Week 7 College Football Picks Analysis: The action has been pretty much split down the middle with 54% of the action on the road underdog Gamecocks. The Tigers have been thinned out on the O-line and and starting QB Zach Mettenberg has not shown that he can move the offense. LSU’s running attack has been invisible and S.C. running back Marcus Lattimore should rise to the challenge of facing LSU’s vicious defense. South Carolina vs LSU Odds Total is at 40.0 points.
The Gamecocks defense has been one of the more overlooked aspects to their successful run. S.C.’s defense is lethal against the pass and tough against the run and should have their way with LSU’s shaky O-line. Gamecocks QB Connor Shaw will struggle but the “old ball coach” Steve Spurrier should have a gameplan clever enough to outscore the Tigers in an upset win.
