East Carolina Pirates vs Cincinnati Bearcats Predictions 1/12/2022

 

After being upset by Tulane to open AAC play, Cincinnati appeared to be amid a reconstruction under first-year head coach Wes Miller, and its inconsistency continued with a close defeat to Memphis on Sunday.

 

Cincinnati looked set for a major win with an 80-79 advantage in the final minute on Mika Adams-Woods’ basket after Memphis dominated by double digits in the first half, but Memphis replied with a jumper with 41 seconds remaining and was clutch at the free-throw line down the stretch.

 

Cincinnati is 5-7-3 against the spread this season and only covered once in their previous four matches, a 77-60 victory against SMU as a close favorite. Although the game versus Memphis comfortably went above the betting total of 142 points, the overs are just 5-10 for Cincinnati.

 

Cincinnati’s offense is below average across the board, averaging 71.2 points per game on 49.7% two-point shooting and 31.2 percent three-point shooting. The Bearcats made up for it on defense, permitting 62.2 points per game, good for 38th in the US, with opponents shooting 41.3 percent from two (fourth in college basketball) and 30.1 percent from three (61st).

 

  • The University of Cincinnati Bearcats is 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Cincinnati’s last 5 matches against East Carolina.

East Carolina Pirates vs Cincinnati Bearcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is the East Carolina Pirates. The Cincinnati defense’s single significant flaw is sending opponents to the free-throw line too frequently, which will be crucial in this game because ECU gets to the free-throw line at a top 100 rate and shoots a fantastic 75.4 percent when there.

 

This season, ECU is more competitive than most expected, and Cincinnati had too many problems hitting shots consistently to create such a large lead. The East Carolina Pirates will win to a predicted score of 72-67.
