The Pick

South Carolina +25

It’s easy to admit that Georgia looks insanely good so far this season, but 25 points against a solid SEC team is a massive spread (although, to be fair, the Oregon game probably could have done with a similar spread). While the Gamecocks haven’t had much luck against Georgia in recent years, the Shane Beamer does have a different look, and they’ll have home advantage. It might not be a good game, it may not even be a particularly close game, but I think that SC can stay within 25.
