Kickoff from Columbia is set for 3:30 PM ET. When these two teams hooked up last season, the Gamecocks upset the Bulldogs 16-12 as 3.5-point underdogs “between the hedges”. Georgia opened up the season as the #1 team in the country, and hasn’t done anything to take away from its argument that it’s the best team in the land even though its now ranked second behind USC.
Last week, Central Michigan played the role of sacrificial lamb. RB Knowshon Moreno racked up 168 yards on the ground to go with his three scores to lead the Bulldogs to a convincing 56-17 victory. It was an easy ‘W’ for Georgia football betting fans as the Bulldogs made a mockery of the fact that they were only 24-point favorites on the NCAA football betting line.
The Gamecocks weren’t nearly as lucky in their Week 2 showdown with the Vanderbilt Commodores. Vandy had never beaten an opponent ranked higher than #25 in the nation, but played a fantastic game against then #24 South Carolina on Thursday Night’s nationally televised game.
The Gamecocks looked primed to cover the 9.5-point football betting line at the break leading 10-3, but Vanderbilt stormed back with three unanswered touchdowns to grab a 24-10 lead in the fourth quarter. The ‘ol ball coach’s club rallied late to cut the lead to 24-17 but ultimately fell short handing college football betting followers backing USC their first loss of the season.
The Bulldogs have been tabbed 7.5-point favorites in this SEC duel. In their L/10 meetings dating back to 1998, the combined score has landed under the closing ‘total’ and averaged just 27.9 PPG. A position on the under might just be one of the best investments of the weekend!
