Marshall minus 21 hosting Old Dominion

This is a get-right game for Marshall. I expect the Thundering Herd to even their record to 3-3 with an easy win against Old Dominion.

Marshall’s offense has lived up to expectations. The Thundering Herd are the 18th-highest scoring team in the nation averaging 37.8 points. They rank in the top six in total yards and passing yards.

It’s on defense where the Thundering Herd have disappointed. Marshall gave up just 13 points per game last season while ranking in the top-five in fewest yards allowed. This season, however, the Thundering Herd are giving up nearly 25 points per game and rank 88th in yards allowed.

Marshall is in need of a patsy after three consecutive defeats, including a one-point loss to Appalachian State.

Enter Old Dominion. The Monarchs went 1-11 two seasons ago. They didn’t play last year because of the pandemic and are 1-4 this season. The Monarchs lost to Liberty and Wake Forest by an average of 30 points. They rank 95th in yards gained and are 84th in scoring. Their passing attack is dreadful.

The Monarchs are 104th in scoring defense permitting 31.4 points. They have yet to come up with a single takeaway.

Old Dominion is 7-18-1 ATS in its last 26 Conference USA games.

Marshall coach Charles Ruff showed an inclination to run up a score when the Thundering Herd never took their foot off the gas in a 49-7 opening week victory against Navy scoring their final TD with two minutes left on a 30-yard pass.
