Sam 'Ace' Rothstein's Pick of the Week
The Georgia Sports Blog does not condone gambling, and we believe that sports lines are best used as a framework for open and warm hearted discussion between college football fans.
With that in mind, we note that the betting line for South Carolina vs. Florida Atlantic is 30.5 points. Given that the Lamecocks barely escaped Div I-AA Wofford by a score of 27-20, this seems like a good time to talk to your guy.
More on the Wofford game from ESPN:
It took one play to stun everyone left at Williams-Brice Stadium as Josh Collier's 25-yard TD pass to Andy Strickland drew the Terriers to 27-20 with 4:43 left.Note: I’m lousy as a handicapper. Horrific actually. Those who bet following my advice do so at their own peril.
Wofford had one last chance, driving to South Carolina's 10 with :29 to go. On fourth-and-5, the Gamecocks' Dakota Walker knocked Collier's pass attempt into the air and linebacker Cody Wells caught it and South Carolina (2-1) escaped a huge embarrassment.
