Myrtle Beach Bowl Marshall vs UConn Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Myrtle Beach Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official Marshall vs UConn betting preview.
It's been a long time since UConn was in a bowl game. Ironically, that last appearance actually came against Marshall at the 2015 St. Petersburg Bowl, ending in a 16-10 victory for the Thundering Herd. Marshall has won a pair of bowl games since then, however, the most recent one came back in 2018.
Fortunately for Marshall, I expect its success to change this year. Though UConn has won three of its last four games, two of those victories came against Boston College and UMass, who have a combined 4-20 record. Sure, the Huskies did defeat a top FBS independent school too (Liberty), but that victory seems more like an anomaly.
UConn will have a tougher time against a Marshall defense that gives up the 10th-fewest points (18.4 PPG). Considering how the Huskies have an astonishing minus-16.8 scoring differential away from home in 2022, I don't see the Thundering Herd having any real issue putting the opposition away from the dust settles.
Back Marshall's defense leading the team to victory.
