NCAA College Football Betting Spread: Navy -15

Total: 55.5 points

We have recently encountered a number of “traditional” college football betting rivalries, some of which have had a bearing on the national title picture. But there is one rivalry that, although it will not affect the final rankings, may indeed stand alone as the biggest one of them all. On Saturday this game will be contested for the 85th time, as the Midshipmen of the Naval Academy and the Cadets of West Point get together in the Army-Navy game, slated to kick off at 3 PM ET at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

While this is a great rivalry, and unique in the sense that the entire student body of both institutions are in attendance, that does not necessarily mean that it has been ultra-competitive of late. In fact, Navy has won the last twelve meetings (the longest winning streak in this series), and is once again bowl-eligible (in fact, they will be facing San Diego State in the Poinsettia Bowl in ten days’ time), while as BetAnySports MasterCard Online Sportsbooks USA customers know, Army is still trying to rebuild its program.

Navy is 6-5 straight-up on the season, with a 5-6 mark against the football pointspread. Army is 4-7, both straight-up and against the college football odds.

With regard to how these teams have performed on the “big stage,” Navy has clearly been more competitive. In the season opener against Ohio State, the Midshipmen perhaps got lucky catching the Buckeyes having to replace quarterback Braxton Miller with JT Barrett. And they did manage to run for 370 yards on the OSU defense in a 34-17 defeat. Navy scored wins over Temple, Georgia Southern and South Alabama, and gave Notre Dame life-and-death, with a lead in the fourth quarter before falling victim to a comeback by the Irish in the 49-39 loss.

Army did score victories over Ball State, Buffalo and UConn, and did get to within a field goal of Wake Forest. but got shut out 35-0 by Stanford, and lost in overtime to Yale, which plays in the FCS-level Ivy League. Both of these teams lost to Air Force, which thus won the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy.

The single most important weapon for BetAnySports patrons to consider is Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds, who is one of the best running QB’s in the country, whichever way you slice it. Reynolds, who missed two games this season with injuries, scored 20 touchdowns on the ground and exploded for 251 yards against San Jose State and 27 against Georgia Southern, another option team. In terms of passing, he was so-so, with 749 yards and five TD’s on 45% completions. Last year he ran for 136 yards and three touchdowns against Army.

Navy also has four other ball-carriers with at least 25 attempts who have averaged eight yards or more. The most notable is Noel Copeland (859 yards). Angel Santiago is a little less formidable directing the Cadets’ attack. as he averages 4.4 yards per carry and threw only one touchdown pass. Army had just three TD passes as a team, which is nothing out of the ordinary, since they only had six in the two previous seasons.

Obviously there should be very little mystery among BetAnySports customers as to what these teams will do – Navy is ranked second in the nation in rushing, while Army is sixth. There was a TOTAL of 60 passing yards in last year’s meeting.

Army has surrendered 34.4 ppg, and has scored at least 33 points in all of its victories. Navy has not been in one game where the total has been less than 51 points, and they have yielded just a shade below 30 points per contest. Neither has stopped the run very well; Army yields 5.5 yards per carry, while Navy has given up slightly less than five. This model has not been a whole lot different than it has been for these teams n recent years, yet there have been eight straight meetings between the two that have gone under the total in the college football betting odds, with an average of about 38 points a game.
