4 things to know before betting UGA as a 21.5-point favorite at South Carolina
Georgia is 5-5 straight up in its last 10 vs. South Carolina.
The previous decade was kind to the Bulldogs. UGA won five SEC East titles, went to three New Year’s Six Bowls, won an SEC championship and appeared in the College Football Playoff. However, that success didn’t always guarantee a victory against South Carolina.
The Gamecocks beat UGA three straight seasons from 2010-12, again in 2014 and once again last season in Athens as a three touchdown underdog.
UGA is 6-3 against the spread in its last nine road games.
The Bulldogs easily covered in their last trip to South Carolina — winning 41-17 as eight-point favorites in September of 2018. Since then, UGA has been a team of streaks when playing away from home.
UGA covered in all four of its true road games in 2019 but is 0-3 against the spread as the visitor so far this season.
UGA is 7-13 against the spread when favored by 20 or more points under Coach Kirby Smart.
UGA barely slipped past Mississippi State last Saturday, winning 31-24 as a 26.5-point favorite. The Bulldogs also failed to cover in their only other instance as a 20-plus point favorite this season when they beat Arkansas 37-10 as a 28-point favorite in the season opener.
UGA was 4-3 against the spread when favored by 20 or more in 2019.
UGA has failed to cover in four straight games vs. SEC opponents.
UGA nearly covered in Week 1 at Arkansas and easily exceeded the spread the next two weeks against Auburn and Tennessee, but the results have been less impressive since then from a betting perspective.
Dating back to last season, UGA has covered five of its last 14 games vs. SEC opponents.
