Navy Midshipmen Face the Temple Owls: Week 2 NCAA Football Odds and Pick
The Temple Owls will be hard-pressed to duplicate last week's stunning upset road victory at Vanderbilt when they play their home opener against the Navy Midshipmen, who faded late in a 34-17 loss to Ohio State and failed to cover the spread for the first time in five games.
The Owls dropped their first six games last season en route to a disappointing 2-10 campaign and opened as 16-point underdogs at Vanderbilt, but they rewarded their backers who bet them all the way down to 8.5 in a 37-7 rout of the Commodores. The Middies were outscored 28-10 after halftime against the Buckeyes and had also covered seven of their previous eight going back to last year.
