When Navy hosted Air Force in Week 2, the Falcons opened the game with a seven-play, 12-yard drive that ended with a punt. It was the first of seven punts to start the game as the teams combined for 25 total yards of offense and zero points over the first 16 minutes of a game that began with an over/under total of 39.5 points.
Even with 16 total points scored by Air Force over a six-minute period of the second half – two touchdowns and one safety – the under hit by nearly two full touchdowns in the Falcons’ 23-3 win. It was the sixth straight under in college football betting for a game involving two service academies.
There have been 49 matchups of Army-Air Force, Army-Navy, and Air Force-Navy since 2005. The under is 39-9-1 over that time:
The under has hit by an average of 7.9 points over those 49 games, in 21 of which the under hit by at least 10 points, including the Air Force-Navy game in Week 2.
In order to reach a seven-game under streak, Army and Air Force must combine for fewer than 37 points (the total at BetMGM as of Tuesday, Nov. 2) in Week 10. The pair is responsible for four of the nine overs since 2005, though the under is still 11-4-1 in those matchups, including an active eight-game winning streak.
