We have come up with a line of -23 on this one.

While South Carolina struggled to win last week against East Carolina (20-17), their defense was solid.  The Gamecocks allowed just 152 yards through the air and 116 on the ground.  The defense currently leads the nation in third down stops.

The Gamecocks have yet to confirm who will start as quarterback, but whoever it is will have their hands full against a tough Georgia front seven that already has 10 sacks in this young season.

South Carolina may have a chance to cover the 31 points.  The 23 points we believe this game line should be was determined ahead of Georgia's banged up quarterback situation.

Quarterback Carson Beck is in line to get his first career start for the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday as JT Daniels is reported to have an oblique muscle strain.

“Carson’s been our No. 2 quarterback,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said after the Bulldogs’ practice Tuesday. “He’s worked with the 2′s and has worked a lot there, taken a lot of reps. Stetson still gets some reps from time-to-time, but he’s got a lot of banked reps, so we ask him to do a lot of things mentally to be prepared and ready to go.”
