The Memphis Tigers and East Carolina Tigers face off on Saturday in an AAC college football showdown at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. In 2021 it was East Carolina that was able to win by a point in overtime. 

East Carolina comes into this game with a 3-3 record overall but they are coming off a loss in their last game against Tulane. East Carolina’s offense ly managed nine points against Tulane, and they lost by 15 points. Under center for East Carolina is Holton Ahlers and in the last game, he completed 32 of his 51 passes for 288 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. The interceptions are going to need to be cleaned up in this game. East Carolina is averaging 30.8 points while their defense is giving up 21.2 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Memphis who sit with a 4-2 record overall but they are also coming off a loss in their last game against Houston. They were outscored 26-12 in the 4th quarter and that led to the one-point loss to Houston. Seth Henigan had a big game completing 21 of his 32 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Memphis overall is averaging 34 points while their defense is giving up 27.3 points per game. In this game, Memphis needs to play a full 60 minutes and not take their foot off the gas if they have a big lead. 

Memphis is 6-15 against the spread in their last 21 conference games. East Carolina is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games in October. Memphis is 2-12 in their last 14 meetings against East Carolina. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings played between the two teams. 

I don’t trust this East Carolina team, and I think Memphis is mad about the way the last game ended. Memphis is averaging 34 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Ahlers is going to have a couple of turnovers, and that will keep Memphis in this game. Back Memphis against the spread.
