4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER 53 Points
Temple has covered the spread in their last three outings and should be motivated to take down a lesser opponent after losing to Boston College on the road.
They’ve also covered the spread the last five times they have faced East Carolina.
Temple has been playing competitively, but so has East Carolina so the double-digit makes it hard to back Temple, but I don’t want to back East Carolina due to the fact that they’ve gone 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games on the road.
I do like this total to remain under the threshold though as both of these squads have decent defenses.
