Public Betting: Which side are public bettors on for this Matchup?
Public bettors are backing the underdog in this matchup. Of the wagers currently placed on Saturday's game, 61% of tickets are on South Carolina plus the points.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in all four of South Carolina's games dating back to last season and is 10-4-1 in the Gamecocks' last 15 games after accumulating less than 275 total yards in their previous game. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Tigers' last four games in September and is 5-2 in their last seven games versus a team with a winning record. Both of these teams have good quarterbacks, explosive offenses, and suspect defenses. That combination is perfect for over bettors.
