  • The annual Navy-Notre Dame game goes this weekend as the Fighting Irish invade Jacksonville to take on the Midshipmen looking for their sixth straight series victory. ND is having a down year in 2016 so the spread in this game is closer than usual in a series that has been heavily dominated by the Indiana Irish.

    • The total has gone OVER in Notre Dame's last 6 games against Navy.
    • Notre Dame is 7-0 SU in its last 7 games against the American Athletic Conference.
    • The total has gone UNDER in 3 of Navy's last 4 games against teams with losing records.

    Despite a loss last week, Navy sits in first place in the AAC West with a 4-1 conference record and public money is pouring in on their line that opened with them giving 4.5 points to Notre Dame. The Midshipmen have covered in five of their eight games this season and missed covering in their three ATS losses by an average of just a point.

    Despite their winning streak against Navy, the Notre Dame football program has really struggled out of the gates, owns a dismal 3-5 record and is on pace to have its worst year since 2003. Notre Dame has had very little fight in its last nine games in Week 11, covering just once in those matchups.

    The computer is predicting that Navy comes away with a straight-up win in this rivalry game so a bet on their plus points line seems like a reasonable one.
