Marquette isn't consistent or I don't think good enough to be blowing teams out. Stetson has played some solid teams on the road already this season, which includes stealing a win against FIU and taking The Citadel down to the wire. Also, the Hatters aren't on national TV much, so you know they're going to bring it.
I'll side with the points here.
