Why Bet on the Georgia Bulldogs?

In their first game of the season, Georgia trounced Oregon 49-3. The victory showed the Bulldogs were more than a rushing team. Last season, quarterback Stetson Bennett didn’t pick it up until the National Championship. For most of last season, the Bulldogs won because of a smothering defense and a terrific rushing attack.

But in the National Championship, Bennett picked apart a solid Alabama defense. Versus Oregon, Bennett shined. Stetson completed 25-of-31 for 368 yards and 2 touchdowns. Versus Samford, Bennett completed 24-of-34 for 300 yards and a TD. As if dealing wit Georgia’s offense wasn’t hard enough, now opponents must worry about Stetson Bennett dominating them with the pass.

Georgia sent 8 starters to the NFL, which is why so many college football handicappers believed the defense wouldn’t be as menacing in 2022 as it was in 2021. But coach Kirby Smart and Georgia’s fans new how good the defense would be this season.

UGA allowed Oregon to score 3 points, a single field goal, in the week 1 victory. In week 2, Georgia held Samford to 0 points. After 2 games, opponents are averaging 220.5 total yards versus Georgia’s defense.

Why Bet on the South Carolina Gamecocks?

South Carolina fields a great passing attack. Quarterback Spencer Rattler, an Oklahoma transfer who was a preseason Heisman Trophy favorite in 2021, has thrown for a combined 603 yards and 2 touchdowns with 0 picks in 2 games. Rattler is playing well. The rushing attack is nonexistent. South Carolina averages 59.5 rushing yards per game.

The Gamecocks don’t have a very good defense. South Carolina allowed Georgia Southern to score 13 points. Arkansas scored 44 in the Razorbacks 44-30 victory over the Gamecocks. After 2 contests, opponents are averaging 250 rushing yards and over 29 points per game.

Georgia vs. South Carolina Expert Betting Predictions

It’s nice that Rattler is playing well. The problem is that Rattler isn’t playing well enough. The former Sooner is completing 62% of his passes. 62% won’t be good enough versus one of the top defenses in the nation. Sure, Georgia pounced on a deer in the headlights Oregon team and beat Samford, an FCS squad, but the Dawgs can shut down both the run and the pass.

South Carolina doesn’t have much of a rushing attack. So Georgia will tee off on Rattler. In addition, the Gamecocks allow way too many rushing yards. Bennett may not have to throw a pass for Georgia to win and cover in this one. UGA crushes South Carolina.
