Air Force Falcons vs. Navy Midshipmen
College Football Point Spread Pick: Navy -7.5 points (October 7th 2017)

I successfully played against these same Falcons last week, using New Mexico as Saturday’s complimentary selection. The Lobos would go on to destroy the Falcons by a whopping 56-38 margin. Not all that shocking when considering that this Air Force team lost 12 of its top 13 tacklers from last season. Don’t expect the Midshipmen to feel sorry for them.

Down 14-0 out of the gate at Tulsa, Navy also appeared in danger of getting upset last week. However, the Midshipmen responded by scoring 31 straight points, racking up more than 400 yards on the ground.

Now 4-0 for just the third time in the past 38 years, the second time in Coach Niumatalolo’s 10-year tenure, the Midshipmen should carry the momentum into this week’s big game.

The last four meetings in this series have all been decided by nine or more points. Air Force won by 14 last season and by nine in 2014, after Navy won by 22 in 2015 and by 18 in 2013. In what should ultimately result in another double-digit win, consider laying the points with the revenge-minded Midshipmen.

Ben Burns enters the new week off a 7-2 Sunday and on a 27-10 hot streak overall. Looking back further finds him at a blistering 51-22 his L73. Off that “special September,” expect an “awesome October!”
