Will update with trends once they're released.
The Army Black Knights have been decent up to this point, especially on the offensive side, and they even hung around with Florida earlier in the season. However, the Colgate Raiders absolutely blasted Army in their season opener, winning 101-57 while shooting 65.1 percent from the field and making 12 threes. Things could obviously improve for Army, especially playing the same team twice in as many days, but yesterday was such a dominating victory that it's hard to expect the gap to be closed a whole lot.
I have no choice but to back the Colgate Raiders and whatever the line is once it's released. The Army Black Knights simply didn't look good in Saturday's loss to put it mildly.
