UMASS vs. Army Pick Prediction 11/9/2019
UMASS at Army—College football pick is UMASS +35. Army is 3-6 and not as strong as previous seasons. Their offense is only averaging 339 yards and 24.7 points per game. Black Knights have failed to cover five of their past six games. Army is a run team but unlike Navy and Air Force this Black Knights team has no downfield threat with their passing game. So, they lack a big play passing attack so that means a lot of runs and clock moving which will limit possessions. UMASS can move the football as in their past three games posting 342 yards and 25.7 points per game. Line looks inflated in this spot as Army is not as strong as Navy and Air Force this season. UMASS generates enough points to cover here. Play UMASS +35.
