Why South Carolina can cover
South Carolina is playing its best football of the season, rattling off three consecutive wins at home to get within one victory of bowl eligibility. The Gamecocks have won two of those games by double digits, and they also won a close contest against Kentucky as 2-point favorites last week. Quarterback Spencer Rattler has thrown for nearly 1,000 total yards and seven touchdowns during that stretch.
The Gamecocks are 5-1 at home this season, and they took down Clemson on the road last season. Star wide receiver Antwane Wells Jr. practiced last week and could play on Saturday, which would be his first game action since Week 3. South Carolina has been excellent in the final week of the regular season, covering the spread at an 11-4 clip in its last 15 games in Week 13.
Why Clemson can cover
While Clemson might not be playing in the ACC title game this season, the Tigers still have plenty of motivation heading into this contest. They lost to South Carolina in a stunning upset, snapping a seven-game winning streak in the series. Clemson has won three straight games this season, beating then-No. 15 Notre Dame and then-No. 20 North Carolina during that stretch.
Sophomore quarterback Cade Klubnik threw for 219 yards and a touchdown last week, while running back Will Shipley rushed for 126 yards and a score. Shipley has combined with running mate Phil Mafah for more than 1,500 rushing yards this season, with both backs averaging more than five yards per carry. Clemson has covered the spread in four of the last six meetings between these teams. See which team to pick here.
