Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
Georgia escapes Columbia with their first SEC win of the season.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: South Carolina +10 & OVER 52.5 Points
This should be a tightly contested matchup as both these teams are going to come out swinging in their first SEC matchup of the year.
Both teams preach defense while we should expect this game to move at a slow-tempo pace.
Bentley has the talent to face a stout Georgia defense, but Fromm should be the difference in this one as he should have some familiarity against this Will Muschamp defense.
Georgia should get the win, but I don’t expect this to be a double-digit victory on the road against a rising South Carolina squad, while I expect both these offenses to put up points against these tough defenses.
Back the home team and free points, while the over is at play here as well.
