Go Army Beat Navy!! Army to win by 10+ points, BOOSTED to +140 (previously +105)
In this year’s edition of the Army/Navy game, the Black Knights come in boasting an 8-3 record with the 2nd best rushing attack in the nation, averaging over 301.2 yards per game. Not to be outdone in terms of a 1950s run game, the Midshipmen rank 7th in rushing yards per game, averaging 228.7 yards on the ground.
The under for this game is typically a good bet with two ground-and-pound offenses who bleed the clock. However, the current number sits at 35 total points and Army averages 35.5 points per game. On the other side, Navy’s defense allows 29.6 points per game. Suddenly, that under does not seem like a sure-fire bet anymore.
But after diving into the seasonal ranks for both rushing offenses and defenses, it’s clear who the more dominate team coming into this matchup is, and that’s the Black Knights. Their defense currently ranks 11th in the nation in rushing yards allowed to opponents this season at 103.6 per game.
The better rushing attack and better defense to beat a 3-8 rival by more than 10 points? Yes please, and thank you Parx for the incredible boost.
