Army-Navy, Plus Bowl Picks

December 9, 2017 by Staff

The computer's picks, based on the Congrove Computer Rankings at, are now available for this week's Army-Navy game, plus all 39 bowl games.

Twenty-six bowl games, or a full two-thirds, have projected margins of less than a touchdown. Of those, 10 are under 2 points, and six are under a single point.

The College Football Playoff semifinal games are among those with the slimmest of margins. Georgia has 0.07-point edge over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl, and Alabama gets a 0.58-point nod over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl.

The computer disagrees with the oddsmakers on who the outright winner will be in three games.

Meanwhile, the computer also disagrees with the oddsmakers on this week's Army-Navy game. The Midshipmen opened as the 3-1/2-point favorite, but the computer takes the Black Knights by 2.66.

Please note that the Army-Navy outcome could mildly affect the computer's projections for the bowl games. It will definitely have an impact on the respective bowl games involving Army and Navy. Any variations will be updated after this Saturday's game.
