James Madison comes into their Armed Forces Bowl game versus Air Force as a -2.5 favorite after opening at -3.  We get a number of 5.96, suggesting as much as a 3-point underlay, which bodes quite well for JMU with underlays in the 3/2.5 resulting in 86% covers for the favorite.

The Armed Forces Bowl offers a payout of $1.35 million.  It features teams from various collegiate football conferences. The independent United States Military Academy (Army) is also eligible to participate.

James Madison enters this bowl game with just one loss on the season.  They went 8-4 Against The Spread.  Air Force owned an 8-4 record Straight Up and 5-7 Against The Spread.

Air Force starting quarterback Zac Larrier is expected to be under center after missing the past two games with an undisclosed injury. Running back John Lee Eldridge III totaled 521 rushing yards and six scores for Air Force, is in the transfer portal and won't be appearing in this bowl game.

The Falcons come into this one ranked second among FBS teams in total rushing yards (3,309) but are also hoping to avoid a 5th straight loss.

James Madison defense leads the nation allowing only 61.5 yards rushing per game.

This will serve as James Madison's bowl debut.

We do have a dire warning from the fine folks at Winners and Whiners before you place the Dukes bet:

"The Dukes lost six defenders who accounted for 325 tackles and 15.5 sacks, two running backs who combined for 1,162 rushing yards, a receiver who caught 74 passes for 1,076 yards and eight TDs, and their starting QB (3,400 passing yards and 40 total TDs). Replacing that amount of production with no new players is impossible."
