The Charlotte 49ers and Marshall Thundering Herd face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.
The Charlotte 49ers come into this game with a 2-3 record and they have had a week off after being destroyed in their last game against the Duke Blue Devils. The offense could only manage 19 points, but their defense gave up 53 points and that led to the blowout loss. On the season, Charlotte is giving up 31.6 points per game which is 75th in the league. On offense, Charlotte is averaging 28.6 points per game which is 64th in college football. Junior quarterback Chris Reynolds has found success this season throwing for 1,100 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. In this game Charlotte is facing a strong defensive team so their offense is going to need to take care of the ball and find success.
On the other side of this matchup is Marshall who have won all seven of their games this year and almost every one of the games have been impressive domination. Over the last two games, Marshall has scored 93 points while giving up only 24. On the season, Marshall is averaging 37.4 points while their defense is giving up 10.1 points. The 10.1 points given up is second in all of college football. The passing game has been strong for offense, but they are also averaging 205,7 yards per game on the ground. Brenden Knox has rushed for 744 yards, and ten touchdowns.
The over is 10-3 in Marshall's last 13 home games. Marshall is 6-16 against the spread in their last 22 home games.
Marshall’s defense is going to lock down the Charlotte offense and that is going to be the difference in this game. Look for Marshall to score, but it won’t be enough to push this game over the total. Back the under to cash with ease.
