Over on the Bearcats’ side, they’re 10-7 so far. Cincinnati is also 2-2 in their last four games, with wins over Tulsa and UCF alongside losses to Tulane and Memphis in that stretch. 

In the loss to the Tigers, Cincinnati’s top scorer was Jarron Cumberland with 19 points, four rebounds and two assists. Also in double-digits there was Keith Williams on 12 points, eight rebounds and two assists. 

The under is 5-1 in the Bearcats’ last six overall and the over is 3-1-1 in their last five Sunday games. Cincinnati is 22-48 ATS in their last 70 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. 

Meanwhile, the Pirates are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 road games versus a team with a winning home record. The under is 5-2 in East Carolina’s last seven overall and the over is 10-4 in their last 14 Sunday games. 

East Carolina is something of a maddening team this season. They held up pretty strong in a tough road matchup versus Wichita State (75-69) but then were blown away 65-49 by Tulsa a couple of games later. 

As for Cincinnati, the’ve put up some relatively tepid offensive outings in their last couple of games, but on the whole they’ve been scoring pretty well this season. I’m going to go with the Bearcats on the cover here but I don’t necessarily like it.
