Running back Marcus Lattimore's status is uncertain for Saturday's Southeastern Conference showdown between the South Carolina Gamecocks (6-1) and Florida Gators (6-0), as the two teams will kick things off at 3:30 p.m. ET inside The Swamp on CBS.
The Gamecocks are currently 3.5-point road underdogs in the Week 8 college football betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total has fallen three points from its opening number to settle in at 41.
Lattimore was spectacular in his only game against the Gators on Nov. 13, 2010, as he rushed a career-high 40 times for a career-high 212 yards in leading the program to its first-ever win on the road in this series.
Let's take a closer look at this high-profile affair from a betting perspective, while offering a pick on the total along the way.
