EagleBank bowl betting kicks off the 2008 college football bowl season on Saturday as Wake Forest and Navy meet in Washington, D.C.
Earlier this season the Midshipmen defeated Wake Forest by a score of 24-17 but it is the Demon Deacons who are the three point favorite in Eagle Bank Bowl odds.
EagleBank bowl betting numbers reflect that the Demon Deacons are 6-3 in the all-time series against Navy including a 44-24 win last year. This is the third straight bowl appearance for Wake Forest as EagleBank Bowl betting statistics tell us. The Demon Deacons are 5-3 in eight previous bowl games as EagleBank bowl betting indicates. Last year Wake Forest defeated Connecticut 24-10 in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe is always well prepared for bowl games and that could explain some of Wake Forest’s success. Wake Forest was a big favorite against Navy earlier in the year but EagleBank bowl betting information shows that the Demon Deacons slipped after starting the season with three straight wins. At 4-3 they got two straight wins to go to 6-3 but lost two more before winning their finale against Vanderbilt to finish at 7-5. EagleBank bowl odds stats show that if Wake Forest defeats Navy they would end the year with eight wins for the third straight season.
EagleBank bowl betting tells us that Navy opened the season losing two of their first three games but then won three straight. They closed out the season winning four of their last five games to finish at 8-4 as EagleBank bowl betting statistics indicate. EagleBank bowl betting tells us that this is the sixth straight bowl appearance for Navy. It is the 15th overall postseason appearance for the Midshipmen according to EagleBank bowl betting numbers. According to EagleBank bowl odds stats at Navy is 6-7-1 in those games including last year’s 35-32 loss to Utah in the Poinsettia Bowl.
Wake Forest had trouble this year on offense as they only scored 20.3 points per game as EagleBank bowl betting stats show. Wake Forest won games because of their defense which held opponents to 18.2 points per game as EagleBank bowl betting shows. The Demon Deacons were 21st in the country against the run as EagleBank bowl odds statistics reflect and that is where this game will be decided since Navy has a great rushing attack.
