The East Carolina Pirates rewarded bettors with a seven-game win streak ATS during the 2021 season. One of those covers came against a solid Houston team. ECU, as a 13.5-point road dog, hung tough in a 31-24 loss.
This is ECU’s first bowl appearance since 2015, and the Pirates should be enthused about playing in it. ECU’s program is headed in the right direction under coach Mike Houston, who recently signed a multi-year extension.

The biggest news surrounding the Duke’s Mayo Bowl dropped in early December when North Carolina QB Sam Howell announced he would be playing in the game. North Carolina, keyed by Howell’s passing and running, averaged 36.4 points a game. Howell is truly a dual threat QB. He rushed for more than 800 yards and 11 TDs to complement 2,851 yards and 23 passing TDs.
While North Carolina’s offensive firepower simply can’t be matched by the Gamecocks, the Tar Heels gave up an average of 31.6 points per game on defense. Expect the Tar Heels and Howell to shine in his final collegiate game, with this game going ‘over’ 58.5 points.
