South Carolina vs Arkansas Prediction & Pick

South Carolina made headlines this past offseason by landing quarterback Spencer Rattler in the transfer portal. The 21-year-old played fine in Week 1, but two interceptions kept Georgia State in the game longer than necessary. Arkansas should easily take advantage of Rattler's inaccuracy here.

The Razorbacks are 7-1 straight up in their last eight home games and rushed for a whopping 224 yards on the ground in Week 1. Keep in mind that the Gamecocks only mustered 79 rushing yards in Week 1. The ground game will be the difference in this one and it will guide Arkansas to a decisive conference win.

Final Score Prediction: Arkansas: 34 | South Carolina: 20

South Carolina vs Arkansas Best Bet

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

This total is right in line with how these teams performed in Week 1, so targeting the spread is the better option here. South Carolina is 3-11 against the spread (ATS) in its last 14 games against a SEC opponent and 2-6 ATS in its last eight games played at Razorback Stadium. That is not a good sign.

When it comes down to it, Arkansas is the much more talented team here. Both Sanders and Jefferson can gash South Carolina on the ground and build an early lead. That'll force Rattler to throw the ball and ultimately turn it over a few times. The Razorbacks should win this game by double digits.

Bet: Arkansas -8.5 (-110)
