Free NCAA Football Pick: Temple Owls -13

The Temple Owls have dominated the number against the East Carolina Pirates in recent history as they have covered the spread in 6 consecutive meetings. The Temple Owls have gotten off to a solid start to the season as they are 3-1, and a huge part for that is their stingy defense as they have held 3 of their opponents under 17 points. QB Anthony Russo had a shaky game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets but he has been very good over his career, and he should be able to turn it up in conference play. The East Carolina Pirates weren’t very impressive on the offensive side of the ball against Old Dominion as Holton Ahlers only connected on 38% of his passes while throwing 2 interceptions, and Temple will make them pay for that. Final Score Prediction, Temple Owls win and cover ATS 35-13.
