Why Georgia can cover

The Bulldogs have already defeated their first two opponents this season by 40 or more points, beating Tennessee-Martin 48-7 and Ball State 45-3. Quarterback Carson Beck has completed 72.1% of his passes for the season, while running backs Roderick Robinson II and Kendall Milton have split most of the carries. 

South Carolina is the first Power Five team Georgia is facing this season, but the Bulldogs should be plenty confident at home since they haven’t lost at Sanford Stadium since 2019. The Bulldogs have dominated this head-to-head matchup the past three years, winning by an average of 32.3 points, so this four-score spread feels manageable for UGA. See picks at SportsLine

Why South Carolina can cover

The key for South Carolina to cover the spread on Saturday will be to protect QB Spencer Rattler from a tough Georgia defense. The Gamecocks offensive line left Rattler heavily exposed in Week 1 and he was sacked nine times by the Tar Heels. 

The offense tightened up in Week 2 and Rattler threw for 345 yards and had three TDs. The Bulldogs are the best opponent the Gamecocks have faced so far this season, and giving Rattler room to work will be crucial. See picks at SportsLine
