UAB vs Marshall 12/18/20 Betting Prediction
UAB’s season started strongly with 4 wins out of 5 games but then, they pumped the breaks a little, resulting in 5-3 record at the moment. The team is relying on the ground game to give them points and they rarely ask QB Bryson Lucero to throw the football. He is completing 54.1% of his throws for 969 yards, 7 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. RB Spencer Brown, however, is doing a great job of rushing the football with 740 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Marshall is 7-1 and their loss came last week against Rice where they were shut down, 20-0. Rice has one of the best defenses in the country and we all noticed that Marshall is vulnerable when playing against an elite defense. Apart from this game, the Thundering Herd are averaging 37.4 points per game, using a balanced offense. The defense is allowing just 11.4 points per game and that is their difference-maker.
Marshall seems like the better team to me. They are able to punish you in several ways, both through the air and on the ground. The defense should also be able to contain UAB’s ground attack.
