Navy Midshipmen at Memphis Tigers
After taking a 42-3 throttling by Notre Dame in their opener, Navy was able to right the ship and defeated Wagner 24-0 last week. They held Wagner under 150 yards through the air and under 100 yards on the ground.
They forced 2 turnovers while committing none themselves. While Navy went over the 400 total yard mark, 163 of those yards came through the air. Tai Lavatai led them through the air and was the 2nd leading rusher.
Memphis has made short work of both of their opponents to start the season. Bethune-Cookman lost 56-14 in Memphis while Arkansas State hosted the Tigers and were dropped 37-3. Seth Henigan completed over 72% of his passes and tossed 2 touchdowns without a pick.
Blake Watson was given 20 carries but could only muster 51 yards on them. They held Arkansas St to just 65 yards on the ground but will be tested by the run-heavy Navy offense. They forced 4 turnovers while holding Arkansas St to just 3 of 14 on 3rd down.
Navy looked a bit better last week against Wagner but this Memphis team is a much more advanced program compared to Wagner. With their ability to stuff the run, Memphis could get up on Navy early and that will spell imminent doom for Navy. Memphis should be able to get separation prior to the half and just casually add on in the 2nd half.
Key Betting Trends for Navy at Memphis:
If Navy is forced to pass the ball midway through the game, their offense will be in extreme trouble. We expect Memphis to be able to shut them down and put up most of the total points.
That said, Memphis could potentially drop 35-38 points and this under could still come home, we are expecting something close to 31-13 in this one. Take the Under with confidence!
