East Carolina Pirates
East Carolina’s season has been a tale of two halves thus far. They started the season 2-7 and couldn’t gain any form of consistency or momentum. Since then, they are 6-2 and have enjoyed some really tight knit games.
However, they lost their most recent game against the 12-6 Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. They lost by 16 where they were only a 2.5 point underdog.
They hope to get back into the win column here and avoid losing consecutive games for the first time since early December.
Ever hear of a one man wrecking crew? That’s what the East Carolina Pirates are, essentially. Jayden Gardner has been sensational this season as he leads the team in points per game with 21.2 and rebounds per game with 9.1.
He is the only player on the team that averages a double digit figure. He shoots over 56% from the field and will need a masterful performance if they want to contend with the Bearcats.
East Carolina averages less than 70 points per game and allow more points than they score.
That trend should continue here as Cincinnati has a more efficient defense than ECU. Look for the Pirates do massively undersized on the rebounding glass, which will play a big factor in such a spread.
Cincinnati has been inconsistent as of late. They have only won consecutive games once since November and are 4-5 in their last nine games. They most recently lost to ranked Memphis by 11 and failed to cover the +4.5 spread.
This is the game Cincinnati needs as they look to gain some momentum on the season.
Cincinnati is led by Jarron Cumberland and Tre Scott. Cumberland leads the team in points per game with 13.7 and assists per game with 3.8. Scott leads the team in rebounds per game with 9.0 and steals per game with 1.6.
Both of them will need to continue their high production if they want to cover such a massive spread.
Cincinnati’s offense isn’t the best, but their defense allows less than 66 points per game. Like I said earlier, they should out-rebound East Carolina both offensively and defensively.
The rebound discrepancy should give a good idea on what to expect from this game score wise.

Free East Carolina Pirates vs. Cincinnati Bearcats NCAAB Prediction: Cincinnati wins and wins comfortably, but 16 is thick for a team that is 6-11 ATS this season. Look total here.
This is the perfect game for Cincinnati to get back into the win column as they should lock in against a less talented opponent. 140 is a lot for a Cincinnati team that doesn’t allow over 66 points per game. UNDER CITY.
