Kelso Army Navy 40 Unit Side Total Parlay
Navy Will Try To Regain Some Respect Against Army
Army (9-2) And Navy (3-9) Meet For The 119th Time Today With The Black Knights Solid 7.5-Point Favorites While Navy Looks For Redemption In Worst Season Since 2011
The two service academy teams will again meet at Franklin Financial Field—home of the Philadelphia Eagles—ad will be honored with the presence of President Trump who will oversee the coin toss. He will be the tenth sitting president to attend the game, a tradition that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. As tradition has it, the president will sit on the Navy side of the field for a half and on the Army side the other half.
Navy leads the all-time series 60-51-7 but Army has won the last two games, both as an underdog, by a combined total of four points, this coming after losing 14 straight.
Army, which lost only at Duke, 34-14, and at Oklahoma, 28-21, during the regular season is a 6.5-point favorite, down a notch from an earlier -7, with a total of 40 points, down from 41.5. Las Vegas bookmakers say they are getting solid two-way action on the game.
This year’s contest should be an old-time ball control ground game. Army has the second-leading rushing game (303.0 yards per game) while the Midshipman check in third in this category (288.5 points per outing). It is of note the Black Knights lead the nation in the averaging time of possession at 39 minutes, 15 seconds. Army paces the nation in third-down percentage (57.1) and is also an eye-popping 30-for-33 on fourth down - also No. 1 nationally - while Navy converts 39.2 percent on third down.
The teams had two common opponents this season: The Black Knights defeated Hawaii 28-21 and Air Force 17-14 while the Midshipmen lost 59-41 and 35-7, respectively.
I believe this game is tailor made for a 40-unit side/total parlay and I am going to release it just that way, a bet on the side, a bet on the total and the parlay. You can go 3-0 with this play and win it for just $14, charged to your major credit card.
