Navy vs. Army

Navy vs. Army college football betting odds were available from which was one of the only books offering Navy at -10 ½ compared to everywhere else that had them at -11.  The discrepancy in the line is due to Navy being 7-4 compared to Army at 3-8.

The home team, however, is 8-2 in this popular series with Army being clobbered at home by Navy in 2003 and Navy losing by only 4 points at home in 1998.  Now we should point out that this series has taken place at Navy the past 4 meetings.  Navy is 6-0 the last 6, beating Army each time by more than the current spread.  It goes without saying that Navy will have no problem covering the 10 ½ points even as a road favorite Saturday. Navy has won the last six games, by a combined count of 240-71.

Can Army, which has lost three straight games and faces its third straight 3-9 final record, compete this year?

 "I think that we'll be competitive and I believe we have the opportunity to win the game," says Brock. "Our players believe that we have a good chance to win the game, and that's a big part of it.

"We are getting better and I think the job they have done throughout the season has been spectacular."

The Midshipmen are trying to win their sixth straight and their 10th in the last 12 games against Army. They are also trying for their sixth straight Commander-In-Chief's Trophy and their 13th win in a row in the series with Army and Air Force. Even if it loses, leaving all three teams 1-1 in the series, the Mids get to keep the trophy, which stays with last year's winner under the rules.

President Bush will be on hand in Philadelphia, where the Mids are 11-point favorites to chalk up their eighth win of the year. believes this will be one of the most bet on games of the College Football weekend.  Again, we like Navy to cover the -10 ½ spread at
