East Carolina Pirates vs UCF Knights. The NCAAB pick for this game is the UCF Knights. East Carolina has a strong argument to make here, as UCF isn’t blowing teams away, for the most part, this year.

 

The Pirates, on the other hand, struggled to win on the road, while UCF, well, they at least won big at home, as we saw UCF do throughout conference play. UCF’s only wobble at home came against Houston, and many teams will lose to the Cougars no matter where they play. In this one, I’ll take UCF at home. The UCF Knights will win to a predicted score of 76-64.
