College Football Odds: Navy -15

Navy has thrown the ball just 115 times all season long and figure to keep that number low this coming Saturday against another run dominant Army squad. They’ve relied heavily on Keenan Reynolds to transport the strain since the quarterback leads the team with 205 carries for 1,082 yards. The team’s leading running back is Noah Copeland, a large fullback who’s averaging 8.2 yards per carry this year and has recently ran for a career-high 859 yards. Navy has had the opportunity to go the ball on a lawn and score points against all their opponents this year, even the ranked ones, which explains why it’s expected they run throughout the Army Black Knights this Saturday and try their finest to cover a 15-point spread. The Navy defense has been nothing special this year, holding opponents to under 20 points one time, helping to make this match-up a toss up because of the two plus touchdown spread.

The Black Knights haven’t even thrown the football 100 times this year, and just like the Midshipmen they’re also a squad that has a running quarterback who’s leading the team in carries and features a shot at finishing the summer season with over 1,000 yards on the ground. Angel Santiago could be the senior signal-caller for Army, and with only three career touchdown passes it’s obvious he wont be airing out the ball this coming Saturday. This is a game where you are able to expect 80 or more combined rushing attempts, helping to make for a interesting match-up since the team who breaks more long runs is usually the one who likely can become on top. Army’s offense hasn’t been as consistent as that of the Midshipmen, meaning this game could escape hand early if Navy arrives willing to play.
