Why Bet on the South Carolina Gamecocks Line at +24.5
Why bet on South Carolina in this contest? The best two reasons are that they’re playing their best football of the season and second they’re getting a ton of points!
The Gamecocks have won three straight and four of their last five games and come into this matchup off a 34-27 win over Vanderbilt last weekend. Quarterback Jake Bentley threw for 174 yards and one touchdown in the win while running back A.J. Turner rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Bentley also added two rushing scores in the win as South Carolina topped the 30-point plateau for the fourth time this season.
Why Bet on the Georgia Bulldogs Line at -24.5
Why bet the on the unbeaten Bulldogs? Well, because they’re just crushing people this season, that’s why! The Dogs smashed Florida 42-7 last weekend to cover the chalk as 13-point home favorites while effectively ending the career of now, former Gators head coach Jim McElwain all at the same time.
Quarterback Jake Fromm had a modest game with 101 passing yards and one TD pass and one interception but running backs Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and Elijah Holyfield combined to rush for 263 yards and four scores on just 23 combined carries. Georgia’s stout defense forced three sacks and an interception and recovered one fumble in the dominating victory.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
I’m really loving the way second-ranked Georgia is playing right now, but I’m thinking that South Carolina has just enough in them to cover the huge spread in this contest. The Gamecocks have gone 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.
Despite their fantastic season, Georgia is just 2-4 ATS in their last half-dozen home games and 5-10-2 ATS in their last 15 games against South Carolina. Georgia gets the win at home no doubt, but I’m backing South Carolina to cover the spread by the slimmest of margins!
Pick: South Carolina +24.5
