The Gators are a strong defensive team, allowing just 14.1 points and 314.3 yards per game this season. Jonathan Greenard is leading the defense with 26 tacklkes and four sacks. Offensively, Florida is putting up 31.7 points and 429.3 yards per contest. Kyle Trask has thrown for 1,191 yards and 10 touchdowns to lead the offense while Lamical Perine has rushed for 392 yards and four touchdowns. Kyle Pitts has 30 catches for 362 yards and three scores.
Gamecocks upset Georgia
The South Carolina football team is coming off an OT upset of Georgia on the road, 20-17, last weekend. The Gamecocks are 3-3 on the season, 2-2 in the SEC, 4-2 against the spread and 4-2 with the under.
South Carolina is in the middle of the road on offense and defense this year. The offense is putting up 28.8 points and 409.8 yards per game while the defense is giving up 23.2 points and 403.7 yards per outing. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski suffered a knee injury last weekend and is listed as probable to play this weekend. He has thrown for 1,028 yards and six touchdowns this season. Bryan Edwards is the team’s leading receiver with 33 catches for 426 yards and four touchdowns while Rico Dowdle has 449 rushing yards and four scores. Israel Mukuamu is leading the defense with 37 tackles and four interceptions.
College Football Betting Trends
Florida is 5-0-1 with the over in its last six road games and 6-1-1 with the over in its last eight games following a cover.
The Gamecocks are 6-2 with the under in their last eight games overall and 21-9 with the under in their last 30 SEC games.
These two have hit the over in their last two meetings, both of which were pretty low. The total is low this week as well. Both teams could be feeling last week’s game, as both were really physical and on the road. South Carolina’s offense isn’t too challenging for the Florida defense, but I think the Gators are going to have trouble moving the ball as well. The last two weeks have taken a lot out of their offensive front. I think that will allow South Carolina to be competitive on defense and keep the total low.
