Army at UTSA Betting Odds

  • Odds: Army -17
  • Over/Under: 45
  • Time: Saturday, 3:30 p.m.  ET
  • TV: NFL Network

After breaking my own service academy betting rule of thumb last week by fading Army, I won’t make that mistake again this week.

That does mean we’ll be fading Army again but this time as a double-digit favorite. Fading the three service academy schools (Army, Navy and Air Force) as favorites has been profitable, especially when favored by 10 or more.

In fact, only Florida State and Notre Dame have been less profitable as favorites over the past 15 years. A $100 bettor would be down -$1,561 if they backed the Black Knights in the 56 games they’ve been favored in since 2005.

And this isn’t just some random trend without merit. It actually has logic.
