East Carolina is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 October games. The under is 6-2 in East Carolina’s last 8 conference games.

East Carolina is coming off of a bad loss against Navy, who looked horrible in their first couple of games. South Florida was able to hang with Florida two weeks ago, but got absolutely drilled by Louisville last week. I am not sure what to expect from ECU after last game and South Florida has been good against the spread. I am taking the Bulls here. Note: This game was moved to Boca Raton due to Hurricane Ian.
