The #1 scoring offense in the country takes its show on the road Tuesday night when Kentucky (14-3) visits South Carolina (15-3). The Wildcats put up 91.6 ppg, but the Gamecocks are poised for the upset following one of their most complete games of the season on Saturday in a 77-64 win at Arkansas where SC led start to finish and picked up the victory as +2.5 underdogs.

Before Betting on #6 Wildcats vs South Carolina NCAAB

It’s not very often that teams get to retool during the season, but the #6 Wildcats added some nice interior size this week when Zvonimir Ivisic was ruled eligible on Saturday. The 7’2″ freshman from Croatia made an immediate impact in his collegiate debut, scoring 13 points in 16 minutes on 5-7 shooting.

The rich get richer with Kentucky adding even more scoring in “Big Z.” UK had their third 100+ point game of the season on Saturday and already had five other players average in double figures before the addition of Ivisic led by Antonio Reeves and his 19.5 ppg.

South Carolina is going to have to find some offense on Tuesday night, but Kentucky will give it up with their tempo – allowing two of the last three opponents to tally 96+ points. Meechie Johnson (16.7 ppg) should be in for a big night but he’ll obviously need some help.

Wildcats vs South Carolina NCAAB Prediction & Pick

Could there be an upset in the making in Columbia? The line of -4.5 points looks on the low side for a Kentucky team that scores as much as they do, but South Carolina is also 9-1 at home this season. Eight straight UK games have gone ‘over’ the total, and that looks like the best bet in this matchup.
