CBS Sports' predictions for Florida football against South Carolina – Gators Wire Leave a comment

Coming off a loss to the No. 1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs, Florida desperately needs to find a way to get back in the win column after losing three of its last four. This week’s game at South Carolina presents a great opportunity to do just that, but the Gators will need to play better than they have in recent weeks.
In his weekly SEC predictions, CBS Sports’ Barrett Sallee said that he thinks Florida will be able to get the win, but it won’t be in blowout fashion. He predicted that the Gamecocks will cover an 18-point spread with relative ease.
The Gators are an absolute mess, but not enough of a mess to be stunned by the Gamecocks. With that said, you’d have to be out of your mind to lay 18 points with a Gators team that not only has a mess at quarterback, but has a head coach who’s teetering on the brink of landing on the hot seat. Florida might not break 20 points, which should make a Gamecocks cover stress-free. Pick: South Carolina (+18)
Expecting Florida to beat any team by three scores right now certainly feels like a bit of a stretch, and South Carolina’s defense has been solid this season (and in fact is very good against the pass).
If the Gators struggle to establish the run, this one could be close, but South Carolina’s struggles on offense will likely keep it from scoring enough to be competitive.
