The East Carolina Pirates are 2-1 so far this season but both of their wins are against Division II teams and their loss is against UNC-Ashville. Jeff Lebo’s team has a 304 RPI and they set up to play the 1-3rd ranked schedule in the nation. ECU is averaging 90 points per game shooting 49.7 percent and grabbing 44 rebounds while defensively they allow 71.7 points and their opponents shoot 37.2 percent. Caleb White is averaging 16.7 points and 4.7 rebounds to lead the Pirates. B.J.

ECU is going to be fun to watch with their highflying offense.
Green Bay is 7-1-1 against the spread following a win by 20 or more points, 10-4 against the spread following a loss, and 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 neutral site games. East Carolina is 3-0-1 against the spread following a win, 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, and 5-1-1 against the spread following a win by 20 r more points.
This looks to be way too many points against a team that can score like ECU so I am going to take the points.
