South Carolina is coming off its second bye week of the 2014 campaign, as it looks to snap a two-game losing streak, which includes a 45-42 overtime loss to the Tennessee Volunteers as five-point home favorites on Nov. 1.  The Gamecocks have actually dropped their last four Southeastern Conference affairs, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 12 college football betting picks.  The squad needs two wins in its final three games to reach the six-win plateau and become bowl eligible—something that has happened in each of the previous nine years under head coach Steve Spurrier.

The Gamecocks have won three of their last four meetings against the Gators, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting odds, as Spurrier is always ready to take on his alma mater.  South Carolina has dropped two of three true road games this season, but the program has compiled a 13-7 SU record in that situation in its last 20 opportunities.  Offensively, the team is on pace to establish a new school-record with 467 points scored, which would break last year’s mark of 443.

Florida is playing its best football of the season in winning back-to-back games, including a 34-10 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores as 14.5-point road favorites last week, while going OVER the betting total for the seventh time in eight affairs.  The Gators are 24-4 SU when winning or tying the turnover battle under head coach Will Muschamp, while they’ve scored 30 or more points in consecutive SEC games for the first time since 2012.  Florida is 1-2 SUATS as favorites of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER cashing in two of those three opportunities.

The Gators offense leads the SEC and stands third nationally in red-zone efficiency—converting 29-of-31 trips inside their opponents’ 20-yard line into points.  Florida’s defense is forcing 5.75 three-and-outs per game, which leads the SEC and sits behing just four teams through games of Nov. 8.

Sports bettors will likely back the Gators due to their 5-2 ATS mark in their last seven home games in this series.
