Florida vs. South Carolina Free Pick
After surviving a scare last Saturday versus Vanderbilt, Florida finds itself as a road favorite today versus South Carolina at 12:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Gators are 7.5-point favorites versus the host Gamecocks while the total currently sits at 46.5 points.
Florida is 8-1 on the year, with its lone loss coming on the road to LSU a few weeks back. After failing to cover last weekend versus the Commodores, the Gators are now 6-3 against the spread.
As for the Gamecocks, they're 3-6 straight up but 5-4 against the spread after covering the number in each of their last three games. Over the past two weeks, SC covered as a double-digit road underdog.
South Carolina has covered three straight games dating back to a 19-10 win over Vanderbilt on October 17. The Gamecocks were 14.5-point underdogs versus Texas A&M and covered in a 35-28 loss, and were 17-point dogs in a 27-24 defeat last Saturday at Tennessee. It's tempting to take the points and fade a Florida team that barely beat Vandy 9-7 as a 21-point home favorite last Saturday. But the Gators boast one of the nation's top defenses and the Gamecocks will struggle to move the ball. While the Gators lack punch on offense, unlike Vanderbilt, SC has struggled defensively all season. The Gamecocks are allowing 208.3 yards per game on the ground this season, which ranks 111th in the nation. They're also allowing 27.3 points per game on the year and if Florida scores anywhere close to that number, the Gators will cover easily.
