Navy vs. Tulane Picks, Odds and betting Preview | SEPTEMBER 19, 2020

Navy Midshipmen at Tulane Green Wave NCAA Football Betting

Owing to 12 years of proven success is Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo a highly respected coach.  He has helped the brand Navy as one of the top programs in college football.  Navy is coming off a stellar 11-2 season.  And a final national ranking of 20th.  All of which made last week’s College football betting blowout loss to BYU so stunning.  Navy was unprepared and outclassed.  For “Coach Ken” it was utter humiliation.  Counter to that is a Tulane team coming off the high of a comeback win.  Coach Willie Fritz continues to earn respect in his own right.

Navy Midshipmen at Tulane Green Wave CashBet Wagering Analysis

In the eyes of the masses, Navy remains an appealing program with the sportsbook odds.  Squares associate Navy with bowl games.  And wins over Army in “America’s Game.”  Tulane is not known to the casual public.  However, squares are quite aware of the Green Wave.  And find Tulane a consistently good wagering value.  On this occasion, the Green Wave could offer potentially better value than normal for a home team.  On the other hand, Navy’s terrible opener could trigger some overreaction.  Squares that found out may be eager to “pile on” the Midshipmen.

Is Navy a Sinking Ship?

First game betting on college football debacles can happen.  But a 55-3 home loss to BYU is unacceptable for a service academy.  Navy was obviously beaten within a few minutes of kickoff.  Of major concern was the Midshipmen getting outgained 580-149.  Such a defeat can cast doubts upon an entire season.  New starting quarterback Dalen Morris did not distinguish himself either.  In fact, he looked out of sync from the word go.  Anything and everything that could go wrong for Navy did.  Niumatalolo must now save the ship.

A Green Wave of a Comeback

Last week was a stirring 27-24 Tulane win at South Alabama.  Although the Green Wave failed to cover as an 11.5-point bet on NCAAF road chalks.  Consider that Tulane rallied from a 24-6 third-quarter deficit.  Amari Jones ran for a 16-yard touchdown to win the game with 3:18 to go.  Further, the Green Wave spoiled the inaugural game at South Alabama’s new Hancock Whitney Stadium.  Fritz has built one of the top rushing teams in America.  To illustrate Tulane gained 204 yards on 41 attempts.
