The St. Petersburg Bowl will feature Marshall looking to continue late season profits for bettors as the Thundering Herd has gone 10-3 ATS in their past 13 games in December. Marshall will take on the UConn Huskies in the first of six games on December 26.
Marshall ended the season on a skid, going 1-2 in their final three games with losses to Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky. The Herd is one of those teams that will put up points (32 PPG), but have held opponents to a meagre 18.4 points per game this season. Freshman quarterback Chase Litton stepped into the void left by Rakeem Cato admirably, with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Most people still see UConn as a whipping boy, but the team has a win over Houston and are in a bowl game. The Huskies will need anything their offense can give them in this game as they average a sad 17.0 points per game this season
