While some matchups will gain more national attention in week two of the college football season, none will have the same amount of urgency that South Carolina-Georgia will possess.

South Carolina Gamecocks @ Georgia Bulldogs – Saturday, September 10

Sports betting line: South Carolina -3

Why South Carolina Will Win

Plainly put, Georgia is a mess at the present moment. The Bulldogs got whipped and outclassed by Boise State in their season opener, thereby creating a sour mood in the locker room. Georgia just isn’t the same program it was from 2002 through 2008, when it made three Sugar Bowls and was a top-of-the-line SEC contender. This Georgia team, like the two that preceded it in 2009 and 2010, is just not as rugged or resilient as its championship-winning predecessors. The Bulldogs’ offensive line is playing well below its potential, and quarterback Aaron Murray isn’t playing with supreme confidence. Georgia has to be at its best to win this game. The Bulldogs aren’t anywhere near hitting the peak of their capabilities.
Why Georgia Will Win

The community of MLB baseball betting analysts in the state of Georgia is following the Atlanta Braves right now. However, they might pay a little attention to this contest as a distraction. Speaking of the word “distraction,” that’s something which often arises when speaking about South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia. The talented signal caller is unpredictable both on and off the field. He’s a wild card who might not be able to handle the heat of this high-pressure road game. When considering the vulnerability of South Carolina, one should realize that East Carolina put up a very good fight against the Gamecocks last Saturday. The Pirates took advantage of the fact that the Gamecocks began the game with Connor Shaw at quarterback in place of Garcia. South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier wanted to send a message to Garcia for his repeatedly wayward and irresponsible behavior. When East Carolina gained a 17-0 lead in a first quarter marked by Garcia’s absence, the troubling part of the larger situation was that the Gamecocks didn’t answer the bell; they were shaken by outside events instead of playing with increased determination. ECU took a 24-14 lead to the locker room at halftime and harbored hopes of a huge upset against South Carolina, but Garcia’s return to the game allowed the Gamecocks’ offense to roll. Still, East Carolina proved it could hang with one of the big boys in the SEC. South Carolina allowed 37 points and must wonder how ready its defense is to win this game.

Who Will Win

When you consider a sports bet in this contest, the biggest thing to realize is that Garcia, for all of his erratic behavior, could have pouted last week when his team fell behind 17-0. Instead, Garcia went to work and led his offense with distinction. Garcia is the key to this game. He’s more likely to play well than not. One doesn’t need a better reason to go with the Gamecocks on the road.
