Temple vs Navy Trends
TEM is 1-0 against the spread, with a 1-0 O/U record
NAVY is 0-1 ATS, with a 0-1 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Navy’s hosting this tournament, but they don’t come into the field in the best of shape, as their offense looked non-existent in the opener. After struggling with Campbell, there’s a good chance Temple gives them trouble here on both ends of the floor. The Owls come in with more of an identity, and they should have little trouble dispatching the Midshipmen. Now if Navy decides to play up as hosts, then the low total has a good shot of being reached, but let’s back Temple to take care of business here in MD.
