East Carolina Pirates


Temple Owls
Saturday, November 01, 2014 12:00 PM ET

East Carolina looms as a small-pond bully, but is also only 1-5 ATS in its last six games as a favorite on the road. On the other end of the college football betting trend spectrum Temple is 3-1 ATS in its last four games as a home dog. The 6-1 Pirates, tied for first place in the AAC, will be road favorites when festivities kick off with the 4-3 Owls Saturday afternoon in Philly. East Carolina has won five games in a row SU, after beating Connecticut last week 31-21, but it's lost three games in a row ATS, because it's been favored by 40, 17 and 27 points.

These teams may be conference rivals now, but the last time they met was back in 1995 when the Pirates beat the Owls down in Greenville 32-22.
