The South Carolina Gamecocks meet the Kentucky Wildcats and Saturday in week 4 college football action at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia. The Kentucky Wildcats look for their first 4-0 start since the 2018 CFB season. The South Carolina Gamecocks look for a win to improve to 3-1 on the season.

The Kentucky Wildcats have lost their last three road games. Will Levis is completing 64.6 percent of his passes for 800 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Wan’Dale Robinson and Josh Ali have combined for 556 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Isaiah Epps has five receptions. The Kentucky Wildcats ground game is averaging 196 yards per contest, and Chris Rodriguez Jr. leads the way with 377 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Kentucky is allowing 20.3 points and 275 yards per game. DeAndre Square leads the Kentucky Wildcats with 17 tackles, J.J. Weaver has three sacks and Jacquez Jones has one interception.

The South Carolina Gamecocks have lost four of their last six home games. Zeb Noland is completing 57.4 percent of his passes for 407 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. Josh Vann and Jalen Brooks have combined for 354 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Jaheim Bell has four receptions. The South Carolina Gamecocks ground game is averaging 151.3 yards per contest, and ZaQuandre White leads the way with 167 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, South Carolina is allowing 19 points and 287.7 yards per game. Jaylan Foster leads the South Carolina Gamecocks with 15 tackles, Kingsley Enagbare has 2.5 sacks and Jordan Burch has one interception.

The Wildcats are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Gamecocks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Wildcats last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Gamecocks last 5 home games. The Wildcats are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

The Kentucky Wildcats have one of their more talented teams in school history and they’ve shown a balanced attack through three games, which includes a top-30 team in total offense and total defense. The South Carolina Gamecocks just got rocked by Georgia last week, and while Kentucky aren’t the Bulldogs, the Gamecocks inability to finish drives offensively isn’t a good sign moving forward. Kentucky is a good football team that beat South Carolina 41-18 back in December. I’ll lay the reasonable chalk.
