NCAA Football Betting: SC Gamecocks vs. Kentucky Wildcats

Last week, the Gamecocks kept their slim NCAA football betting SEC East Title hopes alive and will travel to Lexington to face Wildcats (4-1 SU, 3-1 ATS).

This game will virtually eliminate the loser from SEC title contention. The Gamecocks (4-2 SU, 2-2-1 ATS) are coming off of a 31-24 win against Mississippi after posting a winless September against the football betting line. The Wildcats return home after a very close 17-14 loss to Alabama that would have been their first victory ever against the Crimson Tide in Alabama.

The Gamecocks did not have a great start to conference play, losing by seven to Vanderbilt and Georgia before registering their first win against Mississippi last week. QB Chris Smelley may have won the starting job permanently with his 22/32 327 yard and three touchdowns against one interception performance on Saturday.

The Gamecock defense was also solid once again, forcing three turnovers from the Rebels and hosting Ole Miss to three second half points. However, the 55 combined points led to the team’s streak of five straight games going under the ‘total’ per the NCAA betting odds to be snapped.

Bettors who wager on college football moneylines might find it interesting to note that Steve Spurrier is 15-0 all-time SU against the Wildcats. Kentucky comes into this game having played all of their games under the ‘total’ by the college football wagering lines thanks in part to a stout defense that is only surrendering 7.8 PPG.

Against the Crimson Tide, they forced three turnovers and three sacks to keep the Wildcats close until the end. Also, last week QB Mike Hartline looked very impressive in the loss throwing for 241 yards and two touchdowns against one interception on the day. The Wildcats have failed to cover their last three meetings against South Carolina for NCAA football gamblers.

Right now, the NCAA lines have the game as a pick ‘em and the ‘total’ for the game at 38 points. Sportsbook is the best place to bet this game and the best place for college football betting in 2008.

With their great lines and friendly service, they are becoming a favorite for many bettors. Don’t delay, sign up today!
