Marshall Thundering Herd
Marshall’s first round victory over Wichita State was one of the biggest upsets of the first two days of the tournament. The Thundering Herd was a double-digit underdog after overcoming overwhelming odds against it to just get to the Big Dance.
But Marshall has a team identity. It can score and Jon Elmore did just that, scoring a game-high 27 points in leading his team to a six-point win.
What was most surprising was how Marshall held down Wichita State’s most dangerous scorer, Landry Shamet. Shamet scored just 11 points and chose to be more of a passer, recording eight assists.
But whatever the spread was, Marshall didn’t look like an underdog. Elmore was as good as any player on the floor and the Thundering Herd went at the Shockers the way a team expects to win goes at its opponent.
Facing another double-digit number in this game, I don’t expect anything different out of Marshall.
West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia got off to a good start in its first round game against Murray State and cruised from there to avoid the upset on Friday and move on as the 5-seed.
It really helps when your best player is the guy who starts everything. Jevon Carter has the ball in his hands all the time for the Mountaineers and he makes things happen.
Carter scored 21 and made plays scoring, finding open teammates and wreaking havoc on the defensive end in a dominant performance.
Four Mountaineers scored in double-figures and WVU looked like a team to be reckoned with.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 14-5 in MRSH last 19 non-conference games.
- WVU are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 Sun. games.
- Over is 15-3 in WVU last 18 overall.
- Over is 14-3 in WVU last 17 games as a favorite.
Free Marshall vs. West Virginia NCAAB Prediction: I like Carter and WVU.
Jevon Carter will take this team as far as he can. And at the least, it’s past Marshall.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Marshall +11.5
But this number does seem a tad high, especially in an in-state rivalry matchup.
