East Carolina Pirates vs Memphis Tigers Free NCAA Pick

East Carolina Pirates (-4) @ Memphis Tigers Pick: This is a Tuesday game, and I’m sure standard mid-week rates apply, the home dog usually seems like a nice bet in that case. But I don’t see it here. East Carolina has downed Memphis three straight seasons, and covered seven straight. While the home team has won 7 of the last 10 in this series, and East Carolina is 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games on the road, I just don’t see any value in a Memphis team that, quite frankly, hasn’t looked worth a bet yet this year. Against North Carolina and West Virginia (two solid teams, both spending time in the Top 25 this year) the Pirates were within a score late in the 4th quarter. They’ve been in every game they have played. Memphis is more of a question mark every time out. They’ve looked good twice, mediocre once, and kicked around the rest of the times. Against like opponents, the Tigers are 0-2 while the Pirates 2-0. That doesn’t always matter too much, but with all the other things to like about ECU, that just helps the decision come easier. Good luck!
