LINE: Marshall -3.5, o/u: 59.5
ATS PICK: Marshall
Just how much do you not like Marshall’s offense?
Old Dominion might be bombing away lately, but it has only had the one historic aberration game against Virginia Tech. It has lost to everyone else on the slate so far thanks to a miserable defense, and it only stayed close with Charlotte and East Carolina.
Marshall is better than Charlotte and East Carolina.
The Herd lost to a solid Middle Tennessee team last week, and there’s reason to be concerned about the too-tough fights with WKU and Miami University, but Old Dominion’s defense has a way of not holding up, despite a decent pass rush to rely on.
Okay, so the Marshall pass defense is really, really shaky, but the pass rush is fantastic and the team really should be strong enough offensively – finally – to get out of Norfolk by at least four.
NEXT: The repeat of a classic?
