Las Vegas is still not a believer in South Carolina. The South Point casino sports book released its over/under season victory totals for all 130 Football Bowl Subdivision programs. They set the Gamecocks’ number at five which is the lowest in the SEC, tied with Mississippi State. Alabama, of course, had the highest SEC number at 10.5. South Point's number for defending national champion Clemson was set at 9.5.
As with all things Vegas, it's not a prediction, but a gambling point as sports bookies set a number to attempt to get people to bet on both sides of that number, — those that think it’s too high, and those who believe it’s too low.
South Point has also set odds for the opening week of the season, and North Carolina State is a five-point favorite over the Gamecocks in the Sept. 2 game in Charlotte.
