Georgia Bulldogs Betting

The Georgia Bulldogs continue to be the best team in the SEC East, but they failed to win the SEC Championship Game for the fourth time in five tries this decade. Georgia was hammered 37-10 by LSU in the 2019 SEC Championship Game, as the Bulldogs stout defense was shredded by Joe Burrow and the Tigers. For the second straight year, the loss left Georgia out of the College Football Playoff despite being No. 4 in the eyes of the Selection Committee coming into the game, sending the Bulldogs to the Sugar Bowl.

Georgia is out to prevent history from repeating itself in this year’s Sugar Bowl. In last year’s game, Texas came into the clash as a two-touchdown underdog and the Longhorns pulled off the upset after Bevo nearly impaled UGA on one of his long horns. That disappointment has led to Baylor not being as big of an underdog per the college football betting odds in this game, and the Bears’ only two losses this season were at the hands of Oklahoma.

Jake Fromm has not looked sharp since the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Fromm has completed less than 50 percent of his passes in five straight games after the SEC Championship Game, and this offense has not been as effective. Georgia has only scored more than 27 points in a game one time since October 5, and Fromm’s middling play is the primary reason.

Fromm has largely avoided interceptions though. He has thrown just five picks in 355 attempts this season, and Georgia’s quarterback has been interception free in 11 of 13 games. All five of his interceptions came against either South Carolina or LSU and the Bulldogs went on to lose both of those games.

Two of Georgia’s best three receivers won’t be available for this game, increasing the pressure on Fromm. Lawrence Cager was lost for the season after the Auburn game due to an ankle injury, and Dominick Blaylock tore his ACL in the first half of the SEC Championship Game. That will force Fromm to depend on George Pickens and Demetris Robertson.

Kirby Smart wants Georgia to run as much as possible against Baylor, and he would love to give D’Andre Swift 25 carries or more. Swift is averaging 6.2 YPC, and Georgia has one of the top offensive lines in the country. However, Baylor’s front seven is fierce, allowing opponents to just 3.7 YPC, and Oklahoma was the only offense to have some success on this team.

Georgia’s defense is one of the main reasons the total for this game is one of the lowest on the board during bowl season. The Bulldogs had the best defense in the country prior to its game against LSU, as Georgia hadn’t allowed more than 20 points in a game prior to that blowout loss in Atlanta. This defense is in the top five in both run defense and pass defense, so Baylor will have a tough time moving the ball in New Orleans.

Charlie Brewer is expected to play after being taken out of the Big 12 Championship Game in the first half due to a concussion. Brewer is Baylor’s leader on offense, and he completed 65.2 percent of his passes, averaging 8.5 YPA with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions while being a serviceable runner too. This will be the toughest defense he has faced all season by a considerable margin though.

His top receiver all season has been Denzel Mims. Mims leads the team with 61 receptions for 945 yards and 11 touchdowns, but he did not register a catch against Oklahoma in the conference title game.

Regular Season Recap

Georgia was one of the preseason favorites to win the national championship, and the Bulldogs were in the mix until the last week of the regular season. The Bulldogs cruised to victories against subpar opponents in their first three weeks before beating Notre Dame in a slugfest in late September for their first big win of the campaign. They beat Tennessee handily the next week but suffered a stunning loss in Athens to South Carolina in mid-October, giving this team no margin for error.

The Bulldogs gritted out one score wins over Florida, Auburn, and Texas A&M over the second half of the season to win the SEC East and blasted rival Georgia Tech in their regular season finale. However, Burrow and the tigers were too much, and LSU racked up 481 total yards of offense against this sterling defense.
