SEC Showdown

Steve Spurrier gets a chance to end the national title hopes for his former team when South Carolina hosts No. 1 Florida Saturday at 3:30PM ET from Williams-Brice Stadium.

Bet Florida at South Carolina
The Gamecocks are 6-4 on the season and 5-4 against the spread. South Carolina has lost its last two and also failed to cover the point spread odds in three straight. All four losses this season have come on the road, as South Carolina is 5-0 at home. Five games this year have been decided by single digits.

Florida is 9-0 on the season and 4-4 against the spread. The Gators have not covered the point spread odds in three of their last four games. Florida has been favored in every game this season, with the lowest odds being 9.5 points against LSU. Last year, the Gators gave Spurrier his worst loss as a coach in a 56-6 win at home.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made Florida 15.5-point road favorites over South Carolina on Saturday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 42.5.

This game can be tough to pick because there are so many arguments for both teams. Trends show that this game favors South Carolina with its strong showings at home this season. The key in this game will be how many points can the Gamecocks score against the Florida defense. South Carolina has a respectable defense that should put together an emotional effort for Spurrier and keep Florida from running up the score.

Stephen Garcia has thrown for a lot of yards for the Gamecocks, as he has 2,421 yards passing with 13 touchdowns. But, Garcia is completing just 57 percent of his passes and has six interceptions. Garcia has to be accurate and avoid beating his own team with turnovers. If Garcia can mange the game and sustain some drives for the Gamecocks offense, then South Carolina is a good pick with the point spread odds over two touchdowns. We suggest a pick of the Gamecocks to cover and the under.
