Armed Forces Bowl Betting Odds & Picks: Air Force Vs James Madison


There are lots of things to love about the holiday season, but for football fans, it may well be that we have football coming just about every single day. MyBookie Sportsbook Regular Season Football Betting Preview | Air Force Vs James Madison Armed Forces Bowl Game 2023

Between bowl season and the NFL playing 3 days a week, there is a lot of ground to cover and a lot of games to wager on. We are turning our attention to the bowl games for this one, with a pretty busy schedule coming on Saturday throughout the course of the day. These games tend to be hot or miss, as you never really know which teams are in it to win it and which are basically done with the season and ready for the break. My feeling is that James Madison might well have something to prove here, which we will discuss in a moment. The Dukes are favored by 2 ½, with the point total set at 41.

When: Saturday, December 23 at 3:30 PM EST
Where: Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth


James Madison Dukes

It was an outstanding first season for the Dukes in the Sun Belt Conference, but one that is also a little bittersweet. They won their division, but restrictions that came from the move meant that they could not take part in the Conference Championship Game, as they will not be eligible for that until next season. They will almost certainly want to end their season on a high note, so look for them to come out hot on Saturday. This is a team that has proven their ability to handle the pressure of being a favorite, as they have now won 13 of their last 14 when playing with that label. They have also been a very solid bet against the spread, covering the spread in 8 of their last 10 games overall. As far as the point total goes, the OVER has hit in 4 of their last 5 games.



Air Force Falcons

When trying to handicap bowl games featuring teams that very rarely meet, you have to take the current form into account. Teams that ended the season on a low note are often less than willing to play in a game that is essentially meaningless in the grand scheme of things. You need to take that into account with the Air Force Falcons, as they ended the regular season on a 4-game losing skid, failing also to cover the spread in any of those losing efforts. That reeks of a team that has given up on the season, and it has to make bettors a little nervous about playing them this weekend. If there is a positive to be found here, it is that the Falcons have gone 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games played in the month of December. The UNDER has hit in 4 of their last 6 games overall.


Armed Forces Bowl Score Prediction Air Force Vs James Madison

Given the current form of both teams, I am a little surprised to see the Dukes in as such a mild favorite. I like them to win this one going away, handily covering the spread in the process. I also like the OVER in this one.
