Baylor plays Georgia in the Sugar Bowl at 7:45 God’s time zone tonight on ESPN.

Georgia is currently favored by 4.5 points, which means a lot of money has come in on Baylor since the line initially opened up around 8 points.

This match-up is one where both defense’s have to feel very good when facing the other offense. Georgia wants to establish the run and eventually hit some big plays either in the play action passing game or pop one of their runs, but Baylor is extremely stout against the run and does not give up many big passing plays. When Baylor has the ball, they will likely struggle against Georgia’s incredibly stout front 7 and will have to earn every yard.

This is likely a game where every touchdown feels like 3 scores and will have lots of defensive stops in-between. Whichever team can eclipse the teens likely wins.
