The over is 12-5 in Army’s last 17 road games. The over is 6-2 in Holy Cross’s last eight games overall. The over is 6-2 in Holy Cross last eight home games.
I expect that there will be more scoring in this game and both teams are going to struggle to keep this game close. Back the over to cash. In terms of the side there really isn't a strong play either way and is something that should be avoided.
