This Year’s Palmetto Bowl Will Have Major Implications

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:44:35 AM

For the first time in the 111-year history of their rivalry, the No. 6 Clemson Tigers and No. 10 South Carolina Gamecocks will clash as top-10 opponents this week in an online sports betting contest that will have major implications. The “Palmetto Bowl” has never been bigger. The No. 6 Tigers are one game back of undefeated Florida State as they wrap up their ACC season, and have struggled against South Carolina in recent years after dominating this rivalry for more than a decade. The 10th-ranked Gamecocks have won the last four meetings in this series, and will be looking to make it five-straight for the first time in history as they sit one game back Missouri in the SEC East.

College Football Sports Betting Line: South Carolina – 5.5

A double-overtime win over Missouri means that South Carolina is technically still alive in the SEC East, as their rivals get set to face Texas A&M with kickoff less than an hour after this game begins. The Gamecocks own the tiebreaker in the SEC East, but have to get the job done this week and hope for a little help from the Aggies to earn a berth in the SEC Championship game.

College Football Betting Preview: Clemson

Clemson has won more bowl games than South Carolina has even played in, and they dominated this rivalry for more than a decade before losing the last four-straight. The Tigers have never lost five-in-a-row in this online betting series, and they have looked almost perfect since losing to Florida State earlier in the season. Clemson has won each of its last four games by double digits, including a 52-6 blowout win over Citadel in its final preparation for this showdown. The Tigers won’t catch the Seminoles in the ACC, but they still have a lot to play for with major bowl implications on the line. Senior quarterback Tajh Boyd won’t get his shot at a national title, but he can improve his NFL Draft stock with a couple of big performances to finish off his college career.

Sophomore running back Mike Davis will have had a full two weeks off before he takes the field this week for another big game. The SEC’s leading rusher sat out of last week’s win over Coastal Carolina along with defensive linemen Jadeveon Clowney and Kelcy Quarles, so they should be ready for this week’s showdown. Senior quarterback Connor Shaw is already the winningest quarterback in South Carolina history, and he can top the 2,000-yard passing mark this week. Shaw has thrown 20 touchdowns compared to just one interception, and his efficiency is just as important as his ability to move the ball. The Gamecocks’ defense ranks 20th in the nation with an average of just 20.3 points per game allowed, and this will be their toughest test since the double-overtime win over Missouri.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

South Carolina has dominated this rivalry for the last four years and will look to make history with home field advantage and a lot to play for this week. The Gamecocks can still earn an SEC Championship game berth and after resting their key starters in last week’s win, there will be no excuse for failing to get the job done in the most important game in the history of the Palmetto Bowl.
