Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Marshall Thundering Herd
Louisiana Tech +2.5 at Marshall: This matchup just might be the C-USA title game preview with the winner earning home field.
Very quietly, Skip Holtz and his boys have rattled off eight consecutive wins while covering six of their last seven outings. The Bulldogs are one of the healthiest teams in college football and enter this game with the nation’s 13th ranked scoring offense (38.1 PPG). They are equally efficient on the ground and in the air.
Meat-and-potatoes running back Justin Henderson (712 yards rushing, 14 TDs) will open up the Herd “D” and allow quarterback J’mar Smith (2,483 yards passing, 14 TDs, 4 INTs) to work his magic on the leaky Marshall pass defense, which ranks 82nd in the nation.
The Thundering Herd have crushed bettors, going 1-4 ATS in their last five following a bye week, 2-12 ATS the last 14 at home, and 2-5 ATS the last seven in the conference. LOUISIANA TECH
