The Pirates look to improve on their 5 – 2 record when they play host to Old Dominion on Tuesday night at Williams Arena. The tip is at 7 p.m ET and how about a welcome to me for this first NCAA Hoops post I am putting up at CP?
That’s right, you have followed my college football plays all season long and now you will get to have my college hoops betting advice.
Anyway, the Pirates offense has gotten off to a nice start through 7 games and you get that impression from watching them and not so much by the rankings. Yes, ECU ranks 116th in scoring offense, but that also means this team puts up 76 points a night.
The Pirates are light favorites at only -5.5 but I will be suggesting another play for the first half in this game.
Old Dominion hoops are almost an oxymoron because the two just don’t go well together. This Monarch team is going to struggle all season and you are about to cash your first ticket from me fading them early.
ODU barely got past Longwood last time out and had it not been for a Mekhi Long last-second jumper this team could just as easily be 2 – 5 coming into this Tuesday tilt on the road.
The Monarchs have already tasted defeat at the hands of the Purple Pirates just a few days ago. ECU took a 73 – 60 win over ODU at the Myrtle Beach Invitational back on November 19.
Charles Smith IV will likely be out of the lineup for a second straight game taking out one of the team’s top-5 scoring guards. Smith was just getting his legs under him after a slow start to the season. He had 2 points and 6 points in the first two games at Myrtle Beach and then broke out for 7, 12, and 12 in his next 3 outings.
Don’t look at those rankings, baby! Phew, those 61.2 PPG have this team ranked all the way back at 327th in the country and when you have 353 teams you get my drift.
The Pirates are going to cruise early in this game and I expect them to be up and stay up throughout the first half. Since they already know how to slow down this team, we will see more of the same tonight so here’s is the plan.
ECU is only laying a field goal in the first half and that means we will enjoy getting paid after the first 20 minutes.
Tristen Newton is the leader of this squad and he averages 19.9 PPG along with 38.9% from distance. I could go on and on about Newton because he produces big numbers that he showed us right out of the gate. Newton put up 30 in the season-opener against Western Carolina and he almost hit that mark again when he splashed in 28 points against Davidson on November 21.
Depth has been a reason why this team plays so well together as you see Coach Dooley utilizing plenty of his bench thus far. Dooley needs a winning season so badly after 3 years of losing campaigns since returning to ECU. Coach Dooley was here from 1995 – 99 and returned after an extremely prominent 5 years with Florida Gulf Coast.
