The Holy Cross Crusaders and Navy Midshipmen face off on Sunday in a college basketball showdown at Navy Alumni Hall. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Holy Cross vs Navy prediction.

Holy Cross Looks to Build on Last Game

Holy Cross in the last game faced off against Bucknell and they were able to secure the victory. The Holy Cross defense gave up only 59 points and that led to the 12 point victory. Caleb Kenney had a strong game putting up 25 points and 11 rebounds. Holy Cross on the season is averaging 65.6 points while their defnese is giving up 73.8 points per game. The defense hasn’t been good enough overall and the defense is going to need to be better. Joe Octave has been the top player for Holy Cross averaging 13.8 points while shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 28.3 percent from behind the three point line.

Navy Looks to Build on Last Game

Navy in the last game faced off against Loyola Maryland in the last game and they scored 69 points on the way to the victory. Two games ago against Boston, Navy gave up 74 points and the defense can’t have a repeat of that game. Navy is averaging 66.4 points while their defense is giving up 67.7 points per game. The defense is ranked 69th but the offense has been inconsistent. Austin Benigni is averaging 16.4 points while shooting 39.5 percent from the field and 23.4 percent from behind the three point line. 

Holy Cross vs Navy Betting Prediction

I expect Holy Cross is going to find a way to keep this game close. Holy Cross is averaging 65.6 points per game and they have an offense that is going to be able to keep pace here. The only real concern I have with Holy Cross is the defense, but their defense is going gto make the stops. Navy’s offense isn’t exactly elite and they aren’t going to run up the score here. Back Holy Cross against the spread.
