Three things you should know before betting on Army-Navy: 

1. This has been the second-straight year that Navy football has struggled, but the Midshipmen have been more competitive down the stretch. They have covered in seven of their last nine games and are coming off of a 38-14 victory on the road against the Temple Owls. Navy is also coming off a 15-0 loss to Army in this game last year, so the Midshipmen will be looking for revenge in this one. They might not win it outright, but they're getting more than a touchdown in a game between two low-scoring teams. 

2. Since the start of the 2019 season, Navy is 13-4 against the spread when coming off a game that went Over the total. The Midshipmen are also 4-1 against the spread when playing as neutral-field underdogs of 7.5 to 14 points under Ken Niumatalolo. In that same span, Navy is 33-17 straight-up and 34-15-1 against the spread when coming off a game in which the team scored at least 37 points. 

3. In what might seem like an impossible feat, the Under has hit in each of the last 15 meetings between Army and Navy. In those 15 games, these teams have combined to score just 34.1 points per game. That's less than the number the oddsmakers have on this one. The Under is also 6-2 in Army's last eight games, and it's 5-2 in Navy's last seven.
