If East Carolina had a veteran team, this would be a decent spot to fade the visitors. However, both teams feature young lineups. Simply put, Houston is a much better team and is more talented. The Cougars also have the better coach and have covered the spread at a ridiculous 9-2 ATS clip in their last 11 games. Houston has controlled the head-to-head series, winning each of the last eight meetings and covering the spread in five of the six. East Carolina is 4-8 ATS in its last 12 conference games..

Pick : Houston
Houston has had ECU's number over the past five years as they have won eight in a row since the inception of the AAC. The Coogs failed to cover the spread in only two of those games, one game ending in a push and the other being a point away from another push. Houston has scored 99, 94 and 109 in the last three meetings, compared to 65, 50 and 58 for the Pirates. They haven't just been scoring in bunches but dominant on the boards against ECU as well with a 42-20.3 advantage in those three games. The Cougars are so tough to defend while excelling defensively and another lopsided outcome will be in the works in this one.. Read more at statsalt.com
