SMU is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games. The under is 5-0 in SMU’s last 5 road games. East Carolina is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 5-2 in East Carolina’s last 7 Saturday games. The favorite is 6-1 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

SMU is coming off of a huge win against a highly ranked Houston tea, but will need to stay focused in this game against a lesser opponent. SMU is the better team by a large margin in this matchup and pretty much do everything better than ECU does. I like SMU on the road.
