Vegas betting line for Kentucky vs. South Carolina opens with the Gamecocks favored by 21

The Gamecocks will be without their starting quarterback, half of their running back tandem, and possibly their starting center when they play Kentucky on Saturday. None of this has Vegas concerned.

The Las Vegas oddsmakers have installed South Carolina as a 21 point home favorite for this Saturday's game against Kentucky.

Three touchdowns might seem like a pretty wide margin for a Gamecock team with some troubling flaws, but the Wildcats looked absolutely wretched in a 24-7 home loss to Florida that saw them accumulate just 174 yards of total offense while getting torched for 246 yards rushing by Matt Jones and the Gator rushing attack.

Hey, is South Carolina any good at running the ball?
