Odds: Gamecocks enter Palmetto Bowl as heavy underdogs to Clemson

As expected.

After a nice pick-me-up win against Chattanooga, the South Carolina Gamecocks will hit the road to the upstate as 25-point underdogs to their favorite furry friends, the Clemson Tigers.

Clemson, currently undefeated and ranked second in the College Football Playoff poll, is all but a shoe-in to win the ACC and make another postseason appearance. The Tigers are aiming to notch their fifth straight victory against South Carolina, which has unfortunately not been very competitive in the series of late.

Clemson is 6-5 against the spread this season, while the Gamecocks are 6-4. The current projected score is 52-18 in favor of the Tigers, which...yeah.

What do you think of the spread? Too high, too low, just right? It's a tough ask to play against a team like this on the road at night, especially given South Carolina's injury situation. Personally, I think this line is reasonable, although I wouldn't be surprised if it sees a bump throughout the week.
