No matter the record of either team, you’ll see some of America’s best, brightest, and bravest giving it their all at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in the ultimate rivalry matchup. The weather is shaping up to be a non-factor, a stark contrast to last year’s blizzard, with partly cloudy skies, light winds, and temperatures in the 30s. The Black Knights are 6.5-point favorites and the total is at 40 in the latest Army vs. Navy odds.

The model has factored in that one big advantage that Army will have on Saturday is the play of quarterback Kelvin Hopkins, Jr.

The Black Knights don’t throw the ball often because they don’t have to, but Hopkins has been very reliable when called upon. The junior has averaged 11 yards per pass attempt this season and, as captain of a triple-option offense, he’s extremely dangerous in the run game as well.

In fact, Hopkins has rushed for 788 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, second on the team in both categories behind Darnell Woolfolk. And in his biggest game of the season against bowl-bound Eastern Michigan, he ran for 105 yards and completed 7-of-8 pass attempts for 126 yards and two touchdowns.

But just because Army can move the ball doesn’t mean it can cover almost a touchdown spread.

Even though Army will retain the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy in a tie, Navy still has the chance to deny the Black Knights back-to-back victories in the series for the first time ever. As if this game needed any extra incentive, that should help make sure Navy is sharp.

Despite their lack of victories this season, the Midshipmen are still averaging 289 yards rushing per game and have found an explosive playmaker in Zach Abey. He’s accounted for six total touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving and one passing) in the last three weeks. Army will have to keep close tabs on him in order to cover the spread.

So, which side of the Army vs. Navy spread hits in over 50 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to be all over, all from the incredible computer model that’s up more than $4,200 over the past three years, and find out.

Just days after drawing Arsenal in Premier League action, Manchester United takes the field and welcomes Fulham to Old Trafford. The Red Devils haven’t won any of their last four league games and will aim for all the points here with a big game against Liverpool looming.

Premier League: Manchester United vs. Fulham

  • Odds: Man. United -333 / Fulham +640 / Draw + 446

Manchester United: United’s Anthony Martial has a light hamstring injury but is expected to recover in time for this game. Defenders Luke Shaw and Phil Jones are in a race to be fit, while fellow defender Victor Lindelof is out due to injury.

Fulham: The club is healthy but striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is just one yellow card away from receiving a one-match suspension, so he’ll need to be careful. He’ll pick up the yellow at some point this season, but Fulham can’t be cute with it as it is in the thick of the relegation battle.

Manchester United vs. Fulham prediction

If United doesn’t win this one, you have to wonder if Jose Mourinho is still at the helm come Monday. But the Red Devils rally behind their coach and get the win they need.

Unai Emery says that after the midweek draw against Manchester United, the Gunners have to pick up maximum points at the Emirates 

Arsenal host Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium as they aim to move back into the top four.

Unai Emery’s side stretched their undefeated run in all competitions to 20 matches on Wednesday as they picked up a point in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United. However, they twice led at Old Trafford only to rapidly cede their advantage on both occasions.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, are coming off the back of a week that has seen them go down 2-1 to Brighton and Bournemouth.

One point above the drop zone, David Wagner and his side would see anything from their trip to London as a bonus.

In the United Kingdom (UK), the game will not be broadcast as it takes place during the blackout period.

Unai Emery does not have too many pressing headaches prior to Saturday’s clash, though the duo of Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck remain absent. Rob Holding, meanwhile, has been ruled out for the season.

It seems unlikely that Laurent Koscielny will be considered for game time after returning recently to training after six months out, while Mesut Ozil remains a major doubt. Nacho Monreal is the other player who needs checked.

Alexandre Lacazette is liable to start after a strong cameo at Old Trafford, while Granit Xhaka will feature after a ban.

Possible Arsenal starting XI: Leno; Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Mustafi; Bellerin, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac; Mkhitaryan, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Huddersfield will be without Steve Mounie, who has two games of a three-match ban still to serve, and Philip Billing, who misses out after picking up five yellow cards.

On the injury front, Chris Lowe is back in training but Ramadan Sobhi is a fresh doubt. 

Possible Huddersfield starting XI: Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Zanka, Schindler, Kongolo, Durm; Williams, Mooy, Bacuna; Van La Parra; Depoitre

Arsenal are 2/7 favourites to win this match at bet365. A draw is priced at 5/1, while a Huddersfield victory can be backed at 11/1.

But Bournemouth will be full of confidence after beating Huddersfield 2-1 on Tuesday, with in-form striker Callum Wilson taking his goal tally to eight for the season.

The Cherries are currently seventh in the standings, above struggling Manchester United and level on points with Everton, and long-serving boss Eddie Howe has been rewarded for keeping faith in his current crop of players, adding only a few new names to the squad over the summer.

Bournemouth will be without England midfielder Lewis Cook for the rest of the season because of a serious knee injury as they prepare for the Premier League match against Liverpool.

Midfielder Dan Gosling will also miss the game at the Vitality Stadium with his own knee problem.Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne and Dominic Solanke are set to miss Liverpool’s trip to Bournemouth on Saturday while Sadio Mane is unlikely to feature, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

However, the German should be able to welcome Georginio Wijnaldum and Andy Robertson back into his squad as the Reds bid to go top of the Premier League with a win on the south coast.

Klopp this week lost centre-half Joe Gomez to an ankle injury picked up at Burnley but Lovren has been ruled out of jreplacing him this weekend, with Klopp saying: “He will not be available.

“He got a knock last week and got a concussion and is still not able to play, like Clyney [who] is out already two weeks or so.

“Nothing serious but he’s not in training so not available as well. Joe [Gomez] obviously, Oxlade-Chamberlajin, Rhian Brewster and Dom Solanke but Dom is close, I really hope that he will be in team training from Sunday on but we have to see.”

Mane and Wijnaldum joined Lovren in missing out on the midweek win Turf Moor, but the latter should be available to return, while his teammate is closing in on full fitness after sustaining a cut on his foot.
