The Tulane Green Wave and Navy Midshipmen meet Saturday in college football action at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
The Tulane Green Wave look to stay hot after winning four of their last five games. The Tulane Green Wave have split their last six road games. Justin McMillan is completing 57.5 percent of his passes for 1,229 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. McMillan has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last eight games. Darnell Mooney and Jalen McCleskey have combined for 652 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Amare Jones has 23 receptions. The Tulane Green Wave ground game is averaging 267.7 yards per contest, and Justin McMillan leads the way with 390 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Tulane is allowing 23.1 points and 346.9 yards per game. P.J. Hall leads the Tulane Green Wave with 35 tackles, Patrick Johnson has three sacks and Larry Brooks has two interceptions.
The Navy Midshipmen look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Navy Midshipmen have won their last five home games. Malcolm Perry is completing 60 percent of his passes for 489 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. The Navy Midshipmen have eight touchdown passes dating back to last season. CJ Williams and Mychal Cooper have combined for 317 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Ryan Mitchell has three receptions. The Navy Midshipmen ground game is averaging 345 yards per contest, and Perry leads the way with 792 yards and 14 touchdowns. Defensively, Navy is allowing 16.2 points and 282.5 yards per game. Diego Fagot leads the Navy Midshipmen with 42 tackles, Jacob Springer has five sacks and Kevin Brennan has one interception.
The Green Wave are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Midshipmen are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 3-7-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The road team is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the underdog is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Midshipmen last 5 games in October. The over is 4-1 in Green Wave last 5 games overall.
The Tulane Green Wave have failed to cover five of their last six games as a road underdog. The Navy Midshipmen have covered seven of their last nine games as a home favorite. The Tulane Green Wave struggled to move the football on the road last week against Memphis and now has to play back to back road games, which is never easy on the college level. Tulane isn't the same football team on the road as it is at home. The Navy Midshipmen have been rather consistent this year with an offense that's running teams over and a defense that's one of it's better units in recent memory. Laying the reasonable chalk with Navy at home is one of the better bets on Saturday's card.
