There aren’t a ton of trends on this game, but most of them favor the underdog Marshall Thundering heard. But again, since there isn’t enough backing Marshall at this point, we’ll resort to our Power Rating Line in our College Football Matchup section, which is based on recent game results and is a power line that is calculated using both teams’ ratings and home field advantage. Our power rating suggests that Houston should be a 9-point favorite and with the spread currently at 7.5, we’ll gladly take Houston to cover. See the Power Ranking system here.
