Georgia vs South Carolina betting pick

Georgia opened as a 4 ½-point home favorite over a South Carolina team that has dominated this SEC series under coach Steve Spurrier.

The Gamecocks are 6-1-1 against the spread versus Georgia in Spurrier’s eight seasons. South Carolina has covered the spread in the last four meetings, including in last season’s 35-7 rout of the Bulldogs in Columbia, S.C.

South Carolina looked solid, especially defensively, in its 27-10 opening win over a talented North Carolina team.

Georgia surrendered 467 yards in its 38-35 opening loss at Clemson. The Bulldogs’ offense, led by senior quarterback Aaron Murray and sophomore running back Todd Gurley, put up big numbers, but couldn’t overcome two turnovers, eight penalties and some sloppy special teams play against Clemson.

South Carolina has dominated this series, going 10-3-2 ATS since 2000.
