Gardner-Webb @ Marshall

Current Records: Gardner-Webb 1-3; Marshall 2-2

What to Know

The Marshall Thundering Herd will be returning home after a three-game road trip. They will take on the Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Joan C. Edwards Stadium. Marshall is the favorite here -- although they were the favorites in their last matchup, too, so the odds might count for a little less.

The Thundering Herd came up short against the Troy Trojans last week, falling 16-7. Despite the defeat, Marshall got a solid performance out of RB Khalan Laborn, who rushed for one TD and 113 yards on 29 carries.

Meanwhile, Gardner-Webb found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 45-14 punch to the gut against the Mercer Bears last week. Gardner-Webb was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 28-7.

This next game looks promising for Marshall, who are favored by a full 31 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.

The Thundering Herd are now 2-2 while the Runnin' Bulldogs sit at 1-3. Marshall is 0-1 after losses this year, Gardner-Webb 0-2.
