It is the SEC opener for both teams and a critical game for the Bulldogs since they don’t want to start the NCAA football betting season at 0-2.
College football betting odds have Georgia as a 6 point favorite with a total of 37.5 at the sportsbook. South Carolina started the season last week with a 7-3 upset win in college football betting over NC State. Georgia is coming off a 24-10 loss in NCAA football betting against Oklahoma State last week. "I thought our boys played hard," said Georgia coach Mark Richt. "Looking forward to getting into SEC play. There's an awful lot to play for yet."
Last year it was Georgia winning against South Carolina 14-7. They lead the all-time series 45-14-2. If last week’s results in college football betting are any indication, this week’s game could be low scoring. Last week the Gamecocks had just 256 total yards as college football betting stats showed. "We're a struggling offensive team right now, but if we can get our guys going I think we have a chance to have a really good year," said head coach Steve Spurrier. The defense led the way last week for South Carolina, led by linebacker Eric Norwood. He had two sacks last week and tied for the team lead with eight total tackles. They could have success in college football betting this week against a Georgia team that had just 257 total yards against Oklahoma State. Georgia’s defense was solid as they held a potent Cowboys team to just 307 total yards.
