Army and Navy will close out the 2012 college football regular season this weekend when they square off at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Saturday’s meeting between the two service academies is scheduled to get underway at 3:00pm ET on CBS. College Football Odds have the Midshipmen listed as a -7 pick against the spread favorite; the game total is set at 56.5 points.
Navy Midshipmen vs Army Black Knights (+7, Over/Under 56.5): Army looked as though it had turned the corner under head coach Rich Ellerson when it posted a 6-6 record and won the Armed Forces Bowl in 2010, but the program has since regressed. The Black Knights finished 3-9 last season and they enter this weekend’s game with a 2-9 record. Army has turned in a few solid efforts, though, taking Northern Illinois to the wire (41-40) and beating Air Force 41-21. The Black Knights have one last opportunity to leave a positive impression, but it may be difficult to do so given how well Navy has played down the stretch. The Middies, who are slated to face Arizona State in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, got off to an ugly 1-3 start, but they have won six of their last seven games. Navy has also won eight of its last 10 meetings with Army, including the last two where it beat the Black Knights 31-17 and 27-21. College Football Odds Betting Trend: The Midshipmen are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games as a favorite with a total of 54.5 or more (6-4 straight up in those games).
