College Football Betting Trends
Navy is 6-1 with the over in its last seven against a team with a losing record and 15-5 with the over in its last 20 games in November.
The Huskies have hit the under in seven of their last eight Friday games and in four of their last five home games.
These two have split the over/under in their last two meetings, but both totals were under 53 points. The Midshipmen shouldn’t have much problem on offense or defense this week. The UConn rushing defense is awful, so Navy should be able to pick up yardage in chunks and control the pace of play. Defensively, Navy is really solid and shouldn’t have an issues limiting the UConn offense. They were held to limited points by much lesser defenses. With Navy controlling the game on the ground, possessions should be limited as well which should help the under hit.
