Usually the game is a week earlier in NCAA football betting but it was moved back this year to give the game the entire spotlight.
College football betting has Navy favored in this game as the Midshipmen are 8-4 while Army is 5-6. The extra week off is definitely different but it should help both teams with the extra rest. "Having an extra week is a little strange," said Army defensive tackle Victor Ugenyi, "It helps us out, it gets a lot of people healthy, hopefully, and it gives us more time to g o over Navy's plays. ... But we're trying not to get overanxious."
Navy has done very well in this college football betting series of late, winning the last seven and rarely have the games been close. Navy has won the last seven in NCAA football betting against Army by an average of 29 points per game. With a win, Navy would win the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy for the seventh straight season.
Saturday’s college football betting game has even more important for Army than normal if that is possible in an Army-Navy game since a win by Army would get them bowl eligible and put them into the EagleBank Bowl. "The fact that there's so much on the line is gratifying," said Army head coach Rich Ellerson, "We've done just well enough to make it meaningful on a lot of different levels. It's wholly appropriate that the Army-Navy classic is the venue for this next adventure."
