Betting on the Navy Midshipmen (+20.5)
Record: 2-6 Overall / 2-4 Conference
With Navy, you pretty much have a good idea what you’re going to see: lots of rushing plays. The Midshipmen are third in the nation with 63.57 rushing attempts per game and 14th with 224.0 rushing yards per contest. The disparity between the two stats’ rankings is a bit noticeable, but in any case, Navy is going to keep on giving handcuffs and run. In the Midshipmen’s 20-17 road win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane last Saturday, they recorded zero passing yards on three pass attempts but racked up 302 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Notre Dame just let North Carolina Tar Heels quarterback Same Howell rush for 101 yards against its defense, offering a glimpse of what could happen to the Fighting Irish when they try to slow down Navy’s ground attack.
Navy is 5-1 against the spread in its last six games
Betting on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-20.5)
Record: 7-1 Overall / 0-0 Conference
Notre Dame is coming off a shootout with the Tar Heels over the weekend, coming away with a 44-34 victory. The Fighting Irish are now 3-0 straight-up in their last three games, which also includes wins against the Virginia Tech Hokies on the road and the USC Trojans at home. Jack Coan passed for 213 yards and a touchdown on 16/24 completions against North Carolina, while Kyren Williams exploded for 202 rushing yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. Williams has the better defense behind him than Navy’s rushers, so if the Midshipmen want to turn the upcoming game into a track meet, it’s likely that Notre Dame will come away with the more efficient numbers. Navy is allowing 30.0 points per game and owns a mediocre 3.4 sack rate. The Fighting Irish can still air it out and have success against Navy.
Notre Dame is 3-1 against the spread in its last four games as the home team.
Notre Dame wins, 31-17.
