South Carolina Gamecocks vs Houston Cougars. The NCAAB pick is the Houston Cougars. Houston’s run for this season is great and they are owing their success to their strong defensive lineup. They haven’t allowed a team to go past 60 points at this point. They took out a higher ranking team in the Red Raiders to keep their streak alive. The Gamecocks’ offense will not be strong enough to cut through Houston’s defense. Houston will get their 4th win after dealing with South Carolina to a predicted score of 76-66.
