College Football Picks – South Carolina vs Arkansas

The South Carolina Gamecocks have been winning lately, but it hasn’t been pretty. The offense has struggled to say the least, but the defense has been quite good. Now, they head to Arkansas to tangle with a team that has had their number for a long time. The Razorbacks went into Columbia last season and took down a South Carolina team that eventually won its division. They beat South Carolina like a drum and they’ve been consistently better than the Gamecocks for the better part of twenty years. Can they come to play again in Fayetteville and cover a spread that current sits at around 5 points?

Arkansas has the weapons on the outside to score points against South Carolina. They have the best offense that SC has faced and they are playing at home. This should lead to a breakout performance. With the home, night crowd on their side, expect the Razorbacks to look focused in this one. The Gamecocks have also had to go on the road two weeks in a row, so you might expect them to be a bit road-weary. This is a long trip from South Carolina, so that could have an impact, as well. Arkansas should be the pick in this one, so favor them if you must play this game.
