Army-Navy Game In College Football Spotlight Saturday

Navy Midshipmen vs. Army Black Knights
College Football Betting Preview
Date: 12/08/2012 at 3:00 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: Navy -8½, O/U 57
Television: CBS

Navy Midshipmen: The Commander-in-Chief Trophy is up for grabs as the Middies (7-4 straight-up, 4-7 against the spread) prepare for battle with the Cadets in Philadelphia. Navy last took to the gridiron three weeks ago with a 21-10 win over Texas State, just missing the cover as a 12-point home favorite. The Midshipmen rushed for over 400 yards in the game for a third time this season, and Noah Copeland led the way with 110 yards on 17 carries, two of them crossing the goal line for touchdowns. Gee Gee Greene leads the team with 750 rushing yards on the year, followed by Copeland (592) and quarterback Keenan Reynolds (585), who also has 754 passing yards and an 8:1 TD-to-interception ratio. Navy has won the last 10 meetings with Army and stands 56-49-7 all-time in the series. The last six clashes have stayed "under" the total, and the Middies are 7-3 to the low side of the scoreboard this season.

Army Black Knights: Despite just two wins on the campaign, the Cadets (2-9 SU, 3-8 ATS) can still lay claim to a successful season with a victory on Saturday, which would give them their first Commander-in-Chief Trophy since 1996. Army has had three weeks to digest a 63-32 pounding at the hands of Rutgers in a game that saw the two teams combine for over 900 yards rushing, 534 of those belonging to the Scarlet Knights. The Black Knights ran for over 400 yards in the contest, the fifth time this year they have topped the 400-yard rushing plateau in a game, as they sit atop the national rankings with nearly 370 yards per contest on the ground. Quarterback Trent Steelman leads the team with 1,152 rushing yards and 16 TDs, and he is joined in the 1,000-yard club by Raymond Maples (1,059). Though they have lost the last 10 games vs. Navy, the West Pointers have covered three of the last six, including last season's 27-21 defeat as touchdown underdogs.

Nevada Meets Arizona In New Mexico Bowl Saturday

Nevada Wolf Pack vs. Arizona Wildcats
New Mexico Bowl Betting Preview
Date: 12/15/2012 at 1:00 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: Arizona -9, O/U 76
Television: ESPN

Nevada Wolf Pack: Oddsmakers are expecting the bowl season to kick off with a high-scoring affair at the New Mexico Bowl where the Wolf Pack (7-5 straight-up, 3-9 against the spread) collide with the Wildcats. Nevada faltered down the stretch with four setbacks in the final five contests, including home losses to San Diego State, Fresno State and Boise State to finish a disappointing fifth in the Mountain West Conference. The Pack had one of the top ground games in the nation (260.0 yards per game, 7th), paced by Stefphon Jefferson's 1,703 yards on the ground (second in the country). Nevada also ranked 20th in scoring with a 37 points per game, but that was offset by a defense that surrendered 32.5 ppg, ranked 95th in the nation. Wolf Pack backers endured a seven-game losing streak from late-September through November, a string that was snapped with the cover vs. Boise, and "over" bettors had a slight 6-5 advantage on the year.

Arizona Wildcats: It was a trying season for Coach Rich Rodriguez and the 'Cats (7-5 SU, 6-6 ATS) who could manage just a 4-5 record in Pac-12 play (4-5 ATS). The highlight of the regular season turned out to be a 39-36 upset of USC as 5-point underdogs in late-October. Running back Ka'Deem Carey led Arizona and the nation with over 1,750 yards rushing, picking up nearly 6.4 yards per tote, and quarterback Matt Scott ranked 16th in the land with over 294 yards per game through the air. Only four schools allowed more yards on defense than the Wildcats (485.7 ypg), and opponents scored 34.3 ppg, which ranked 103rd. With those stats, it's no wonder that "over" bettors cashed eight of 11 lined games, including seven of the last eight on the schedule. Arizona was also guilty of 25 turnovers, tied for 30th most, four of those coming in the 41-34 loss to rival Arizona State in the regular-season finale.

Potato Bowl Features Toledo Against Utah State Saturday

Toledo Rockets vs. Utah State Aggies
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Betting Preview
Date: 12/15/2012 at 4:30 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: Utah St. -10, O/U 57½
Television: ESPN

Toledo Rockets: Things were looking up for the Rockets (9-3 straight-up, 7-5 against the spread) when they reeled off an eighth straight win and were on the verge of cracking the polls at the end of October. But Toledo dropped its next two games to Ball State and Northern Illinois to finish third in the MAC West. The Rockets ended the campaign on a winning note with a 35-23 win over Akron despite missing their two offensive stars, quarterback Terrance Owens and tailback David Fluellen. Owens passed for more than 2,600 yards and 14 touchdowns while ranking second on the team with 381 yards rushing, and Fluellen was eighth in the country, averaging nearly 133 yards per game on the ground. The good news is both are listed as probable for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (click to check updated college football injury report). The Rockets finished the season with five consecutive "under" results and were 8-3 to the low side of totals on the year.

Utah State Aggies: One of the most profitable teams to follow this season, the Aggies (10-2 SU, 10-1-1 ATS) netted nearly nine units of profit for their backers while also putting money in the pockets of "under" bettors with an 8-3 record. Utah State ended a perfect campaign in the WAC with a 45-9 trouncing of Idaho in the regular-season finale, the only point spread loss for the Aggies with the final margin just missing the closing 37-point spread. The only two SU defeats came on the road and were decided by a total of five points (16-14 at Wisconsin and 6-3 at BYU). Utah State finished eighth in the country, allowing just 15.4 points per game, and ranked 15th in surrendering less than 323 yards per contest. Sophomore QB Chuckie Keeton directed a well-balanced offense with more than 3,100 yards through the air and a 27:9 TD/INT ratio. His 527 yards on the ground were second on the team to Kerwynn Williams' 1,277.

New Mexico Bowl: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Mexico Bowl: Nevada Wolf Pack vs. Arizona Wildcats (-9.5, 75.5)

GILDAN NEW MEXICO BOWL STORYLINES

1. The game will feature two of the nation's top four runners in Arizona sophomore Ka'Deem Carey (second) and Nevada junior Stefphon Jefferson (fourth). Carey’s 1,757 rushing yards is already a single-season school record while Jefferson stands at 1,703 yards and needs 30 to break the Wolf Pack’s single-season mark.

2. The stage is set for both runners to have memorable games. Nevada, which ranks seventh in the country in rushing and 20th in scoring, will square off against Arizona’s 89th-ranked rush defense and 103rd scoring defense. Similarly, the Wildcats’ ground game and scoring offense – both ranked 17th in the nation – will face the Wolf Pack’s 112th-ranked rush defense and 95th-ranked scoring defense.

3. Two of college football’s most innovative coaches will be matching wits for the first time. Arizona’s Rich Rodriguez is considered as a pioneer of a no-huddle, run-oriented version of the spread offense while Nevada’s Chris Ault is credited as the creator of the “Pistol” offense that has only accentuated the athletic ability of quarterbacks such as Colin Kaepernick since he began using it in 2005.

TV: 1 p.m. ET, ESPN.

LINE: Arizona opened as an 8-point favorite and has been bet up as high as -10. The total has climbed from 75 to 75.5.

WEATHER: There is a 9 percent chance of snow for University Stadium and temperatures will dip into the high 30s. Winds are expected to blow west at 8 mph.

CONSENSUS: 54 percent of Covers Consensus players are picking Arizona while 53 percent are on the over.

TRENDS:

* Wolf Pack are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games.
* Wildcats are 1-4 ATS in their last five vs. MWC.
* Under is 5-1 in Wolf Pack's last six Bowl games.
* Over is 7-1 in Wildcats' last eight games overall.

ABOUT NEVADA (7-5, 4-4 Mountain West, 3-9 ATS): Unlike the “Pistol” attack that saw the quarterback (Kaepernick) overshadow the running back (Vai Taua) two years ago, Jefferson has been the main beneficiary this season. But sophomore quarterback Cody Fajardo certainly did his best impression of Kaepernick in 2012, throwing for 2,530 yards and 17 touchdowns while running for 981 yards and 11 more scores. However, the Wolf Pack – and the defense in particular – have been in a tailspin since a 6-1 start as they went 0-4 against the top four teams in their conference over the second half of the schedule. In those four losses, Nevada surrendered an average of 277 rushing yards, 471 total yards and 41.5 points.

ABOUT ARIZONA (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12, 6-6 ATS): While the running game is the primary focus, the passing game is hardly without playmakers. Sophomore receiver Austin Hill posted 1,189 receiving yards and nine receiving touchdowns – the fourth and seventh-best single-season totals in school history, respectively – while Matt Scott’s 3,238 passing yards is the third-highest mark for a Wildcats quarterback in a season. Despite all the offensive success and surprising wins over the likes of Oklahoma State and USC, this is the same team that scored a combined 10 points in losses to Oregon and UCLA. Rodriguez’s seven wins in his rookie campaign were the most by an Arizona coach in his first season since Jim Young led the Wildcats to an 8-3 mark in 1973.

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: Toledo Rockets vs. Utah State Aggies (-10, 58.5)

FAMOUS IDAHO POTATO BOWL STORYLINES

1. Toledo’s talented running back David Fluellen and quarterback Terrance Owens both missed the last regular-season game on Nov. 20 against Akron with ankle injuries, but will have almost four weeks to recover.

2. Utah State set a school record for victories this season, won an outright conference title for the first time since 1936 by finishing 6-0 in the Western Athletic Conference and tries to win its first bowl game since 1993.

3. Toledo averages 32.9 points and 456.1 yards (28th in the nation), while 20th-ranked Utah State is eighth in the nation in scoring defense (15.4) and 15th in total defense.

TV: 4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN.

LINE: Utah State opened as low as -8 and has been bet up to as high as -10.5. The total has moved from 57.5 to 58.5.

WEATHER: Snow is in the forecast for Boise, with an 18 percent chance of precipitation. Temperatures will be in the low 30s.

CONSENSUS: 53 percent of Covers Consensus players are on Utah State while 60 percent are on the over.

TRENDS:

* Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last five vs. WAC.
* Aggies are 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 non-conference games.
* Under is 5-0 in Rockets' last five games overall.
* Under is 6-0 in Aggies' last six non-conference games.

ABOUT TOLEDO (9-3, 6-2 MAC, 7-5 ATS): The Rockets hope to have Fluellen and Owens back for Utah State, although senior quarterback Austin Dantin threw for five touchdowns and David Pasquale rushed for 93 yards in the 35-23 victory over Akron to end the regular season. The versatile Fluellen fuels the Rockets' offense, averaging 132.7 yards with 13 touchdowns. Owens, who has completed 62.8 percent of his passes and averaged 243.4 yards through the air, has also thrown for 14 scores. Bernard Reedy is the top target with 82 receptions for 1,051 yards. The Rockets will need some big plays from their defense, which has 17 interceptions but has allowed an average of 27.3 points. Toledo edged Air Force 42-41 in the Military Bowl last year to improve its bowl record to 8-4.

ABOUT UTAH STATE (10-2, 6-0 WAC, 10-1-1 ATS): The Aggies come into the game with six straight victories and have won 15 of their last 18 overall. Utah State lost 24-23 in the Potato Bowl last year to Toledo’s MAC rival Ohio and its two defeats this season have come by a combined five points to Wisconsin (16-14) and Brigham Young (6-3). The Aggies are the only team in the nation not to allow a touchdown in the first quarter. Utah State’s offense has also produced, averaging more than 30 points led by quarterback Chuckie Keeton. The sophomore has completed 67.6 percent of his passes, thrown for 27 touchdowns and rushed for more than 500 yards. Senior running back Kerwynn Williams leads the team in rushing (1,277 yards) and receiving (663), while scoring 17 times. The Aggies are 1-6 in bowls.
