Navy Midshipmen vs. Army Knights

Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA

When: Saturday, December 8, 3:00 PM. ET.

The Army Knights will be trying to extend their winning streak against the Navy Midshipmen to three games when they face off in their annual rivalry game on Saturday afternoon.

Navy Looking For Second Win In 10 Games

The season hasn’t gone as well as Navy had hoped it would go this year, with the team winning only three of their 12 games. Even though their season is lost and they won’t be playing in a bowl game this season, the Midshipmen can still end the season on a high note with a win over their bitter rivals, which will end their two-game losing streak against the Knights and give them their second win in their last 10 games.

Offensively, Navy played well this season, averaging 28.8 points per game. They continue to dominate opponents on the ground with their triple-option offense, averaging 288.9 rushing yards per game.

Malcolm Perry leads the team with 1,035 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. Nelson Smith has 402 yards and three touchdowns, while Anthony Gargiulo has 389 rushing yards this season.

Defense was the biggest problem the Midshipmen had this season, giving up 34.9 points per game. Navy was one of the worst teams against the run this season, giving up 189 rushing yards per game. They will need to play much better than they have this season if they want to stop Army’s rushing attack.

Knights Going For Eighth Consecutive Win

The Knights have played well this season and they will be trying to get their 10th win of the year with a win over their bitter rivals on Saturday, which will also give them their eighth consecutive win and 11th win in their last 12 games.

Despite this being a rivalry game, Army has to like its chances against Navy because they have one of the best running offenses in the country, averaging 303 rushing yards per game, and they are facing one of the worst run defenses.

The Knights are averaging 30.3 points per game thanks to players like Darnell Woolfolk, who leads the team with 823 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns, and Kelvin Hopkins Jr., who has 783 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Army has also done well on the defensive end, holding opponents to 18.7 points per game. The team hasn’t given up more than 14 points in each of its last three games and will try to keep the streak going against Navy.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Knights have played well against the spread, winning their last four games after a bye week and four of their last five neutral site games. The Midshipmen have struggled against the spread, losing their last four non-conference games and seven of their last 10 games.

Prediction: Army Knights -7

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone under in five of Navy’s last six games against Independents and in nine of the team’s last 12 neutral site games. The total has also gone under in five of Army’s last six games against AAC teams, and in the last 10 meetings between the two teams.

Prediction: Under 40

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The Knights are averaging 30.3 points per game and will go over 24.5 points in this game because Navy has struggled defensively, giving up 34.9 points per game.

Prediction: Army (N) – Total Points Over 24.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Knights will win the first half of this game because they have played better than the Midshipmen in the first half of their last three games, averaging 14.7 points per game while the Midshipmen average 11 points per game. Army has also been better on the defensive end, giving up 2.3 points per game while Navy is giving up 19.3 points per game.

Prediction: Army Knights -4.5

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Midshipmen and Knights are averaging 25.7 points per game in the first half of their last three games, but they will play under the total in the first half because Army’s defense will stifle Navy’s offense in the first half, keeping the score low.

Prediction: Under 20

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Knights are averaging 14.7 points per game in the first half of their last three games and they will go over 11.5 points in the first half of this game against a Navy team that is giving up 19.3 points in the first half.

Prediction: Army (N) – 1st Half Total Points Over 11.5
