Against the Spread Pick
These two squads might be neck-in-neck in the standings, but their seasons have gone drastically different. Cincinnati had a solid 7-5 record to start the year before going 3-2 in conference play. While the Bearcats are now 4-5 since December 7th, they’ve dropped one of those games to ranked Memphis. Most notably, they also earned as convincing 12-point win against ranked Tennessee.
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, East Carolina has a solid 2-2 conference record, including a win over SMU. The squad has also lost a close game to ranked Wichita State. So what’s the problem? Well, the squad went on a horrendous 2-7 stretch to start the season. While the Pirates have looked better of late, it’s hard to buy into anything the squad is doing right now.
