At the beginning of the season were questions about the Navy being on a downward trend. Head coach Ken Niumatalolo’s program was coming off the worst season of his tenure. However, the Midshipmen have bounced back strong for 2019. Navy has been one of the most profitable teams on the College Football betting Board. In the same way, Notre Dame has been a reliable wagering value this season. However, losses at Georgia and Michigan exposed the Fighting Irish as the second tier. Head coach Brian Kelly’s Fighting Irish have been off a notch offensively.
