The Falcons 21-5 ATS in their last 26 non-conference games
The UNDER has cashed in 6 of Air Force’s last 7 non-conference games
The Midshipmen are 21-10-1 ATS in their last 32 at home
The UNDER has cashed in 23 of Navy’s last 34 following a loss straight up
With Donnie Hammond III under center the Air Force does not have to rely just on running the ball and the addition of a passing threat by the Falcons has added to the difficulty of defending against Air Force. The Falcons have covered the number in 4 of the last 5 versus Navy, while the Midshipmen have failed to cover 5 of the last 6 versus an opponent that plays above .500. Final Score Prediction, Air Force Falcons win and cover ATS 32-27
