Navy Midshipmen Odds

Prediction and Pick
However, Navy is also 7-4 against the spread this season. The Midshipmen have covered in four of their last five games, including in three of their last four as underdogs.
Why Army can cover
The Black Knights don’t have much of an aerial attack, but they’re among the best in the country at running the ball. Army ranks behind only Air Force (341.4) in rushing with an average of 301.2 yards per game after racking up 220 in its 31-16 victory at Liberty on Nov. 27.
Why Navy can cover
Prior to their 38-14 triumph over the Owls on Nov. 27, the Midshipmen hadn’t registered that many points in nearly two years, when they posted a 56-41 triumph over Houston on Nov. 30, 2019. Carlinos Acie led Navy’s seventh-ranked rushing attack against Temple with 86 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.
How to make Army vs. Navy picks
For Saturday’s contest, Hunt is leaning over on the point total, and he has also identified a critical X-factor he believes makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s sharing what it is, and which side of the Navy vs. Army spread he’s backing, only at SportsLine.
Army vs. Navy Odds
This battle for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy opened with Army listed -8, a number which has dipped slightly to 7-7.5, despite a very even distribution on both teams in terms of number of bets and handle.
Army vs. Navy Prediction
Despite this tough-to-swallow low number, we are firmly behind the under for this rivalry game.
Army vs. Navy Betting Pick
We will leave you with a couple trends which further bolster the under selection for this game. Army has played four of its last five games under the total against sub .500 foes, while Navy has played 7 of its last 10 under versus winning opposition.
Why Army Could Cover the Spread
The Black Knights are very clearly the better team here. They are 8-3 and are continuing to thrive under head coach Jeff Monken, who has succeeded fabulously as the coach at West Point over the past several years. Army is trying to win at least nine games in a season for the fourth time in five years.
Why Navy Could Cover the Spread
The Midshipmen will rely on the reality that Army-Navy games are hard-fought and close. Last year’s game ended 15-0 for Army, but Navy had a first and goal at the Army 2 in the third quarter and would have taken a 7-3 lead had it converted. Most of these battles between the Black Knights and Midshipmen are tight heading into the fourth quarter.
Final Army-Navy Prediction & Pick
Army beat Air Force 21-14 in overtime this year. Air Force beat Navy 23-3 this year. That means both Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy games featured fewer than 30 points scored in regulation (28 for Army-Air Force, 26 for Air Force-Navy).
Opening Odds Analysis
This could be the third time in four years that Army is favored by more than a touchdown over Navy, with the Black Knights going 2-0 SU and 1-1 ATS in those two previous contests. But the most notable number in the opening odds is the total, which is the lowest for any Army-Navy game in the Odds Shark database going back to 1995.
Army News & Notes
The Black Knights are going bowling for the fifth time in six years under head coach Jeff Monken, earning an invitation to face Missouri in the Armed Forces Bowl.
Navy News & Notes
Even though it’s been a tough season in Annapolis, the Midshipmen come into this game with a bit of momentum. Navy’s 38-14 win over Temple in late November marked the most points the Midshipmen have scored in the past two seasons, while their defense held the Owls to just 11 first downs and 182 total yards.
How Army Will Cover
Army’s been rolling since the end of October, winning its last three games by an average margin of 28 points. As long as the Black Knights don’t let down their guard and look ahead to the Armed Forces Bowl, they should be able to beat Navy by more than a touchdown.
How Navy Will Cover
Navy needs to play a cleaner game than it did last year, when 53 yards in penalties and a minus-1 in turnovers were too much to overcome in a 15-0 loss. The Midshipmen also need to get more production out of a passing game that completed just one pass for nine yards in last year’s meeting.
