Navy vs. ND Pick
No. 19 Notre Dame continues its pursuit for a BCS Bowl on Saturday when the Fighting Irish host Navy at 2:30PM ET from Notre Dame Stadium.
Bet Navy at Notre Dame
The Irish are 6-2 on the season and 2-6 against the spread. Notre Dame defeated Washington State 40-14 last week to end a streak of six-straight games where the Irish had a game decided by seven points or less. Both of Notre Dame’s covers this year came at home. Notre Dame is 44-1 all-time against Navy following a triple overtime loss in 2007.
Navy is 6-3 this season and 4-4-1 against the spread. The Midshipemen are coming off a 27-24 loss to Temple last weekend, which ended a five-game winning streak. Navy has won three games by three points this season.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made Notre Dame 11-point home favorites over Navy on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 55.5.
Notre Dame’s offense has the ability to score a lot of points against Navy this week, as Jimmy Clausen has thrown for 2,318 yards with 18 touchdowns to just two interceptions.
The key in this game will be the Irish’s ability to slow down the Navy rushing attack. The Irish are giving up just 123 rushing yards per-game and it looks as if Navy’s style of play will work in Notre Dame’s favor.
We pick Notre Dame to be able to cover the spread this week as the Midshipmen won’t be able to stop the Irish passing game and the Irish should be able to keep Navy from scoring too many points with Navy’s run-heavy offense. The over/under total seems a big high for a game of this nature, so we pick the under in this one.
