East Carolina is 6-23 ATS in their last 29 Thursday games and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games following an ATS loss. The over is 7-2 in East Carolina’s last 9 games. Memphis is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games. The under is 6-0 in Memphis’ last 6 Thursday games. The road team is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
East Carolina is coming off of one of the worst losses I have ever seen. The Pirates could not do anything on offense and got blown out in the game. Memphis has been a tough team to read this season because they have a lot of talent, but don’t play well together as a team. Memphis defeated ECU by one point in their first meeting of the season. I am taking Memphis in this game solely based on how bad East Carolina was last game.
