Marshall Thundering Herd
The first thing to know about Marshall is that it plays fast. It averages over 86 points per game and gives up over 81. Those numbers are ninth and 331st in the nation, respectively.
There are three teams of NCAA Tournament quality in the Conference-USA: Middle Tennessee State, Old Dominion and Western Kentucky. Marshall is just after those three, in fourth place with three losses. It has given MTSU its only loss this season. Otherwise, the three conference losses are all to Old Dominion and Western Kentucky (x2). The Thundering Herd also lost by four at Xavier in one of its best performances of the season.
Jon Elmore and CJ Burks both average over 21 points per game, actually closer to 22. Adjin Penava is the third scorer at just 16 per game; he would lead a lot of teams across the country. Fourteen turnovers per game as a team may not look good but it’s a solid number considering the pace Marshall plays with.
UTSA’s conference losses are as follows: North Texas by one, at Southern Miss by ten, FIU by three, FAU by four and at MTSU by 24. There is quite a gap in talent across the C-USA.
The Roadrunners are named aptly and are similar to Marshall in the sense that they play fast and score a lot of points. As a result, they give up quite a few, too. They score the 39th-most points in the country and give up the 282nd-most.
But unlike Marshall, UTSA does not have two 20 points per game scorer. It doesn’t even have one. Jhivvan Jackson scores 18.7 to lead the team and six guys average between 8.1 and 11.9 after him.
CBB Betting Trends:
- MRSH are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
- Over is 26-10 in MRSH last 36 road games.
Free Marshall vs. UTSA NCAAB Prediction: tons of points and a UTSA home win.
Marshall is a dangerous team but UTSA has an advantage at home in a spot between two teams who play the same type of game. I like the Roadrunners in a game that will get up into the 170s and beyond.
