  • Read below for the best Army vs Navy player props to bet for Saturday

One of the greatest rivalries in college football will be renewed when Army and Navy square off in their annual rivalry game in Foxborough on Saturday. Player props have been released for the lone college football game on the Saturday schedule.

Among our recommended Army vs Navy player prop bets is a play on the rushing yards total for Army quarterback Bryson Daily. We also have a +680 value play on a Navy fullback to get into the endzone.

Let’s get into the Army vs Navy props as we offer you are top player props for Saturday’s college football game.

Army vs Navy Player Props

Quarterback Rushing Yards Rushing Touchdowns
Bryson Daily 64.5 (Ov -118 / Un -118) OFF
Alex Tecza 49.5 (Ov -102 / Un -134) OFF
Receiver Receiving Yards Receiving Touchdowns
Brandon Chatman 19.5 (Ov -122 / Un -114) OFF
E. Heidenreich 18.5 (Ov -118 / Un -118) OFF

In the Army vs Navy player props odds at ESPN Sportsbook, Black Night’s pivot Bryson Daily has the higher rushing total of the two quarterbacks at 64.5 yards.

The game total is only set at 27.5, meaning oddsmakers don’t project much offense from the two academy schools. Make sure you also check out our Army vs Navy prediction for an ATS pick.

Pick #1: Bryson Daily OVER 64.5 Rushing Yards

The top Army vs Navy player prop picks we have locked in for Saturday’s Academy game is the “over” on the rushing yards total for Black Knights quarterback Bryson Daily. ESPN Bet is offering this number at 64.5, and we think Daily gets over this number facing a Navy run defense that hasn’t been overly impressive.

Daily leads the Black Knights with 817 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns, including 94 yards and a TD on 22 carries against Coastal Carolina last weekend. The junior has rushed for at least 80 yards in three straight games and has only been held under 60 rushing yards in three games.

Army only throws the ball on 22% of their offensive snaps, so Daily should see enough volume (20 projected carries) to surpass 65 yards. In the last two Army vs Navy games, the Black Knights QB has averaged 74 rushing yards, and we project the trend to continue Saturday.

  • Pick: Bryson Daily OVER 64.5 Rushing Yards (-118 at ESPN Bet )

Army vs Navy Touchdown Props

Player To Score A Touchdown First Touchdown Scorer
Alex Tecza Yes +275 / No -425 Yes +1100 / No -3000
Ay’Jaun Marshall Yes +275 / No -425 Yes +800 / No -1800
Brandon Chatman Yes +315 / No -500 Yes +550 / No -1000
Bryson Daily Yes +165 / No -235 Yes +1800 / No -5000
Daba Fofana Yes +550 / No -1100 Yes +1100 / No -3000
Eli Heidenreich Yes +315 / No -500 Yes +315 / No -500
Jakobi Buchanan Yes +315 / No -500 Yes +800 / No -1800

In the Army vs Navy touchdown scorer props, there is no heavy favorite to find the endzone. Amy’s Bryson Daily has the best odds at +165, which is pretty solid value considering he’s rushed for four scores in his past four games.

We’re turning to a longshot for our official pick, but certainly considering locking in Daily for an anytime TD in addition to the earlier bet we recommended.

Pick #2: Daba Fofana Anytime TD

The second Army vs Navy player prop bet we’re focusing on for Saturday is a value play on Navy fullback Daba Fofana to score a touchdown. Fofana has found the endzone in two of his last three games and has experience playing in this game, getting 11 carries in last year’s meeting.

At 5’8 and 205 lbs, Fofana has the power and physicality to break tackles at the point of attack and the speed to break big gains. After leading Navy with 769 rushing yards and six touchdowns in his sophomore season, Fofana has slipped down the depth chart, although he still ranks second on the team in total yardage.

Fofana is still being undervalued given his skill-set, especially at FanDuel where you can get this bet for +680 odds. Much like Army, Navy will be heavily reliant on their ground game Saturday, as they throw the football on just 25% of their offensive snaps. The Army run defense has given up nine TDs on the ground to FBS running backs.

  • Pick: Daba Fofana Anytime TD (+680 at FanDuel )
