The FIU Golden Panthers go on the road to face the Marshall Thundering Herd in CUSA college basketball action.

The Florida International Golden Panthers have rattled off four straight wins after downing Louisiana Tech as a 1.5 point home dog on Sunday.

Florida International saw 21 points and five pulls from Devon Andrews with Brian Beard adding 13 points, four boards and seven helpers.

The Golden Panthers received 12 points and five pulls from Isaiah Banks while Trejon Jacob and Osasumwen  Osaghae combined for 21 points with Osaghae hauling in eleven rebounds.

The Marshall Thundering Herd are eyeing a 4thconsecutive win after squeezing by the North Texas Mean Green 85-82 as a seven point road dog.

CJ Burks led Marshall with 21 points and four assists followed by Jon Elmore who tossed in another 20 points and grabbed six boards.

Tavion Kinsey was next in line with 19 points and five yanks while Jarrod West and Mikel Beyers combined for 16 points and a combined eleven rebounds.

FIU Golden Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and FIU Golden Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Conference USA.

Marshall Thundering Herd are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 vs. Conference USA and Marshall Thundering Herd are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.

Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Marshall and over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

It seems like Marshall wins these types of games but I’ll back the unheralded Golden Panthers…

Pick:
FIU +5.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
