The Marshall Thundering Herd and the Duquesne Dukes meet in college basketball action from the UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse on Thursday night.

The Marshall Thundering Herd will try to add to their current seven-game win streak after an 83-69 win over Ohio last time out. Taevion Kinsey leads the Herd in scoring and assists with 20.5 PPG and 5.4 APG along with 5.6 RPG while Andrew Taylor has 19.4 PPG with 5.4 RPG and 4.8 APG this season. Kamdyn Curfman has 11.5 PPG with 3.4 APG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Marshall this season Micah Handlogten also has a team-high 9.9 RPG to lead Marshall on the glass up to this point in the season. As a team, Marshall is averaging 83.8 PPG on 47.1% shooting from the field, 33.8% from three and 63.3% from the foul line this season.

The Duquesne Dukes will hope to build on their six-game win streak after a 78-77 win over Ball State last time out. Dae Dae Grant leads Duquesne in scoring with 19 PPG along with 4 RPG as the only double-digit scorer for Duquesne up to this point in the season. Austin Rotroff also has a team-high 7.6 RPG and Tevin Brewer leads Duquesne in assists with 3 APG as well this season. As a team, Duquesne is averaging 79 PPG on 47.5% shooting from the field, 39.9% from three and 66.4% from the foul line this season.

Marshall is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games following 3 or more consecutive home games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 9-2 in their last 11 games overall. Duquesne is 6-17 ATS in their last 23 home games and 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games overall while the over is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall.

I get the reasoning for backing Marshall in a near pick ‘em as they’ve been on quite a run the Herd have, but I’m truthfully very high on this Duquesne team as I think they have a decent shot at winning the A-10 this year if things go their way. Marshall in the past has had a history of issues when going out on the road, especially after a nice homestand, so give me Duquesne in this one.
