Against The Spread Pick
Marshall has won 4 of their last five games, and have been able to reach a .500 record at 14-14. UAB has a better record, however, they have not been the more impressive team. Despite their 16-12 record, they are three spots behind Marshall in the Conference USA standings. UAB’s home 9-2 record isn’t too impressive, and they have a losing record in conference play (7-8). Meanwhile, Marshall has a winning record in conference play, and they are a top 80 offensive team in the country. Take Marshall tonight.
Over Under Pick
Marshall and UAB have been averaging 73 and 71 points per game over their last five games respectively, and both teams don’t rank great in defensive efficiency either. Meanwhile, Marshall is the 74th ranked offense in terms of points per game in the nation. The last match between these two teams saw a very low scoring game. Don’t let that scare you however, as the trends over the last five show spikes in offense for both teams. Take the OVER tonight
