ARMY is 2-6-1 ATS, with a 4-5 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Coastal Carolina has a chance to spoil a pair of seasons, as they face an undefeated JMU team on the blue turf, and a win here over Army could end the Cadets of going to a bowl game. If Grayson McCall was playing, I’d be sold on CCU to win this one, but with the visitors coming with their third-string quarterback, I like leaning on another motivated outing from the Black Knights. Army went to Colorado and left a bad taste in Air Force’s mouth, while blemishing their record, so let’s spot them the points here at home, with going bowling in mind.
