The Gamecocks have turned their season around in their past couple of matchups. South Carolina beat Tennessee 27-24 at home before travelling to Ole Miss and beating the Rebels 48-44.

South Carolina at Florida Final NCAAF Betting Analysis

South Carolina plays well on the road, but it’s difficult to see a Dan Mullen coached team like Florida dropping 3 straight in the SEC unless those 3 opponents are Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia.

The Gamecocks aren’t on Florida’s level. The Gators should bounce back from the double-digit, shocking loss to Missouri in Week 10. Florida will impressively beat South Carolina, maybe by 14 points or more, and make their case for a New Year’s Day Bowl Game.
