We have reached week six of the college football season, and this game will feature a couple of teams that are desperate for a win.
The Temple Owls make the trip to Greenville North Carolina to take on the East Carolina Pirates. Last year when the two teams played the Owls won by a final score of 37-10.
The Temple Owls have had a very tough season so far and come into this game with a 2-3 record, winning the games they were favored in, and losing the games they were underdogs in. So far this season they have only covered the spread in one game.
A lot of the Owls issues so far this year have been because of their struggles on the offensive side of the ball, especially running the ball.
They come into this game having only run for 84.2 yards per game. They really need to find a running back they can lean on and be the workhorse back.
Another issue they have had has been the turnovers. Sophomore starting quarterback Logan Marchi has played decent this year, but has had way too many turnovers this year.
So far he has already thrown six interceptions this season. After not throwing any interceptions in the first three games he has thrown three each in the last two games.
TO win this game the offense needs to be good. They need to establish the ground game and they can’t turn the ball over.
If they do continue to turn the ball over, they will be upset in this game.
East Carolina Pirates
On the other side of this match up is the East Carolina Pirates who are going through a rebuilding season. They have been underdogs in every game, and their only win came against Uconn a game they were five point underdogs in.
The biggest issue for the Pirates has been on the defensive side of the ball. The offense has been good this year, but they can’t win when they are expected to put about 40 points a game.
So far this season the Pirates have given up 50.6 points and 615 yards per game. A team is going to have a hard time winning any games when you are giving up that many points a game.
To win this game it all comes down to the defense side of the ball. They need to find a way to slow down the Owls offense that really hasn’t been that great.
They need to really make sure that the Owls don’t get any sort of run game going in this one.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Temple -3
I think the Owls will get the run game going early and the Pirates defense won’t have any answer for it.
The Owls will win a very high scoring game that they also cover the spread in.
