Army vs Navy NCAA Football Wagering Lines and Game Day Call

Battle lines have been drawn as a new day dawns on the 113th meeting between the United States Military Academy and the United States Naval Academy as they battle for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy today.

This is the final regular season game on the 2012 NCAAF schedule and we never miss it. Kickoff is slated for 3:00 PM ET, on Saturday, December 8, 2012, from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.

Naval Academy: Sailing with a ten game winning streak

One has to go back to 2001 to find the last time that the Midshipmen lost to the Black Nights in this annual rivalry series. Navy has beaten up on Army by a 349-112 combined count over the past decade – including their 27-21 victory last December. Navy started the season slow at 1-3 before turning it on to finish with a 7-4 record. The Midshipmen resurrected their season with a 28-21 OT win in Week 5 against Air Force and they’ve won six of their last seven games.

Military Academy: Looking to end long series drought versus Navy

Trying to end Navy’s decade of dominance will be a tall order for Army as they limp into this game with a 2-7 record. Like the Midshipmen, the Black Nights also beat Air Force but their victory was a 41-21 blowout win back in Week 9. Army has attempted just 110 passes, compared to 739 rushing attempts, during the 2012 NCAA college football season. The Boys in Black are coming off a 63-32 Week 9 trampling by Temple and this will be their final game of the season.

Sportsbook Review Navy vs Army Betting Odds and Prediction is the “War Room” for our wagering lines and game planning for this Service Academy battle. After the number stayed on -7 for most of the week, Navy is down to a -6.5 point spread favorite today. The Midshipmen are -285 chalk on the money line and Army has been marked with a +245 straight up line. The game total is set at a lofty 56.5 points but that number hasn’t been reached since Navy beat Army 42-23 back in 2005. We like the UNDER but won’t be betting on it.

Since both of these clubs beat Air Force earlier in the year, the Falcons two year grip on the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy will end today. Despite being on their way to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, Navy won’t look past Army here. These clubs finished 84th and 85th in points scored in 2012. Navy was a far superior at 36th in points allowed while Army was 112th and gave up 37 points per game. We’ll set sail with the Navy (-285 ML) and a 5% bankroll wager at TopBet!
