East Carolina vs. Southern Miss,

Score: 76 - 78
Point Spread: +10/-110 East Carolina
East Carolina should not be catching double-digits tonight against Southern Miss. USM is clearly off to an impressive start this year, but as a result they are overvalued. I believe the Pirates are every bit as good as the Golden Eagles.
ECU is 9-4 in all games thsi season, outscoring opponents by an average of 13.2 points/game. What gives the Pirates a chance to upset almost any team is their ability to get after it defensively. ECU only yields 60.2 points/game and 38.7 percent shooting. They have only lost once this season by more than five points.
The Pirates are 10-2 ATS in road games after playing a road game over the last 3 seasons. ECU is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games overall. The Pirates are in road games after 3 consecutive non-conference games over the last 3 seasons. ECU is 11-2 ATS in road games after a game where they covered the spread over the last 3 seasons. Bet East Carolina Wednesday.
