The East Carolina Pirates and UCF Knights face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Dickies Arena. 

The East Carolina Pirates are having another down year sitting with an 8-10 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Cincinnati, the defense really struggled 82 points and that led to the defeat. East Carolina on the season is averaging 65.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 68.1 points per game. In the last game it was the defense that really struggled andthey can’t let that happen again in this game. Forward Jayden Gardner has been the best player for East Carolina averaging 18.3 points while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 50 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the UCF Knights who sit with a 10-11 record overall but they are getting hot at the right time winning four games in a row. Each of the last five games, the Knights have also come away with a cover of the spread. UCF is averaging 67.2 points per game while their defense is giving 69.8 points per game. East Carolina is shooting 43.1 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from behind the three point line.

The under is 8-0 in East Carolina’s last eight games played on Thursday. East Carolina is 2-8 against the spread in their last ten games overall. The under is 27-10 in UCF’s last 37 games played on Thursday. The under is 10-4-1 in UCF’s last 15 neutral site games. 

I expect both teams are going to struggle to score in this game and that will lead to a low scoring game. Back the under to cash with ease in this game.
