Upstart Gamecocks Setting Trap for Clemson?

2021 Clemson Tigers Betting Odds

Once upon a time, South Carolina had the upper hand on Clemson.  Former USC coach Steve Spurrier schooled Dabo Swinney and Tommy Bowden like a clock.  But as Swinney’s program began to take off, Spurrier saw what was coming.  And his retirement brought an end to the Gamecocks being competitive against their intra-state rivals.  This year is likely to be more of the same.  Despite the fact that Clemson is not what they used to be offensive.  Normally this would be an opportune College football betting year to get Clemson.  But South Carolina lacks the firepower to take advantage.
