The No. 9 Auburn Tigers picked themselves up a huge victory to open SEC play last week and will look to keep that momentum forward tonight when visiting the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Auburn (12-1, 1-0 SEC) made a statement opening conference play last Wednesday when dominating previously undefeated LSU for a 70-55 victory. The Blue and Orange Tigers led throughout the contest and held their counterparts from Baton Rouge to just 26.1% shooting from the field. Walker Kessler had a fantastic outing for Auburn, putting up a triple double with 16 points, 11 blocks, and 10 rebounds.

South Carolina (9-3) is participating in its first SEC game tonight and will be in action for the first time in nearly two weeks. It last defeated Army 105-75 on December 22, a game where Devin Carter provided 22 points off the bench.

The Pick

Auburn -10.5

Auburn is 9-4 against the spread this season and has mostly handled business against the lower ranked opponents on its schedule. South Carolina is rated 184th in adjusted offensive efficiency and will most likely struggle against Auburn’s extremely tough defense, preventing them from being able to keep pace. Lay the points with the Tigers.
