Georgia vs South Carolina Predictions, Picks

Featured game | | South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Georgia Bulldogs

South Carolina’s predicament on the offensive line spells havoc in this matchup. The Gamecocks have struggled to protect his Spencer Rattler at quarterback and haven’t shown much of a rushing offense throughout the two games. Georgia’s defense looks barely down after five players were selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, and the Bulldogs may be able to keep South Carolina from reaching double digits. Smart is unlikely to outperform his esteemed former assistant, but Georgia will have cover, even if that attack tamed things. Forecast: Georgia (-24.5)
