The betting preview with point spread and line on the Sugar Bowl game Hawaii vs. Georgia.

Sugar Bowl line and point spread: Hawaii vs. Georgia How long will the No.10 Hawaii Warriors (12-0) stay unbeaten will be decided during the Sugar Bowl game when they meet a worthy opponent - the No.4 Georgia Bulldogs (10-2). Hawaii had no problem this season holding on to the WAC leadership and the Georgia Bulldogs took home the SEC East. Hawaii quarterback and Heisman Trophy finalist Colt Brennan was quoted saying that no one can stop the Warriors, but the odds makers beg to differ. The betting firm Bookmaker has listed the Hawaii Warriors as underdog for the 2008 Sugar Bowl. The point spread on the Hawaii vs. Georgia Sugar Bowl game is favoring the Bulldogs -8 points and the total is listed at 70 points. The Hawaii Warriors are betting line underdog, as well, the line on Hawaii sitting at +255 and the Bulldogs will hold the betting line -305 on winning the bowl game on January 1st.

 Although defensively the Georgia Bulldogs have the edge, allowing 21 points on average, compare to Hawaii with 24.2 points per game, the power of the Warriors will come from their 5th-ranked offense, with 537.3 yards per game, compared to Georgia's 391.3 yards on average per game. Hawaii is also converting these yards into points for 46.2 points scored per game to rank second in the NCAA, while the Georgia Bulldogs convert to 31.9 points per game. If these stats remain relative in the Sugar Bowl game, the finals score could bring upset to the bookies. So far only two Hawaii players will miss the Sugar Bowl game - DB Keao Monteilh and DE Francis Maka. At the Georgia camp, running back Kregg Lumpkin is out indefinitely, LB Chris Gaunder and NaDerris Ward remain questionable for the Sugar Bowl game with injuries. Georgia is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games and Hawaii is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games. The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Hawaii's last 5 games.
