College Football: Army vs Navy
There is one college football game this Saturday, and that is between #23 Navy and Army. Navy is a 10.5 point favorite, and the over/under is 40.5 points. Navy is -400 with the money line while Army is +320. This will be the 120th Army-Navy game. Regardless of the outcome, Navy will be playing against Kansas State- who were the only team to beat Oklahoma this year, in the Liberty Bowl. So while that bowl game no doubt is their primary focus, they still don't want to overlook Army as it is a huge rivalry game, and if they win that game, they'll have a shot at the Commander-in-Chief Trophy, which is awarded to the team that wins the mini-tournament between Army, Navy, and Air Force. Navy was on a 14 game winning streak, a streak that came to an end in 2016, and Navy has not won since that streak ended.
Army does not have a chance at the trophy since they lost to Air Force earlier this year, and at 5-9, they won't be playing in a bowl game this year either, but they have a shot to play spoiler against Navy at least, as well as have bragging rights among these two teams for a year. The last few games between these two teams have all been very close, with the winning margin coming by one possession. Navy is much better than Army this year, and so I do think they win by two possessions, and cover that 10.5 point spread, which will give them some momentum in the Liberty Bowl, which I think Kansas State will ultimately win. After this game, the college football bowl season will be here. This game kicks off Saturday at 12:00 pm PT from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
