Georgia Bulldogs vs Baylor Bears 01/01/2020 Picks, Previews and Predictions
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Georgia Bulldogs vs Baylor Bears 01/01/2020 – The Georgia Bulldogs and the Baylor Bears clash in the Sugar Bowl, a game pitting losers from their respective conferences. Football betting lines favor the Bulldogs to come out on top despite a disappointing loss to LSU in the SEC Championship Game. A possible reason for this is because Georgia won the four previous meetings against the Bears. The last time they faced each other was way back in 1989.
Georgia Bulldogs vs Baylor Bears 01/01/2020
Georgia Bulldogs are expected to bounce back against Baylor following a thrashing at the hands of LSU. That booted them out of the College Football playoffs, giving Oklahoma that distinction instead. However, they can gain some sort of consolation by winning the Sugar Bowl. Jake Fromm will have to play well to make that happen. This season, the Bulldogs quarterback has completed 214 of 355 passes for 2,610 yards with 22 touchdowns and five interceptions. To achieve victory, Georgia needs to continue the same kind of defense they have shown all season long. They are allowing opponents just 12.5 points and 274.5 yards per game this season.
Players to watch:
J. Fromm QB (214 CMP 355 ATT 2610 YDS 60.3 CMP% 7.4 AVG 60 LNG 22 TD 5 INT 12 SACK -84 SYL 139.7 RTG), D. Swift RB (195 ATT 1216 YDS 6.2 AVG 47 LNG 7 TD), B.

Like Georgia, Baylor lost the chance to make the College Football playoffs. They lost to Oklahoma in overtime in the Big 12 championship game, a contest where they used three quarterbacks. QB Charlie Brewer will anchor the Bears offense anew. This season, he has 2,950 yards with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. However, the Bears have shown great defense as well. They are limiting opponents to only 19.3 points and 358.3 yards per game.
Players to watch:
C. Brewer QB (227 CMP 348 ATT 2950 YDS 65.2 CMP% 8.5 AVG 78 LNG 20 TD 6 INT 29 SACK -181 SYL 152 RTG), J. Lovett RB (100 ATT 637 YDS 6.4 AVG 46 LNG 5 TD), J.
