Through 6 games this season the leading scorer for the Pirates has been Caleb White who is averaging 13.0 points per game and 3.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists. Behind him is B.J. Tyson who is averaging 10.5 points per game and 5.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists. Third on the team is Kentrell Barkley who is averaging 8.3 points per game and 6.2 rebounds.

Florida Atlantic has only won 1 game out of their first 5 this season and hold a 1-4 record. Their most recent game was a 79-65 loss to Lipscomb. In that game their leading scorer was Adonis Filer who scored 18 points and 3 rebounds and 2 assists. Through 5 games this season the leading scorer of the Owls has been C.J. Turman who is averaging 12.6 points per game and 6.2 rebounds. Second on the team is Adonis Filer 11.4 who is averaging 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists. FAU will try to get back on track with a win on the road.
Florida Atlantic is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games following a straight up loss. The Owls are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning percentage of greater than .600. East Carolina is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning percentage below .400. The Pirates are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 home games.
Florida Atlantic has not looked that good so far this year losing four out of their first 5. East Carolina hasnt been great but they have been playing better than FAU. I like East Carolina here at home. Take East Carolina to cover at home.
