football bettingThe South Carolina vs Georgia odds kick off the SEC schedule for both teams, which means you’ll need your mouthpiece and helmet for this game. Online betting cappers watched both squads looked inept on offense in Week 1, which means this will be another ugly, low-scoring contest to watch.

South Carolina vs Georgia odds: Georgia -7

  • WHAT: NCAA Football betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, September 12th – 7:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Sanford Stadium – Athens, GA
  • PICK: South Carolina +7

South Carolina vs Georgia odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
South Carolina has the chance to make some ground in the SEC. Long thought to be a middle-of-the-pack team in the conference, they can make a statement with a win in Georgia. Getting the win would move them to 2-0, and with Florida Atlantic visiting next week, this could set up a sexy matchup against Ole Miss on September 24th when they come to South Carolina.

For Georgia, the balloon has been somewhat deflated after losing to Oklahoma State. That same balloon might get popped if they fall to 0-2 this week. They are obviously rebuilding, but they don’t want to say it. A loss here and they definitely won’t have to.

South Carolina vs Georgia odds maker breakdown: Offense
South Carolina’s offense looked ugly against North Carolina State in Week 1, but let’s give some credit where credit is due: the offense did look improved over last year’s squad. The running game is still stuck in the mud, but at least quarterback Stephen Garcia showed a bit of poise managing the game. He still threw an interception, but in general, he looked far more comfortable this year. They’ll still have to pick up their game for this week as they face an SEC defense.

Georgia will be at home this week, which is why they are a seven-point favorite in the sportsbook, but the question is whether it will help their offense. Obviously, after losing Matt Stafford and Knowshon Moreno, the Bulldogs were going to have some growing pains on offense. Against Oklahoma State’s defense, the Bulldogs averaged just 3.2 yards per carry – that figure probably won’t improve against the stingy SC defense. This is a group that is still searching for an identity.

South Carolina vs Georgia odds maker breakdown: Defense
South Carolina held a talented NC State offense to just three points, which is fairly impressive considering they were on the road. Quarterback Russell Wilson may be the best that the ACC has to offer but even he couldn’t get anything done against this stifling SC squad, which finished with six sacks. Keep in mind that USC will get back three suspended defensive starters – defensive end Clifton Geathers, defensive tackle Ladi Ajiboye and cornerback C.C. Whitlock – who were suspended for the season opener and will return for this game.

NCAA football betting fans thought Georgia’s defense might be able to rough up Oklahoma State’s offense but that wasn’t really the case. They limited them to just 307 but they still gave up 24 points. Georgia’s defense is a stout group, especially when playing between the hedges.

South Carolina vs Georgia odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
South Carolina will be without starting middle linebacker Rodney Paulk, who tore a ligament in his knee and will be out for the season. Wideout Dion LeCorn, who broke his leg in the spring game, could return for this week’s game against Georgia.

For Georgia, tackle Trinton Studivant tweaked his oft-injured knee and may be out this week.

Betting Edge: Even

South Carolina vs Georgia State betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
It’s a fairly even matchup. Georgia may have the slightly better offense while SC may have the slightly better defense. The Bulldogs will have home field advantage and they’ll probably be more desperate for the win, but this is an evenly defensive matchup, so take the points.
