Armed Forces Bowl Betting Preview: Houston Will Miss Its Stars Against Army

Houston Cougars vs. Army Black Knights (-3)

Sat., December 22, 3:30 p.m. ET

Three things to know before betting on Houston-Army:

1. Houston's offense ended the regular season ranked 11th in the country in yards per play (6.77) and points per game (46.4). But facing Army in the Armed Forces Bowl, Houston will be without its heart and soul, quarterback D'Eriq King, who suffered an injury in Houston's second-to-last regular season game that brought his 2018 campaign to an end. King's 290 points were the most in the nation. It's a tremendous drop-off between King and his backup, freshman Clayton Tune.
