ARMY (-6.0) 26 Tulane 20

Over/Under Total: 45.0

Army's option offense should work pretty well against Tulane's soft run defense (234 run yards allowed per game at 5.6 yprp) and Tulane's Joe Kemp will have success throwing the ball against an Army defense that has allowed 5.9 yards per pass play to horrible passing teams that would combine to average only 4.3 yppp against an average defensive team.

My math model actually favors Tulane by 1 point in this game, but Army applies to a very good 262-141-6 ATS statistical match-up indicator and an 81-28 ATS statistical indicator. I'll have to pass this one.
