Navy vs. Houston Odds
The AAC West champion will be determined today at Noon when No. 16 Navy brings its top-level rushing attack to face No. 21 Houston.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Navy is favored on the road in this game, as the Midshipmen are getting odds of -4 points against the Cougars today. The over/under total for the game has been set at 61 points. These two meet today at Noon ET on ABC.
Navy is looking to complete a perfect run through the AAC, as the Midshipmen are 9-1 on the season and 7-0 in the AAC. They are also an impressive 8-2 against the spread this season thanks to their rushing attack. Navy is second in the nation in rushing, averaging 348.4 yards per game. Keenan Reynolds is a big reason for that, as the quarterback has run for 1,009 yards and 18 touchdowns this season while also throwing for 652 yards and five scores. Reynolds is still getting some Heisman consideration, as oddsmakers list him at 33/1 to win right now. Along with Reynolds, Chris Swain has added 820 rushing yards and eight touchdowns this season.
Houston is 6-1 in the AAC and 10-1 overall. With a win today, the Cougars earn the division title. Houston isn’t known for a tremendous defense, but their big issues come against the pass, where they rank 104th nationally. The Cougars’ run defense is actually 11th in the nation, allowing just 114.8 yards per game. However, in last week’s loss to Connecticut, the Cougars gave up 156 yards on the ground, including 114 to Arkeel Newsome. Navy will certainly attack on the ground with its unique triple option offense.
