Marshall at Memphis Preview

October 02, 2007

College Football - (0-4) Marshall Thundering Herd at (1-3) Memphis Tigers 8:00 PM EST

Memphis is currently a 3-point favorite with a total of 59.5 at most sportsbooks for tonight's contest.

Both of these teams will be looking to snap a current losing streak tonight as Marshall has lost all four games this season and Memphis has lost its last two.

In their last eight games as favorites of three points or less, Memphis has only covered once. Memphis should be a little sluggish coming into tonight's game having played their third game in the last eleven days. 

This appeared to be the case last Thursday as they were shut out 29-0 in the second half versus Arkansas State. 

Marshall's passing game which averages 295.3 yards per game should match-up nicely versus Memphis' defense which gives up on average 243 yards through the air.

Marshall has had more than a week off since a 40-14 loss to Cincinnati, so they should be a little more rested than the Tigers coming in.

The Tigers will at least have the edge in playing before the home crowd. Memphis is 9-2 ATS in C-USA openers, while Marshall is currently at the 10-26-1 ATS mark on the conference road.

Key Stats
Both of these teams have been giving up more points than they have been scoring in the first four games this season. Marshall is averaging 18.8 points per game while giving up 41.8. Memphis is averaging 26.8 while giving up 32.0 on the defensive side of the ball.
Key Trends
Marshall is 0-4 SU. 1-2 ATS. 1-9 SU last 10 games on the road. 1-10-1 ATS last 12 games on the road. 0-5 SU last 5 games.

Memphis is 1-3 SU. 1-1-1 ATS. 2-12 SU last 14 games. 1-7 SU last 8 games at home.
