Mar­shall over UTSA by 6

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Miami Florida Over -

De­spite a 7-3 SU sea­son, Mar­shall finds it­self elim­i­nated from the top spot in the CUSA East fol­low­ing back-to-back losses to FAU and FIU. Still, a win here and an­other next week against South­ern Miss and the Herd will erase mem­o­ries of last year’s 3-9 aber­ra­tion (had gone 33-8 SU in pre­vi­ous three sea­sons). As we ex­pected, the Road­run­ners were ex­posed last Satur­day against UAB and must win tonight or next week ver­sus Louisiana Tech to earn a bowl in­vite. For some un­known rea­son, the odd­s­mak­ers fell in love with San An­to­nio this year and in­stalled the ‘Run­ners as fa­vorites in all seven FBS games fol­low­ing their sea­son opener against Bay­lor! Af­ter an aw­ful 2-5 ATS re­sult as chalk, it’s no big sur­prise to see UTSA hov­er­ing at ‘Pick’ ver­sus Mar­shall here. And if the Road­run­ner go off as fa­vorites, they’ll have their hands full against a mad-as-hell Herd that’s cashed in all four ap­pear­ances as dogs this sea­son. The bot­tom line is we pre­fer a Mar­shall squad that has out­gained seven of their last eight op­po­nents. Again.
