The Army vs. Navy rivalry dates back to 1890 and the two service academies have squared off 123 times in the 133 years since. The 2023 Army-Navy Game will take place on Saturday and both teams enter at 5-6 looking for a win to earn a .500 record on the season. However, there's a lot more than records on the line as well, with a Black Knights win granting them their 10th Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, while a Navy win would force a three-way split that would allow Air Force to retain.
This year's Army-Navy Game will be held at Gillette Stadium just outside of Boston and kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET. The latest Army vs. Navy odds from the SportsLine consensus list the Black Knights as 2.5-point favorites, while the over/under is 28.5 with the Under hitting in each of the last 16 games of this series that ended in regulation.

Why Army can cover
The Black Knights got off to a hot start in 2023 with wins in two of their first three games but hit the mid-season skids with a five-game losing streak. However, they've responded by winning their last three games, including a 23-3 victory against a ranked Air Force squad that was favored by 18.5 points.
Quarterback Bryson Daily led the charge in that upset of Air Force with 170 yards on the ground and a pair of rushing touchdowns. He's now rushed for 347 yards and three scores during Army's winning streak and Army will be hoping that he can continue his best stretch of football this season. See picks at SportsLine.
Why Navy can cover
The Midshipmen got off to a rough start this season, losing to each of the first three FBS opponents they faced. However, they got things back on track by winning four of seven down the stretch and all five of their victories on the season came in games where they forced multiple turnovers. Navy forced 24 turnovers on the season, which is tied for sixth in that category, and the Midshipmen hope to take advantage of an Army squad that turned the ball over 22 times in 11 games.
Navy holds a 62-54-7 advantage in the all-time series and Army has struggled when it hasn't been playing the role of underdog this season. The Black Knights are 0-3 straight up in games they were favored against FBS opponents. Navy quarterback Xavier Arline will be under center after rushing for 102 yards and throwing a 25-yard touchdown pass in last year's Army-Navy game. See picks at SportsLine.
