UCF Knights vs East Carolina Pirates 10/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The UCF Knights will go against the East Carolina Pirates in NCAAF action in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, NC, on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at 7:30 PM ET.

 

The UCF is consistently a powerhouse in the AAC, and this year is no exception. They are 2-0 in the AAC and have a record of 5-1 overall. They are just one game behind Tulane, who is 3-0, and are tied with Cincinnati at 2-0.

 

They are rated No. 38 in the college football power rankings going into this matchup. The Knights just defeated AAC rival Temple 70-13.

 

They were 23.5-point favorites going into the game, but they crushed that line. They were as impressive the week before, trouncing SMU 41-19 despite being only a 3-point underdog.

 

Last Saturday, the Knights dominated Temple, winning 70-13 after racking up an absurd 737 total yards against the Owls. Compared to Temple’s 19, they had 29 first downs, and they only surrendered 293 total yards.

 

This was the best kind of beating. John Rhys Plumlee, the quarterback, was almost flawless, completing 18 of 22 passes for 373 yards, 4 touchdowns, and no interceptions.

 

For those keeping track at home, Plumlee had a staggering 7 touchdowns on the day thanks to his additional 37 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

 

  • The Central Florida Knights are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Central Florida’s last 5 matches. 
  • The Knights are 8-1 SU in their last 9 matches.

UCF Knights vs East Carolina Pirates 10/22/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The East Carolina Pirates have a 4-3 overall record and a 2-2 AAC record going into their conference matchup. In the most recent CBS college football power rankings, they are rated No. 65.

 

The Pirates saw ups and downs, but they recently defeated Memphis in a thrilling four-overtime game at home as a 5.5 point favorite, 47-45.

 

After falling behind 17-0 in the first half, the Pirates came roaring back to lead 30-23. However, the Tigers quarterback Seth Henigan connected with Joseph Scates on a 13-yard touchdown throw to level the score at 30.

 

The Pirates managed to win after four extra periods. Both teams had comparable totals for yards and first downs, making it a very competitive contest.

 

Holton Ahlers, the quarterback for East Carolina, was 26 for 34 for 304 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions, leading the team to 492 yards of total offense. He made a touchdown on the ground as well.

 

But the star of the show was running back Keaton Mitchell, who scored three touchdowns while averaging 5.1 yards per rush for 149 yards.

 

  • The East Carolina Pirates are 10-5 ATS in their last 15 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of East Carolina’s last 6 matches. 
  • The Pirates are 8-4 SU in their last 12 matches.

UCF Knights vs East Carolina Pirates. The NCAAF pick for this game is the UCF Knights. In the previous three meetings, the East Carolina Pirates were a shoo-in to cover the spread against UCF. However, given that East Carolina showed to be quite competitive this year, the spread is a little closer than usual.

 

But as UCF demonstrated in a very stunning 41-19 victory against a talented SMU team that defeated the Navy, they just have too much firepower for East Carolina to manage.

 

And earlier this year, East Carolina suffered a loss to the Navy. The issue is that UCF can defeat you both on the ground and in the air, and East Carolina was one of the worst pass defenses in the nation.

 

The Knights won’t be slowed down enough for them to cover. The UCF Knights will win by a predicted score of 33-28.
