This is a series that has been dominated by Navy in recent meetings as the Midshipmen has won 11 straight against the Army Black Knights. But Army has improved the past few years while Navy peaked a few years ago and may be slightly worst since Paul Johnson took the Georgia Tech job. Army has covered the spread in their past two head to head meetings. In 2011 it was Navy winning 27-21 as a -7 point wagering favorite. When these two teams faced off in 2012 it was Navy winning 17-13 as a -6 ½ point wagering favorite. The under the total has been money going 7-0 in their past seven games. We stay away from under here as Army seems to have picked up their offense. Army played Stanford tough in a circle game this season losing just 34-20 as a +30 ½ point wagering underdog. Stanford is a solid running team and when Army got up for this game made a great showing as they were competitive in this spot. The Black Knights have shown by their result against Stanford that they are capable of being competitive in this game with Navy on Saturday. Navy is a difficult team to prepare for. They can be competitive at times against BCS schools who often overlook them because the Midshipmen runs an option offense that is rarely run these days because big time programs prefer the entertaining passing style of offense which generates greater revenue for the school. Two option offenses here means Army knows what is coming and can cover this inflated point spread on this game based on Navy’s results against BCS schools.
With our college football pick for Saturday we will play on the Army Black Knights +13 ½ points against the Navy Midshipmen but first check out the sports odds.
