Temple vs. East Carolina,
10/03/2019 20:00 EDT,
Score: 27 - 17
Total: -110/+48 Under
East Carolina has played five games under new head coach Mike Houston. Each game has gone Under the total. Will this one break the Under streak?
I say no.
I thought QB Holton Ahlers would be a lot better for the Pirates. But he hasn't. Ahlers has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns and his downfield throws have lacked accuracy.
Temple has surrendered only one touchdown pass all season. The Owls give up just 17.2 points per game. They just defeated Georgia Tech, 24-2, last week.
East Carolina has held its last two foes, William & Mary and Old Dominion, to an average of 14 points. Temple QB Anthony Russo has been picked off four times in the last two games. Russo has thrown at least one interception in all four of Temple's games. He completed just 9-of-22 passes against Georgia Tech.
Note temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s in Greenville with extremely high humidity. So that could take a toll on the players.
