Navy can’t get on track
The Navy Midshipmen have lost six straight coming into this game, including a 42-0 loss at Cincinnati this past weekend. Navy is now 2-7 overall, 1-4 in the AAC, 1-8 against the spread and 5-4 with the over. Navy has failed to cover in seven straight.
Navy has really struggled on defense this year, averaging 36.2 points and 441.4 yards allowed per game. Offensively, Navy is averaging 25.1 points and 359.3 yards per game behind their triple option. They average 287.4 rushing yards per game. Malcolm Perry is leading the ground game with 882 yards and seven touchdowns while Garret Lewis has rushed for 257 yards and four scores and thrown for 398 yards and two touchdowns.
UCF continues to roll
Central Florida has continued its perfect season following a 52-40 win at home over Temple last week to move to 8-0 overall and 5-0 in the AAC. The Knights are 6-2 against the spread and 5-3 with the under. They have covered the spread in two straight games.
The Knights are rolling on both sides of the field. They are allowing just 20.9 points per game this year despite allowing 429.8 yards per contest. Offensively, UCF is averaging 45.4 points and 548.8 yards per game. McKenzie Milton has thrown for 2,109 yards and 19 touchdowns while rushing for 223 yards and seven touchdowns. Greg McCrae has rushed for 572 yards and three scores to lead the ground attack while three others have over 230 yards. Gabriel Davis is the leading receiver with 35 catches for 556 yards and five touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
Navy has failed to cover in four straight conference games and in its last five games on the road.
UCF has covered the spread in five straight on grass and four straight at home.
Navy isn’t the team we have remembered from the past. The Midshipmen are a mess on defense and not as dominating with its ground attack as it has been in the past. UCF has a much more dynamic offense and a defense capable of locking up this option. I don’t expect a letdown from UCF this weekend. Look for them to roll to another cover.
