Army-Navy Betting Evaluation
Current history has been sort to underdogs in this collection. Relationship again to 1995, the underdog has received the video game outright on 4 occasions (1996, 2000, 2016, and 2017). All through Navy’s 14-yr extend of dominance from 2002-15, Military lined the spread six times (2006, ’09, ’11, ’12, ’14, and ’15).
History also favors the ‘under’, and in a big way — the guess is on a 15-sport run in the sequence. Really should his complete maintain at 35.5 or significantly less, however, it will be the most affordable whole considering that at minimum 1995.
Every crew has had just 1 match this season wherever much less than 34 points ended up scored. Army, in simple fact, has scored 38+ by by itself five periods this period. Nonetheless, it is hard to go against a 15- betting trend.
Even though the underdog — Navy in this scenario — should not be underestimated in this rivalry, 6 of Army’s 8 wins have been by double-digits this period. This game likely tends to make it 7 of nine.
