Jack’s 2009 Capital One Bowl Picks

Jack Jones was fairly confident yesterday that Georgia would put a beating down on Michigan State, and that is why he called the game his blood bath.  If you didn’t come out on the right side with your bowl picks then you can still get some help from our experts.  There are plenty of games left on the slate.  If you want to go at it alone then take a look at the analysis offered by Jack to see why he liked the the Bulldogs:

15* Double Digit Bowl Blood Bath on Georgia -7.5

Michigan State hasn’t seen a back nearly as good as Knowshon Moreno this year as he has both speed and power.  Moreno has racked up 1,338 yards and 16 touchdowns this year while averaging 5.9 yards per carry.  Moreno’s 27 catches also show that he can be a threat in the passing game as well.  Georgia also has a capable quarterback in Matthew Stafford, who has completed 61% of his passes for 3,209 yards and 22 touchdowns against nine interceptions.  The passing game is helped by a pair of talented receivers in Mohamed Massaquoi and A.J. Green, who both have eight touchdowns receptions to their credit. Massaquoi has posted 57 catches for 910 yards, while Green has caught 55 balls for 951 yards. They are averaging 16.0 ypc and 17.3 ypc, respectively, proof of the big-play ability that both players possess.  Sure the Georgia defense has given up a lot of points this year, but not all that many total yards.  Michigan State has a one-dimensional offense that relies too heavily on the run game, and that just isn’t going to cut it against a talented SEC defense like the Bulldogs have.
