We are 43-22 ATS in our last 65 NCAAF picks and have profited every single season and are in the green again this year. We have a 5.5* MAX POD in the Egg Bowl between Ole MIss/MIss State and we also have a play on Texas/Tex Tech.

Now onto the C- USA match up which was the CUSA GOY before the year started and it still is. In fact this is probably the game of the day. Both teams are battling for the CUSA East title and have a ton of similarities. For instance Marshall is 1st in offense and 3rd in defense, East Carolina is 2nd in both
We actually have a sneaky good QB duel and that’s while I’ll be sitting in front of the TV as both Shane Carden and Rakeem Cato have lit up the score boards with 32TD’s a piece.
Carden has proven again he can beat ACC defenses. the Pirates have had a much more chalelnging schedule with VTech, UNC, and NC State beating 2 of the 3 while Marshall played Vtech and cupcakes.
I think East Carolina’s ability to stop the run is going to be the difference. They are 9th in the country and are allowing only 2.55 ypc on the road. They also are 21st in getting to the QB with a 7.36% sack percentage. With big games like this with a lot on the line with two similar teams it almost always comes down to turnovers. East Carolina is +5 better in the TO margin than Marshall who has turned it over 20x this year. I believe East Carolina will be better in red zone defense which will give them the win.
