You can bet on… When it comes to college ball, Spurrier just wins as he has been to 12 straight bowl games. It will be 13 after this season as long as the Gamecocks can protect their home field and win at least five of the seven games. Three road games are almost sure wins so surpassing last year’s seven wins is likely. Last season, South Carolina had its first non-losing campaign against the number since 2001 and that was with an overvalued team because of the return of Spurrier. After going 8-16 ATS in 2002-2004, the Gamecocks went 5-3 ATS in SEC games in 2005 and they will try to keep that run going in the first two games of the year this season. They are favored on the road at Mississippi St., the first time they have been in that role since the middle of the 2004 season.
