College Football Betting Preview
LSU (4-1) at South Carolina (5-2)
Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern – ESPN


SBG Global Opening Line: LSU    3.5  ,  Total  45

The LSU Tigers will try and rebound from a bad loss last week at Florida but it may not be easy against a tough South Carolina team.  The Gamecocks have won four straight and have the nation’s third ranked defense.  That could mean a low scoring game on Saturday night.  The Tigers had all kinds of problems last week against Florida but head coach Les Miles believes his team will come back strong this week. “I think our team will respond very favorably to what was a showing that we could have played better,” said Miles, “It’s going to be a great one for our football team to go to South Carolina and play well on the road. We need to come out and play well from the start.” SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking LSU on the Road.


The Gamecocks scored just enough last week to win 24-17 over Kentucky. “We can play some defense,” South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said, “If we can get the offense going just a little bit better, we’ve got a chance against everybody.”  Redshirt freshman quarterback Stephen Garcia played well in relief of starter Chris Smelley last week and will get the start against LSU.  The Gamecocks have not beaten LSU at home since 1930.  The Tigers are 15-2-1 all-time against South Carolina. “This is a key game for us,” Spurrier said. “LSU is sort of the big name team as we know. What we’re really trying to do this week is talk about playing the best we can, not so much worry that we’re playing the defending national champ and the team has tremendous history. If we play our game, play well and take care of the ball I believe we’ll be right in there with these guys.”
