It comes down to teamwork. In order to have Predation up the Marauder has to have 30 stacks of Fury already in order to pop it. He has to have already been fighting, gained it, then gotten into position and popped it for this scenario to work.

If not, all he's got is Force Charge (30m range to enemy only) or Obliterate (10m range to enemy only) if he's Rage specc'd far enough. Intercede is a Juggernaut only skill.

It comes down to right place, right time, right circumstances. Can't just pop and go on a whim, it has to be set up. Just like a Consular/Sorc near the goal line to pull the ball carrier over. It's all about teamwork and preparation for a score.

I just personally think this amount of mobility isn't balanced, just had a Hutball match where there was a 2 man premade on the enemy team a sith maruder building tanky, and a sith sorceror: The sorceror sprinter in took hutball waited a few secs with it and proceeded to throw it to the maruder on the bridge, sure that's fairly balanced, its teamwork, but then the maruder proceded to sprint trough one fire force charge to the next, and sprint trough the second as well i would estimate it took him around 10-15 secs to score.

TL;DR Sith maruder's ballcarrying kit/mobility is op..
Marauders are one of the best ball carriers, Juggs are quite possibly THE best. But it's one of the few things that they are good at. Who is OP in Failum/Zergfest? Anyone who is not melee.

Marauders don't have intercede.
Predation costs 30 Fury.

Force speed doesn't give you root immunity.

I play a Sentinel, and I'd have to say that we are definitely not OP when it comes to carrying the ball.

Yes, if conditions are JUST right (CD's, position of opposing forces, etc), we can score in a big hurry, but there are so many things that can easily throw us off track.

We aren't bad at it, but we certainly aren't the most effective ball carriers in the game...

Charge capitalizes on YOUR mistake and they can only go where YOU allow them to go.

Force Speed only gives those immunities in tank spec.

Also, marauders can pop a DR cooldown for 99% reduction to walk over fire and not break their momentum.
