Apparently, college football oddsmakers aren't giving Navy very much of a chance to upset No. 10 South Carolina on the road on Saturday. According to the latest college football odds, the Midshipmen are 17-point underdogs to the Gamecocks for Saturday's showdown in Columbia.
That's quite the line right there. South Carolina is obviously a formidable team, especially after beating Georgia on the road, but they've also looked uneven at times this year. Running back Marcus Lattimore is obviously a load, but quarterback Stephen Garcia can be erratic at times. Navy has also dominated both their opponents, and while neither was high-quality competition, the Midshipmen still blew them out.
I doubt Navy wins this game, but I am fairly confident they can keep the final margin of the game to within two scores.
