2019 Army-Navy Game Breakdown

This weekend, after conference championships, bowl games, and the playoff picture have all been decided, we are treated to one of the greatest traditions in college football. Army and Navy face off in the lone FBS football game of the week on Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, making it a true neutral-site game. Navy leads the all-time series 60-52-7, but Army is making a surge in recent years with a 3-game win streak (which also happened to come on the heels of a 14-game losing streak in the matchup.) This season the betting markets have Navy favored by 10.5 points, with the total set at 41 points and dropping.

Both FanDuel and DraftKings have posted single-game contests for this storied matchup, with a $40,000 tournament on DraftKings ($10,000 to first) and a $15,000 tournament on FanDuel ($3,000 to first.)

Navy's Season

The Navy Midshipmen enter this game 9-2 after a strong campaign in the American Athletic Conference. Head coach Ken Niumatalolo followed up his first losing season in charge of Navy's football team with an ultra-impressive strength-of-record. According to Football Reference's SRS statistic, their 9-2 mark is objectively the 19th-most-impressive season in FBS football, and only 18 other teams could have been expected to play as well or better than them, given their schedule and results. Overall, the Midshipmen's 2019 campaign has been a return to normalcy under Niumatalolo, as the team ranks 34th in the nation, according to SP+, entering this weekend's game.
