Why Clemson can cover
Clemson head coach Brad Brownell entered the season on the hot seat, but his seat has cooled off following a 7-0 start to the campaign. The Tigers won a pair of road games last week, beating then-No. 23 Alabama in the ACC/SEC Challenge before beating Pittsburgh in their conference opener on Sunday. Syracuse grad transfer Joseph Girard III poured in 25 points in the 79-70 win over the Panthers.
Veteran center PJ Hall posted a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds, and he is averaging a team-high 21.4 points and 7.6 rebounds. Girard has been outstanding from beyond the arc, knocking down 23 of 33 field goals from 3-point range. Clemson is 18-2 in its last 20 home games, and it has won and covered in 12 of the last 18 meetings between these teams.
Why South Carolina can cover
South Carolina has been one of the most undervalued teams in the country since the end of last season, covering the spread in nine of its last 10 games. The Gamecocks knocked down a school-record 18 3-pointers in their 89-67 win over George Washington last Friday. They have held opponents to 32.5% shooting from the perimeter, so they are equipped to handle Clemson’s 3-point shooting.
Junior guard Meechie Johnson has led the team in scoring in three of the past four games, averaging a team-high 17.9 points per game. Senior forward B.J. Mack (16.7) and senior guard Myles Stute (10.3) are both scoring in double figures as well. The Gamecocks have covered the spread in six of their last seven games against ACC teams.
