NCAA football betting fans are impressed with the job that Navy’s second year head coach Ken Niumatalolo has done with the NCAA betting lines in following Paul Johnson. It was Johnson who re-vamped the Navy program with the NCAA football betting community as he led the Mid Shipmen to 4 consecutive bowls before taking the Georgia Tech job.
Niumatalolo has picked up where Johnson left off with the NCAA betting lines as he took the Middies bowling last year and has them primed for another NCAA football betting post season appearance as Navy is now 5-2 straight up and 3-3-1 against the spread.
Navy won its 4th game in a row straight up last week with a 38-35 overtime thriller at SMU but failed to cover as 6.5 point NCAA football betting chalks. Navy is one of the best rushing teams in NCAA football betting as they rank 5th in the nation for yards on the ground.
Quarterback Ricky Dobbs has 579 yards rushing to lead the team and has 618 yards more via the air. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are coming off a 3-38 blowout loss at Clemson as 8.5-point dogs to fall to 4-3 straight up and 3-4 against the spread.
Wake Forrest is one of the better passing teams in NCAA football betting as quarterback Riley Skinner has 1776 yards, a 67% completion rate, and 15 touchdown passes but 9 costly interceptions.
Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe is one of the most respected leaders in NCAA football betting as he has performed one of the greatest turnarounds in the history of the game. The Deacs have bowled 3 consecutive years and won the ACC title as recently as 2006.
Navy has not been a good NCAA football betting commodity at home recently with just 1 payout in their last 5 games as a host. They have also gone under the total in 4 out of their last 6 home games.
Wake Forest has gotten the money in 4 out of their last 6 head to head matchups with Navy and the road team has covered 4 out of the last 5 in this series.
