Point Spread: 7.00 | -115.00 WKU (Home)
Marshall enters off a 17-7 victory over Appalachian State, while the Hilltoppers enter off a 20-17 road win over MTSU. Marshall is 2-0 and WKU is now 1-2. These teams met last year and Marshall won 26-23, making this a revenge game for the Hilltoppers. Marshall's early defensive numbers are skewed due to strength of schedule. Both teams return several starters on both sides of the ball from last year's teams. WKU though is 5-1-1 ATS in its last seven vs. teams with winning records and 10-4 ATS in its last 14 as a home dog, while Marshall is a poor 6-16 ATS in its last 22 when playing the role of favorite. I think WKU has everything in place to take this game outright, but let's grab the points!
T.M. Prediction: 23-21 Marshall.
