Randy’s Free Pick
The East Carolina Pirates are coming off a terrible week and I wouldn't expect things to change on the road, where they lose by an average of 12.8 points and shoot 37.6 percent from the field. USF isn't a team you want to lay chalk with often, but this is all about how bad ECU is at the moment. Give me the Bulls in a comfortable home win.
