How To Bet On South Carolina LSU – Gamecocks Overwhelm Tigers On the Road

South Carolina Gamecocks @ LSU Tigers – Saturday October 13, 2012 8:00PM EST

The betting websites have been impressed with the work done by Steve Spurrier and the South Carolina Gamecocks in the 2012 season. The Gamecocks have always been a respected team in the college football ranks, but to be within one spot of the BCS title game has been something that South Carolina has not seen in a while. As the second half of the college football season begins, the Gamecocks have its sights set on moving into that top two and competing for a title in January. A road game win over the LSU Tigers would be the ideal way for South Carolina to improve its position in the standings.

LSU was doing just fine until it met its first ranked team in week six in the Florida Gators. When the NCAA football betting experts saw the LSU offense completely shut down by the Gators’ defense, it dropped the Tigers down to number nine in the rankings and sinking fast. LSU has a stretch of ranked teams coming up that it can use to help climb its way back into the top five, but it does not look like this stretch is going to start off in LSU’s favor. A game against South Carolina could be a way that the Tigers improve its standing, or it could be another game that sinks LSU deeper and deeper into the standings.

Why South Carolina Will Win

The problem for LSU in this game is that the South Carolina Gamecocks have the fourth best defense in the entire country. South Carolina does everything well on defense and manages to be able to keep everything in front of it. On offense, South Carolina has the ability to put up points and has a formidable ground game, but it is quarterback Connor Shaw that will hold the key in this game for the Gamecocks.

Why LSU Will Win

Despite its LSU’s recent troubles, the sportsbook experts still feel pretty good about quarterback Zach Mettenberger’s ability to keep his team in a game. Despite losing last week to Florida, Mettenberger never really did anything to put LSU out of the game. If the Tigers want to win this game, it needs to give Mettenberger time to deliver the ball and Mettenberger needs to take care of the ball and reduce turnovers. In essence, the Tigers will need to play a perfect game to be able to beat South Carolina.

The Bottom Line

LSU showed in week 6 that it does not have an easy time playing ranked teams. South Carolina plays a solid game week after week and already has a win over a ranked team when it beat number five ranked Georgia last week. This game will be close, but it will be South Carolina all the way.

Pick: South Carolina
