Temple Owls at East Carolina Pirates

Temple -11.5 at East Carolina: Temple has won and covered all five meetings in this series since 2014, including last year’s 49-6 thumping. Not much has changed to think this year’s matchup would have any different of an outcome.

The Owls own a top-25 passing game and a top-10 defense against the pass. Overall, they account for 30.5 PPG and only allow 17.2 PPG. They are also one of the healthiest squads in the nation.

The Pirates pose very little threat offensively, averaging just 21.4 PPG. Quarterback Holton Ahlers makes some very bad decisions, which is evident in his 4/5 TD/INT ratio and 54.1 percent completion rate.

Temple is 22-6 ATS the last 28 vs. conference opponents and 15-7 ATS the last 22 vs. teams with a winning record. TEMPLE
