ECU is the better defensive team and the better free throw shooting team which is something I look for in short spreads like this. Although all the trends point to Tulane, ECU is set to get some wins as they should be well rested going into this one. I like for them to get the win. The Pirates are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall but should turn it around.
