Marshall

The last two meetings have gone under the total.

Prediction:

These two teams, especially MTSU, are going to play at a methodical pace tonight and I can't see it turning into a shootout. Marshal has shown to have a pretty solid defense and with this game expected to remain relatively close, I think scoring chances will be fairly tough to come by. I'm putting my money on the under here.
