2010 College Football Picks - Alabama vs. South Carolina Week Six NCAA Predictions: In week five of the NCAA College Football picks season, #1 University of Alabama (5-0) visits #19 South Carolina in a key SEC clash. Alabama is a -7 point college football picks road favorite according to the Vegas NCAA odds. Last college football picks season, Alabama won at home 20-6 in a game that moved Mark Ingram into the minds of the Heisman voters. Though the Tide won in double-digits, they were favored by -18 and South Carolina beat the spread set by Vegas odds makers.
Can South Carolina turn the trick again or even upset the #1 team in the nation outright? Steve Spurrier has had two weeks to prepare for Alabama and his team should be fired-up after losing to Auburn 35-27. Before that college football picks contest, the defense had been playing well, holding Georgia and Southern Mississippi to 6 and 13 points. South Carolina’s offense is led by Stephen Garcia, who has had a star-crossed career at Columbia. He has accounted for 7 touchdowns but couldn’t get the Gamecocks over the top against Auburn. Freshman Marcus Lattimore leads the team in rushing with 366 yards but he was bottled-up against Auburn with just 33 yards.
Lattimore will find more tough sledding against Alabama, who are #1 in the country in scoring defense, averaging just 9 points against. The Tide rolled against the University of Florida, holding the Gators to under 80 yards rushing and just six points. Ingram scored two touchdowns and Greg McElroy managed the game. Trent Richardson and Ingram should have lots of running room against South Carolina and the defense, as always, should shut the door on Garcia.
Alabama just has too much for South Carolina, even in a charged-up Williams-Brice Stadium. Alabama stays undefeated and covers the spread in a double-digit college football picks victory.
