South Carolina vs. Georgia Expert Betting Predictions
Georgia cruised to a victory last week, but that might not be the case in Week 3 as they take on a tougher opponent. Although they get a home-field advantage, it’s not enough to pull the team out of trouble. Covering the spread remains a possibility, but a straight-up win requires Kirby Smart and the rest of the squad to be at their best. On the other hand, South Carolina enters the game as the heavy favorite. If they continue to deliver consistent offense and defense, this should be an easy win for the team.
