You may have noticed Georgia is a rather sizeable favorite this Saturday. Historically speaking, that’s both good news and bad.
For South Carolina, being an underdog this large is relatively uncharted territory. Last season, the Gamecocks were two-touchdown underdogs at Auburn, but before that game, the last time they were catching double-digits on the road was 2009 against Alabama! Overall, Spurrier has been a double-digit road underdog eight times in his tenure at Columbia. He is 6-2 against the number… Georgia fans, lest you worry too much about a Gamecock win, while he is 6-2 versus the spread as a double-digit road underdog, Spurrier’s teams have won outright just once.
Like I said, I’ll be more than satisfied with a one-point win against the ‘Cocks. ‘Course, if the Dawgs want to cover, it’s not like I’ll complain.
