Coverage: ESPN

Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks. To the shock of no one, the Bulldogs were hardly challenged in their 33-0 win over Samford last week, holding the opposition to 128 total offensive yards.

Meanwhile, South Carolina is hoping to turn things around after a 44-30 loss to Arkansas. The Gamecocks didn't give fans much of a reason to cheer, however, wideout Antwane Wells Jr. did haul in eight balls for 189 yards and a touchdown.

Georgia enters this contest as the favorite on the spread. This 12 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 54.5, which is on the high side compared to the rest of this week's college football projected totals.

Georgia vs South Carolina Prediction & Pick

The Georgia-South Carolina has been fairly one-sided in recent years. The Bulldogs are 14-6 in their last 20 matchups against the Gamecocks, while also winning six of the last seven tilts. In fact, Georgia's last six wins against South Carolina have been by an average score of 38-15.

If the Gamecocks couldn't handle the No. 16-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks last week, I don't have much faith in them upsetting arguably the best team in the nation. Georgia is on a different level compared to its peers and shouldn't break a sweat against South Carolina.

Final Score Prediction: Georgia: 42 | South Carolina: 14

Georgia vs South Carolina Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Although a 25.5-point spread looks like a lot, Georgia is lightyears ahead of South Carolina on both defense and offense. The Bulldogs' average win margin in their last three victories against the Gamecocks has been 26.7, so winning by a large amount isn't anything new.

With how dominant Georgia has been this year, I'm confident that they can cover the spread.

Bet: Georgia -25.5 (-110)
