The Line: Old Dominion Monarchs -8 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Two of the more inconsistent teams in the C-USA will battle it out when the Marshall Thundering Herd take on the Old Dominion Monarchs.
It’s the last road game of the year for the Thundering Herd, and they should be thrilled. They’re 2-11 SU away from home this season. They average 69.8 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allow 77 points on 46.9 percent shooting on the road. They’ve lost six of their last seven games overall and didn’t win a single road game until mid-January. They are 9-13 ATS overall and 5-7 ATS on the road.

The Monarchs have not won back-to-back games since January 16-18th. They’ve been a rollercoaster over the last two weeks, splitting their last six games. During that stretch they’re averaging 55.8 points on 36.7 percent shooting and allowing 64.6 points on 41.1 percent shooting. They’re 8-6 SU on their home court, but the numbers don’t improve much. At home they average 65.9 points and allow 53.9 points. They shoot only 59.6 percent from the free throw line at home! They are 12-13 ATS overall and 4-7 ATS on their home floor.
This is really a toss-up game and I’d advise you to stay away from it. If you really need to pick this game, I’d take a look at the totals when they’re released. Look at the under.
However, for the sake of the article, I’ll back the Monarchs to get the job done at home. Marshall has been beyond brutal on the road and that isn’t likely going to change this late in the season.
The line isn’t too bad so get it while you still can. Well, that is if you like torture. This is going to be an ugly basketball game.
