A lot has been made about Navy only returning 9 starters , but that is of no matter to me, as the recruiting class that Niumatalolo has on board,is more than capable of taking out lower tier opponents with ease via a triple option offense that is extremely hard to stop, when not having experienced it regularly ie ( Florida Atlantic). I expect Zach Abey The 6'2", 212-pound junior who after being thrown into his first game because of injury to the Middies starter struggled in his proverbial first kick at the cat. But going forward after that ugly effort he performed much better in the Armed Forces Bowl, rushing for 114 yards and passing for another 159 and looks primed to be even smoother this season, behind a deep crew of powerful backs. On defense, Navy has 6 returning starters and look primed for a stellar season.
I know a lot has been made about Lane Kiffin the new coach of Florida Atlantic, but he will have some monumental problems trying to reformulate a FAU front four that was disastrous last season, allowing close to 3,000 rushing yards and 37 scores. Early on in this season, Im betting Lanes D is not ready for what's coming their way.
I'm projecting that Navy puts 28 or more points on the board-FLA ATLANTIC is 0-10 ATS L/10 when they allow 28 or more points.
A home team Florida Atlantic - in the first month of the season, after closing out last season with 2 or more straight losses against opponent in the first month of the season, bowl team from prior season who lost their last 3 games are 6-30 ATS dating back 25 seasons.FLA ATLANTIC is also 0-6 ATS L/6 in home lined games.
Play on Navy to cover
Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #281 Take San Francisco 49ers +4.5 over Minnesota Vikings (Sunday 8 pm NBC) We have seen that many of the big underdogs have been covering the spread during the first two weeks of the exhibition season. Expect that trend to continue Sunday with the last game of Week 3. Minnesota has been a cash cow in the preseason under Mike Zimmer but that changed last week in Seattle and I do not see them blowing out the 49ers in this game. San Francisco got blown out last week against Denver and expect them to rebound in a big way tonight in ideal dome conditions. Kyle Shanahan will approach this game like a regular season game for his first unit and that should allow them to take this game down to the wire. Do not miss out on Doc’s Sports NFL Preseason Game of the Year that takes place during Week 3 of the NFL Preseason. This game was an easy winner in 2016, Tennessee +3 over Oakland and you can purchase this play right here, right now!
The situation and schedule favors Ottawa in this one. Both teams played last Friday. The Redbacks "got healthy" with a momentum-building 37-18 win over Hamilton. With that game being played in southern Ontario, there was no travel between time zones. The Lions, on the other hand, are off a "deflating" 21-17 setback, on the West Coast, against Calgary. That close loss was preceded by a 41-8 thrashing at the hands of Saskatchewan. I think the Redblacks are probably catching them at the right time. Consider Ottawa.
Play - Jacksonville Jaguars (Game 254).
Edges - Jaguars: 3-0 SUATS all-time preseason home following a home loss… Panthers: 0-3 SUATS Game Three preseason… With the Jags playing with two extra days of rest advantage in this contest, we recommend a 1* play on Jacksonville. Thank you and good luck as always.

This is a 1* Free Play on the UNDER Nationals/Astros.
A couple of capable hurlers collide in this interleague matchup and runs would appear to be at a premium.
Stephen Strasburg: He’s 10-4 with a 3.24 ERA. Strasburg returned from the DL and gave up two runs off four hits to go along with six K’s over six innings a loss to the Padres on Thursday. Strasburg looked good overall, with his fastball hitting the upper 90’s (note that he’s 7-2 with a 2.43 ERA on the road this season.)
Dallas Keuchel: He’s 11-2 with a 2.58 ERA. Keuchel gave up three hits while striking out three over seven scoreless in a 3-1 victory over the A’s on Friday. Keuchel now has two straight strong outings underneath his belt and he has to be feeling confident in this spot despite facing the hard-hitting Nats, as he’s 5-1 with a tiny 1.35 ERA at home so far this year.
The bottom line: We’re expecting these studs to battle deep and for this total to ultimately stay UNDER the posted number once it’s all said and done.
