Army Black Knights Looking for Their 6th Win of 2022

The Army Black Knights are 5-6 this season, with wins over the Villanova Wildcats (49-10), Colgate Raiders (42-17), UL Monroe Warhawks (48-24), UConn Huskies (34-17), and UMass Minutemen (44-7).

As you can see, when the Black Knights win, they blow out their opponents. Still, one should keep in mind that all of their 2022 wins happened against teams that are very poor in defense.

When playing against rivals that have good defensive teams, Army usually doesn’t do that great. In fact, in five of their five losses of the season, we saw them score under 20 points. The obvious next question is whether the Navy Midshipmen have good enough defense to stop the Black Knights?

All Eyes on Navy’s Defense

It’s very likely the Midshipmen won’t do great in the offense in the Army-Navy game on Saturday. The thing is that they’re without their starting quarterback Tai Lavatai who suffered a season-ending injury on October 29.

Since then, the Midshipmen are 1-2 with Xavier Arline in the role of their starting signal-caller. Although he hasn’t been great in terms of passing, he’s been pretty decent rushing-wise scoring a TD in each of his previous two games.

That said, we should expect Navy to score a couple of TDs, but not too many. Instead, the key to victory in Saturday’s game is to do well defensively. So, can they tame Army’s offense?

The Midshipmen are 4-7 on the season with 24.77 PPG against them, which makes their defense the fourth-best in the American Athletic Conference (ACC).  

Army vs Navy Prediction

There shouldn’t be too many points in this game. We expect to see no more than four TDs in total, which is why one of our picks is “under 33”. And what about our Army vs Navy moneyline pick? It’s really a coin toss, this one. Still, we’re gonna go with Army, the no.1 reason being that Navy will miss its arguably best ball-thrower.

Picks: Army Black Knights to win; under 33 points
