    Memphis Tigers -11

    Memphis is coming off of a close loss to Houston in their last game, but the Pirates are nowhere near the caliber of team that the Cougars are. Look for the Tigers to also come into the game hungry to bounce back from their loss in the last game and that allows the Tigers to bring home the win in the game here and cover as the Pirates lack of offense against a good defense is a glaring issue for East Carolina. Final Score Prediction, Memphis Tigers win and cover 79-64.
