South Carolina football hasn’t lost to Missouri since the 2015 season.
But Las Vegas has the Gamecocks as a healthy underdog against the Tigers this Saturday.
The line opened Sunday at Missouri by 10. It dipped down to 8 1/2, and as of Monday at 10 a.m., the Tigers were favored by 9 1/2 in the VegasInsider consensus line. The over/under for the game is 63 1/2.
This year, the Gamecocks are 2-1 against the spread and 1-2 overall. They lost as a 11 1/2-point favorite to UNC and got a late cover of a 26 1/2-point spread against Alabama.
The Tigers are also 2-1 against the spread. They got upset in their opener by Wyoming, but turned around to beat West Virginia 38-7 and an FCS team 50-0.
Last year’s meeting between the teams was a tight affair, one where turnovers made the difference in sloppy conditions. USC has been outgained in each of the past three meetings, but won by a combined 30 points.
