Navy Vs Temple Odds & Final Score PredictionNoah Williams
Navy battles American Athletic Conference rival Temple in College Football Week 10. The game kicks off at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA at 8:00 pm ET this Thursday, Nov. 2.
The Navy Midshipmen are 3-2-2 against the spread this season. Navy is 5 and 2 straight up. Temple is 3 and 5 straight up. Temple is also 3 and 5 against the spread.
Navy Vs Temple Odds & Final Score Prediction
Navy is a big -8 favorite over Temple. The line opened at Navy -7. The total is 55. The total has gone down 3 points from its 58 opening.
Bet on Navy -8 because…
Navy is the best rushing team in college football. The Navy Midshipmen average a ridiculous 376.1 rushing yards per game. Since Navy only passes for 94.6 yards per game, every single one of Navy’s wins have come via the rush. There are few defenses in college football that can handle Navy’s rush.
Bet on Temple +8 because…
Temple has gone 3 and 1 ATS in their last 4 games. The Owls have covered spreads versus Houston, East Carolina, and Army. The cover versus Army is particularly telling. Like Navy, Army relies on a strong rushing attack. Army averages 362 yards on the ground per game. Temple only lost 28 to 31 as a +7.5 dog in their game versus Army.
Navy Vs Temple Final Score Prediction
The most telling trend in this game is that Navy is 1 and 4 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these 2. Could it be that Temple simply knows how to play against the Navy Midshipmen?
Maybe. More likely, the reason Navy’s had trouble ATS versus Temple in the past 5 games is because Temple’s fielded some competitive teams. The Owls are usually one of the top teams in the conference.
This is a rebuilding year for Temple. It’s doubtful that the Owls score 28 opponents versus Navy the way that they did versus Army. Navy has a much better defense than Army does.
I believe the Midshipmen’s’ excellent rushing attack leads to a blowout win. I’m laying the points on Navy.
My final score prediction is Navy 43, Temple 24
