Marshall vs Georgia State Betting Prediction

These two teams come into the Sun Belt Tournament with only one win separating them in the standings, but Marshall has really struggled to end the season. The Thundering Herd have lost seven games in a row and they are only shooting 40.7% from the field this year. Georgia State is shooting 43.5% from the field and they are scoring over 76 points per game. These two teams played in the last game of the regular season just the other day, with Georgia State winning, but Marshall did win 77-68 earlier in the year. I know Marshall has found some success against Georgia State this season, but I can’t back them with their current form. Take the Panthers here.
