Boyd’s 2009 Capital One Bowl Picks

If you are looking to cash in on January 1st, then take a look at the premium bowl picks offered by Jimmy Boyd and his staff.  He has burnt the midnight oil looking at the bowl game odds and he’s came up with a few winners he feels great about.  If you aren’t ready to step up quite yet and make a purchase, then take a look at the free play he has going for today on the Georgia Bulldogs:

The Preseason No. 1 ranked Bulldogs did not finish the year where they started, but they survived one of the toughest schedules in the country to end a up a respectable 9-3.  Both teams lost their last regular season game and will want to bounce back with a win in the bowl, but I give the Bulldogs the edge.  Michigan State really didn’t play good football in any of its last 5 games.  It was crushed by Ohio State and Penn State, only edged out a down Wisconsin team by a point, and trailed late against the worst Michigan team ever during that stretch.  While Michigan State lives and dies with being able to run the football, the Bulldogs have a more balanced attack with Knowshon Moreno carrying and Matthew Stafford passing and that will be the difference.  Georgia is 19-5 ATS in road non-conference games since 1992, winning by an average of 10.1 ppg in these spots.  Georgia is also 16-6 ATS in road games after a bye week since 1992.  With plenty of time to regroup and prepare, I’ll take the more talented team here.
