The betting line, which opened initially with the Gamecocks as a 5-point favorite, has continued to move in South Carolina’s direction. The Gamecocks are now 6.5- and even 7-point favorites in what will be their first game in the friendly confines of Williams-Brice.
Kentucky is coming off a less-than-impressive 27-16 victory against FCS foe Eastern Kentucky, an uneven performance which saw the Wildcats trailing at the half. Star running back Benny Snell bruised his ribs, and although he re-entered the game, his health could be something to watch.
The over/under is set at 50.5. South Carolina is 2-0 against the spread this season, while Kentucky is 0-2.
