Georgia vs. Baylor Odds, Pick
- Odds: Georgia -3.5
- Over/Under: 41
- Time: 8:45 p.m. ET
- TV: ESPN
- Location: New Orleans, La.
Georgia and Baylor both ended their seasons with conference title game losses, but they couldn’t have felt more different.
The Bears rallied to take Oklahoma to overtime, but just two years removed from a 1-11 campaign, 2019 feels like a massive success.
Georgia entered the season with high expectations as always, but the Dawgs offense never got it together, and they were blown out by LSU in the SEC title game.
Which team will be ready for the Sugar Bowl? And will the Dawgs be any more ready than they were in this game last year, when they lost to Texas as a big favorite?
Let’s break it down.

How Sugar Bowl Lines Have Moved
Georgia opened north of a touchdown favorite, and has fallen all the way to -4 with continued news that many of its best players will sit this game out.
Still, more than 55% of bettors are backing the Bulldogs.
How Motivated Will Georgia Be?
From a motivational perspective, I have serious questions about a Georgia team that had dreams of making it to the College Football Playoff while avenging its collapse in last year’s SEC Championship Game.
The Bulldogs achieved neither and now find themselves in the same bowl game against a Big 12 team once again. And we all know how that ended last year against Texas.
On the other hand, I’m confident that Baylor will be fully motivated here to take on an SEC team in the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Day. This is an enormous game for a program that is just two years removed from winning one game.
