The Georgia Southern Eagles and the Marshall Thundering Herd meet in college basketball action from the Cam Henderson Center on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Marshall is listed as a 12.5-point favorite with a ML price of -900. The total for this game is set at 147.5 points.


Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

Georgia Southern won the lone meeting between these two teams, 81-76, back on January 5th, 2023.


Georgia Southern is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win. Marshall is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.


I’m going to back Marshall here. Scoring has not been Georgia Southern’s forte on the road this season after logging just 58 points against Old Dominion and 60 against Georgia State. I don’t expect that to change against a Marshall team that’s holding opponents to 67.9 PPG at home this season and outscoring them by 16.4 PPG as well. The Herd are just the better team here and I think they exact some revenge after their loss to Georgia Southern on the road last time these two met. Give me the Herd.
