East Carolina Pirates vs South Florida Bulls Predictions 2/17/2022

 

The South Florida Bulls slipped to 7-17 on the year after losing their third consecutive game to the Tulane Green Wave, 76-57, on Tuesday night. South Florida had no offensive responses against Tulane and couldn’t come back after trailing 41-28 at halftime.

 

Tulane shot 52.7% from the field and 39.1% from beyond the arc, while South Florida shot only 34.5% from the field and 36.4% from beyond the arc.

 

Serrel Smith Jr. led the way for the Bulls with 17 points, 1 rebound, and 1 assist in 15 minutes off the bench. South Florida is generating 57.6 points per game on 37.7% shooting from the field this season. The Bulls are hitting 24.8 percent from beyond the arc, posting 4.3 three-pointers a game.

 

South Florida’s defense is keeping opponents to an average of 64.8 points per game on 41.6 percent shooting from the field. The Bulls have a 0.0 rebounding margin and a -0.1 turnover margin.

East Carolina Pirates vs South Florida Bulls. The NCAAB pick for this game is the South Florida Bulls. Eastern Carolina is 1-5 on the road this year and struggled offensively, ranking 215th in scoring offense and 317th in field goal percentage entering this match.

 

South Florida lost seven of its past eight games, but the Bulls did a good job of keeping opponents off the scoreboard, ranking 60th in scoring defense and 94th in defensive field goal percentage.

 

East Carolina is a better team, but the Pirate struggled on the road this season due to an offense that averaged just 62.5 yards per game in conference road matches, and I believe the South Florida defense can shut down the East Carolina offense. The South Florida Bulls will win to a predicted score of 67-63.
