The Houston Cougars and the East Carolina Pirates meet in AAC college football action in a week 7 matchup from Dowdy-Ficken Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Houston Cougars will look for another win to add to their current 4-1 start following a 41-26 win over Tulsa last time out. D’Eriq King has thrown for 1,362 yards, 18 touchdowns and 3 interceptions while also rushing for 224 yards and 7 TDs on the ground. Patrick Carr leads the Cougs with 292 rushing yards while Marquez Stevenson has a team-high 29 catches for 432 yards and 6 touchdowns and Keith Corbin has added 318 yards and 5 touchdowns. As a team, Houston is averaging the 2nd most total yardage per game in the country with 581.4 yards per game to go along with the 4th-most points per game with 50 per contest this season.

The East Carolina Pirates will look to find some consistency after alternating wins and losses in each of their first 5 games, including a 49-6 loss to Temple in their last outing. Reid Herring has thrown for 1,273 yards, 6 touchdowns and 5 picks on 54.1% passing this season while Anthony Scott has rushed for a team-high 228 yards and Holton Ahlers has 4 rushing scores. Trevon Brown and Blake Proehl are tied for a team-high 23 receptions with Brown leading ECU with 347 yards. As a team, East Carolina is averaging 398.4 yards of total offense and 24 points per game this season.

Houston is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 conference games while the under is 16-7 in their last 23 games overall. East Carolina is 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 home games and 15-35-1 ATS in their last 51 games overall while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 conference games. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

The issue with going against Houston is that you’re basically banking on the opposition team to keep up in a track meet with the Cougars and with East Carolina I just don’t see that happening after being blown out by Temple. The Cougars have scored 40+ points in all 5 of their games this season and with the way King is slinging the ball, I can easily see Houston making it 6 in a row here so I’ll lay the points with Houston in this spot.
