Our East Carolina vs Tulsa totals pick has the over/under for this AAC contest at 59.5. The over is at -103 and the under, which is slightly favored, is at -107. Overall, prognosticators are liking the under in this game. The fact is that the Golden Hurricane bring a sound defense to the field. They should be able to slow down the East Carolina offense. That defense is what we expect will slow down scoring to a degree. That will certainly the under. Another thing that will help is Tulsa’s scoring chops, which are not bad but certainly not stellar. This game will be played at Chapman Stadium in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Kickoff is set for 9:00 pm ET on Friday, October 30, 2020.
East Carolina vs Tulsa Total Pick – Offenses & Defenses
The Pirates are averaging 31.0 PPG, while the Golden Hurricane defense is allowing just 18.3. Might that Tulsa defense keep the East Carolina Pirates in check? If they do, and, at the same time, if the Golden Hurricane can be contained slightly, the score of this game should be relatively low. Also favoring the under is the fact that the Pirates prefer to run rather than pass. They’ll be trying to grind this game out, which should keep the score low. If East Carolina is forced to pass, that should also keep the total under, as their pass attack has been ineffective.
