Blitzalytics Analysis


Line Navy (-10) Over/Under 40.5 Against the Spread - Army (5-7) Navy (8-3)


The roles have reversed for these two teams compared to a year ago. In 2018, Navy was playing poorly and not going to a bowl game while Army finished the season with 11 wins. This year, Army has not been able to beat anyone of any substance while the Midshipmen played quite well on their side of the American Athletic Conference. While the teams’ yardage totals are relatively close on both sides of the ball, the Sagarin Schedule Strength has Navy with the 73rd hardest schedule while Army stands at 124.


The Degenerate Menace Says: A typical Army-Navy game sees the underdog cover the spread and the total number going under for the most part. In this decade, 8 of the 10 results were within one score and 7 of 10 scored less than 40 points. However, this year seems a little different as Army’s success has come on a very poor schedule. The computer thinks that it is going to be a blowout and there will actually be an over.


Prediction: Navy 35 - Army 14
