The Gamecocks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games in September. The Bulldogs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Gamecocks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Georgia and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings overall.
South Carolina has beaten Georgia in four of the last five meetings and has won twice in Athens since 2007. Yes, the Gamecocks just lost to Kentucky and Georgia is the better overall team. However, this is a heated divison battle and both teams are going to show up. This won't be a blowout.
Give me the points.
