Wichita State vs. East Carolina Pick

Wichita State vs. East Carolina College Basketball Predictions 1/11/18

Will No. 5 Wichita State have any issues when it goes on the road to face East Carolina tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Wichita State is favored heavily on the road, as the Shockers are getting odds of -23.5 points against East Carolina. The over/under total for the game is listed at 140.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Minges Coliseum in Greenville, North Carolina and will air live on ESPN2.

Wichita State is on a five-game win streak right now. The Shockers are now 13-2 overall, 3-0 in the AAC and 6-7 against the spread. Wichita State is averaging 85.1 points per game on offense while allowing 68.8 per game on defense. Landry Shamet is leading Wichita State with 16.1 points and 4.7 assists per game while Shaquille Morris is adding 12.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per contest.

East Carolina is coming off a 70-65 loss at UConn this past weekend for its fourth loss in six games. The Pirates are now 7-8 overall, 1-3 in the AAC and 3-5 against the spread. ECU is putting up just 65.7 points per game this season while allowing 69.3 per contest. The Pirates are led by B.J. Tyson, who is averaging 15.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. Kentrell Barkley is adding 12.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Wichita State vs. East Carolina

These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight’s contest. East Carolina doesn’t have much offense to offer and the Pirates have been dealing with injuries all season. They have five players out for tonight’s game due to injuries or suspensions. That lack of depth will make it tough to compete with an aggressive Wichita State team. The public betting is strongly with Wichita State and I agree with them.
