Missouri vs South Carolina Prediction & Pick
South Carolina coach Shane Beamer learned the importance of special teams from his dad Frank at Virginia Tech. The Gamecocks had a kickoff return TD in last week's win, and SC has already blocked five kicks this season. South Carolina has a huge special teams advantage in this match-up, and the Gamecocks defense has improved during the 4-game winning streak against weaker offenses allowing just 24, 14, 10 and 20 points,
The Missouri offense ranks second to last in the SEC averaging 24 points per game and has scored 22, 17, 17 and 14 points in SEC play and 12 points against their other SEC opponent. South Carolina's offense will go through RB Marshawn Lloyd, who has rushed for 526 yards and 9 TD's including 202 yards and 3 TD's the last two games with more attempts. Gamecocks QB Spencer Rattler has just 5 TD passes and 8 INT's, and against three better SEC defenses, his most productive game was 177 passing yards against Kentucky.
Missouri QB Brady Cook has a high of 220 passing yards in four SEC games with just 2 TD passes and 4 INT's in those games, and the Tigers offense will be fortunate if they reach 300 total yards offense.
Final Score Prediction: South Carolina: 20 | Missouri: 17

Missouri vs South Carolina Best Bet

The Mizzou defense has been terrific while generating pressure and solid on third downs. The Tigers defense has held up well against four SEC opponents including in a 26-22 loss to No. 1 Georgia. The South Carolina offense has turned the ball over at least a couple times each game, and the Gamecocks are 5-0 when coming up with a turnover, and 0-2 when they don't.
Missouri's turnovers have been far more costly in defeat, but if you project a cleaner game, this one should be close.
Bet: Under 47.5 (-110)
