Line: South Carolina -12.5

SEC football is always exciting and this game looks to be a good one on paper. South Carolina comes in 4-2 with a 2-2 SEC record. The Gamecocks are 0-2 on the road and one of those losses came last week at Kentucky 31-28. Vanderbilt has a 2-4 record while being 1-2 in the SEC. They got whopped last weekend at Georgia and will be looking to bounce back at home. They are 1-2 at home and look to get things going this week.

South Carolina has looked good this year. They are ranked 39th overall on defense allowing 20.8 points a game. Their offense has averaged 31 points a game, 43rd in the nation. Their rushing game is ranked 69th with 145.7 yards a game. Their passing game has been much better coming in at 40th with 245 yards a game. Junior QB Stephen Garcia leads the offense with 1,326 yards 10 TDs and 5 Ints. The concern for South Carolina is Freshman RB Marcus Lattimore won’t start, but he may play. Lattimore leads the Gamecocks with 538 rushing yards and 10 TDs.

Vanderbilt has been decent on defense allowing 25.5 points a game, 67th overall. Their offense has struggled as they rank 98th worst with 20.8 points a game. Their passing game has been garbage averaging 162.5 yards a game, 101st worst. Their rushing game has been much better with 152.7 yards a game, 60th overall. Sophomore RB Warren Norman leads the team with 350 yards and 4 TDs.

South Carolina has looked good at times this year. They have looked like a different team on the road. As a sports pick, The Gamecocks scare me this week. They won’t have a healthy Marcus Lattimore which could effect their offense greatly. After a road loss at Kentucky last week, look for South Carolina to struggle, although they might pull out the victory. They will not cover the spread though, this one will be close.
