Freshman Jabari Smith scored 21 points, transfer K.D. Johnson had 18 and No. 5 Auburn won the championship outright with an 82-71 victory over South Carolina on Saturday.

The Tigers (27-4, 15-3 SEC) secured the No. 1 seed for next week's league tournament in Tampa, Florida, after entering the day one game up on No. 7 Kentucky, No. 13 Tennessee and No. 14 Arkansas.

Since 2016, Auburn is an impressive 69-11 Straight Up (86.3%) in non-conference games. 

As a favorite they are 115-24 Straight Up (82.7%) since 2016.

The 26-7 Trojans were beaten by UCLA in the Pac-12 semifinals Friday night.

Southern California covered around 48% of their games this season and truly struggled down the stretch covering in just three of their final ten games.  They lost three of their last four outright.

As a favorite Southern California is 121-22 (84.6%) Straight Up since 2016.  On the road as a favorite they are 25-6 SU over this time.

What could hurt USC here is that they are just 5-21 (19.2%) Straight Up against ranked opponents since 2016.

Go with Auburn on the moneyline here.
