This is the week when some teams will reach the halfway point of their season, which is the point where it should become very clear who the favorites are. The top 4 is basically the same as it was when the season began, but it’s not every team in the top 4 who has had a serious challenge to this point. That’s not to say that these teams are going to have smooth sailing the rest of the way, as there are a few who are just getting into the heart of their schedule. One of those teams would be the Georgia Bulldogs, who are currently tied for the #3 spot in the nation, with the Ohio State Bulldogs moving into a shared spot.
The Bulldogs have a ton of big games coming up over the next few weeks, all of which are conference games against some of the better teams in the SEC. Georgia will start the meat of their schedule at home to the South Carolina Gamecocks this weekend. The Georgia Bulldogs are in as a 24 ½ point home favorite for this one, with the point total set at 52 ½.

Why bet on the South Carolina Gamecocks?The South Carolina Gamecocks took a nice step forward last season, but that has not carried over into this year, at least not until now. The Gamecocks come into this one sporting a 2-3 SU record, which includes being 1-2 SU in conference games. They are coming off their first conference win of the season, taking down Kentucky 24-17 last week. That was a decent turnaround for a team that had given up a combined 81 points in the 2 games prior to that win.
South Carolina is just 1-5 SU in their last 6 meetings with the Bulldogs, but the good news is that they have gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games on the road. October has been a good month for the Gamecocks, who are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games played in that month.

Why bet on the Georgia Bulldogs?Georgia have made things look pretty easy this season, although they did get a bit of a scare last week. After a huge 24-17 win over Notre Dame in Week 4, the Bulldogs had themselves a bye week. It may have been a bit of rust that needed shaking off, but they struggled a little in the early part of their game versus Tennessee.
The Dawgs turned the game around with a couple of TD’s before half-time in that one, going into cruise control on their way to a 43-14 win over the Volunteers. Georgia has been great bet when going against teams from the SEC, going 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings. 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two have gone OVER the point total.
