The Marshall Thundering Herd will be out to build on their 91-65 win over Tennessee Tech last time out. Taveion Kinsey led the Herd with 28 points on 13 of 19 shooting with a team-high 8 assists and 3 steals while Andrew Taylor added 17 points with 6 rebounds and 5 assists with a pair of steals and Kamdyn Curfman had 10 points with 4 assists and a pair of steals to cap off the scoring for the Thundering Herd in the win.

The Miami-Ohio Redhawks will try to bounce back after a 77-70 loss to Georgia in their last game. Mekhi Lairy had 34 points on 10 of 18 shooting with 4 threes and a 10 of 10 mark from the foul line along with a team-high 5 rebounds while Billy Smith added 12 points with 4 threes and 5 rebounds of his own.

Marshall is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games and 10-26-3 ATS in their last 39 games overall while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games following an ATS win. Miami-Ohio is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 6-20 ATS in their last 26 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 Thursday games.
I get the case to be made for either side in this game, but I’m looking at the under here. I think this will be a game where the first to 75 wins this game if we even get that high. Miami-Ohio games just don’t light up the scoreboard from my past experience and I just think this total is a bit out of hand. Give me the under here.
