The South Carolina Gamecocks won their opening game against UNC but they are coming off of a loss last week at home to Kentucky. The South Carolina offense is averaging 19.5 points and 405.5 yards per game but that hasn’t been good enough. Gamecock starting QB Connor Mitch is out so it will ironically be Georgia transfer Perry Orth who gets the start. Brandon Wilds leads the South Carolina running game averaging 5.2 yards per carry and Pharoh Cooper is the Gamecocks leading receiver with 12 catches. The South Carolina defense is allowing 19.5 points and 405.5 yards per game with 5 sacks and four interceptions. Skai Moore leads the South Carolina defense with 19 tackles, Jonathan Walton has 15 tackles, and Isaiah Johnson has 14 tackles. South Carolina has a lot to prove and we just can’t be sure which team is going to show up.
Georgia is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 5-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 5-12-1 against the spread following a win. South Carolina is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven SEC games, 3-7 against the spread following a loss, and 2-7 against the spread in September. South Carolina is 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games against Georgia.
This is WAY too many points for a rivalry this deep so my free pick here is South Carolina.
