Oddsmakers are expecting some points scored in Friday night’s East Carolina at Tulsa matchup with a betting total of 61. The Golden Hurricanes look like a huge favorite at -18 points, but they’re also playing their 1st home game of the year.
East Carolina is a team to watch in Friday night’s matchup. Their 1-3 record has also come as being underdogs in 3 of their four games this season. The Tulsa offense did look dominant last week though.
East Carolina Pirates
It was expected with just a +3.5 line, but East Carolina played Navy tight in their last game in a 23-27 loss. 50 points was an especially high scoring game considering Navy ran for 288 and the Pirates churned out 268 rushing.
East Carolina will try to run the ball again on Friday night, as it was their m.o. in the week six 44-24 victory at South Florida as +5.5 underdogs. East Carolina ran 47 times for 210 yards in that game.
The Pirates run game can be contained, as East Carolina ran for just 50 yards on 26 attempts in the 49-29 loss at Georgia State in week 2 as -2 point favorites.
Tulsa Golden Hurricanes
Tulsa is starting to make a name for themselves after starting the first two games of the season as massive underdogs. The Golden Hurricanes dropped a 16-7 opener at Oklahoma State, but as +24 underdogs.
Phil Montgomery’s squad also faced underdog status in their second game of the season, but overcame +20.5 odds to topple UCF on the road 36-24.
Tulsa also took care of business last week, covering a tough -12.5 spread in a 42-13 win over South Florida. Deneric Prince had a breakout game for the Golden Hurricanes, scampering for 109 yards and 2 TD on just 15 carries.
The Tulsa defense will likely be the X-factor in Thursday night’s game. Joseph Gillespie’s unit has held two of three opponents to 16 points or less. Tulsa’s 34-26 win over UCF was even impressive against Central Florida’s #1 ranked offense in total yards.
