East Carolina faces Temple on Saturday, November 21st at Lincoln Financial Field for a Week 12 NCAA football AAC matchup. 

East Carolina is coming off a 55-17 loss to #7 Cincinnati in Week 11 of the season. East Carolina hung around for a bit, but Cincinnati was too powerful for East Carolina to keep up with for most of the game. East Carolina is now a measly 1-6 overall this season and 1-5 in AAC play. East Carolina's only win of the season so far came against South Florida on the road on October 10th. Since then, the Pirates of East Carolina have lost four games straight (all in conference play). East Carolina scores 27.4 points per game and earns 383.7 total yards per contest as well. East Carolina allows 39.7 points per game to its opposition, as the defense has really struggled this season. 

Temple is coming off yet another loss to UCF in Week 11 by the final score of 38-13. Temple is now on a four-game losing streak of its own, allowing at least 38 points in all four of those games. Temple is in the midst of a rebuilding season, and that can be seen on both sides of the ball. Temple only scores 22.7 points per game, which is well below average in the high-scoring and high-flying AAC. Temple's defense has been even worse, allowing 38.7 points per game and conceding 430.7 total yards of offense to opposing teams. Temple is 1-5 on the year and will look for its second home win of the season against a feasible opponent.

Temple opens as 2-point favorites and the total is set at 63. I like East Carolina to win this game outright, as I think East Carolina has the stronger team. This game should be high scoring, so I would also lean to the over here; however, the best play in my eyes would be East Carolina on the money line. There is a lot more value in taking East Carolina to win rather than taking the two measly points here.
