Navy (8-4) battles Arizona St. (7-5) in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Saturday at 4:00ET. College football picks are located at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
Navy opened the year losing three of its first four games, including lopsided losses to Penn St. and Notre Dame, in Ireland. Since then they have won seven of eight, including wins over Air Force and Army. They have not been impressive against the spread over that run though, only covering once in their past six games.
Arizona St. started out the year great, winning five of six. However, they hit a major speed bump once they hit the meat of the Pac-12 schedule, dropping four in a row against Oregon, UCLA, Oregon St., and USC. They finished the year with wins against Washington St. and in-state rival Arizona. They are 7-5 for the year SU and ATS, and are one of the few teams that covered the games they won straight up, and lost the ones they didn’t.
Arizona St. is a 14 point favorite. While Navy hasn’t done well against the spread, it is typically because they are favored. The last three games Navy has been an underdog, they have won straight up. Take Navy +14 and look for the upset but first read sportsbook reviews.
