Army-Navy Betting Guide

  • Odds: Army -7
  • Over/Under: 40
  • Time: 3 p.m. ET
  • TV: CBS

The college football regular season has one game left — the 119th meeting between Army and Navy, a rivalry that’s been played every year since 1930. More important than that, though, is that the past 12 meetings have gone under the betting total.

After losing 14 straight in the series, Army will actually defend a two-game winning streak in Philadelphia on Saturday. Navy leads the all-time series 60-51-7. While Army has the Armed Force Bowl vs. Houston left after Saturday, this is Navy’s finale.

This is the biggest favorite Army has been in this game since 1991, and the first time its been favored at all since 2001.

Market Moves for Army-Navy

By Danny Donahue 

This point spread has seen both sides of a touchdown since opening, as Army has gone back and forth between a 6.5- and 7.5-point favorite. Seventy-four percent of bettors accounting for 72% of dollars have laid the points with the two-loss Black Knights, but that support hasn’t been enough to move their line significantly past -7.

The over/under has been the more interesting story in the betting market, as always in this game.
