The East Carolina Pirates and the UCF Knights meet in college basketball action from the Addition Financial Arena on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
UCF is listed as an 11.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 135.5 points.
For East Carolina, Javon Small is listed as out indefinitely with a knee injury while CJ Walker is out for the season for UCF with a leg injury.
UCF’s 64-61 win back on January 4th, 2023, made it 15 straight wins for the Knights in their head-to-head matchup.
East Carolina is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS win. UCF is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 home games.
I’m backing East Carolina here. UCF just isn’t in the kind of form that I want to be laying 11.5 points with and while East Carolina hasn’t been good, they’ve at least been able to keep it semi-respectable in some of their recent games and I think they could keep this game to single digits. Give me East Carolina and the points here.
