EAST CAROLINA vs. OHIO
Monday, Dec. 23, 2:00 pm
ESPN On day two of the college football bowl game action, we get an interesting game between the ECU Pirates and the Ohio Bobcats. The Pirates have some very impressive wins this year, as they were able to knock off North Carolina and Middle Tennessee for starters, and also lost to Virginia Tech by only five points. The Pirates ended the year with a 9-3 record overall, but a tough loss to Marshall kept them out of the Conference USA Championship game.
In this game the Pirates get the 7-5 Ohio Bobcats, who had a pretty tough schedule this year. Ohio actually beat that same Marshall team who beat ECU, and also beat North Texas as well. Ohio did it in many different ways offensively, but they struggled a bit down the home stretch of the season, as the team lost three of their final four games.
This game is going to be an early kickoff on Monday the 23rd, and it's set to get underway at 2:00pm EST. East Carolina's offense is going to be a major deciding factor in this game for sports bettors, and we'll take a look at the match-up more in-depth here, and then get to our thoughts.
It's all about that very, very nice passing game for the ECU Pirates. They have one of the strongest passing games in the country, as they rank 10th in passing yards per game at 331.5, and the great passing numbers have led to a massive number of points. The Pirates average 40.4 points per game, which is 11th best in the country, and they have been a bettors favorite when looking at betting on the total on their games.
When you look at the Ohio Bobcats, I just see a lot of middle of the road numbers, and some losses that leave you scratching your head. They're an interesting team though, and their win over Marshall is big. ECU is a heavy favorite in this game though, as they are laying around -13.5 on most sportsbooks, and I expect this number to get to -14 and possibly even higher and why I posted this game almost 10 days ago with the lower pointspread.
ECU has the far better offense, and in all honesty they just have a better team this year. I expected ECU to push Marshall and possibly play in the C-USA title game, but they couldn't get it done. They'll show us something on Monday though, and get a nice bowl game win against the Bobcats by more than the -13.5 spread. East Carolina should win this game by 3 touchdowns and really dont see this game being close. As always, check back as we get closer to game.
