Navy is 7-0 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 6-1 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. The Midshipmen are also 12-4 ATS in their last 16 conference games and 16-7-1 ATS in their last 24 games overall.
Meanwhile, the Bulls are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games after an ATS loss and 5-2 ATS versus a team with a losing record. USF is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last six after an ATS win.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Navy, but there’s not a whole lot of luster on this matchup with the teams being a combined 4-11. The Midshipmen have managed some nice points totals this season, with 21 or more in five of their seven games. Navy does give up a ton of points on the other side, but so does USF. This should be a pretty high-scoring game and a fun one to watch, but I think Navy sticks it out on a cover.
