Against The Spread Pick
The Temple Owls are just looking to stay alive in the AAC, as they make a road visit to Minges Coliseum for a clash with the ECU Pirates. The Owls were able to bounce back from their 20-point loss against Villanova, with a safe four-point win against UConn. East Carolina meanwhile has lost three-straight games and eight of their last 10 overall. The Pirates have lost their last two games by four points or less. Temple has won seven of the last 10 head-to-head meetings. They were also able to cover a 10.5-point spread in the first meeting this season, as the Owls won at home by 12 points. Taking Temple to cover 2.5 points is the right move.
Over Under Pick
The Owls were able to put up 93 points in their victory over UConn, while the Huskies chipped in 89 points to reach a really high 182-point total. That is likely not the outcome of this match-up with both teams averaging less than 70 points per game. The first meeting this season came in right on the over-under total of 140 points, as Temple won 76-64. The total for this clash is 140.5 which might be a little too high. So take the under.
