East Carolina (2-3) travels to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Saturday to take on South Florida (4-1). This American Association Conference game is slated to kickoff at Noon ET. South Florida defeated East Carolina 22-17 a season ago, and did so as a 5.0-point road underdog.

Currently there's no posted total on this contest due to possible bad weather conditions in the Tampa area. At the present time, “Hurricane Mathew” isn't projected to directly hit Tampa. Nevertheless, it's something to keep an eye on over the next few days.

ECU Quarterback Questionable

Besides the weather, there's more uncertainty as it pertains to East Carolina's senior starting quarterback Philip Nelson. He's listed as questionable with an undisclosed injury. Nelson has thrown for 1753 yards and 11 touchdowns during the Pirates first 5 games. If he's unable to go, it would severely affect East Carolina's ability to stay competitive in this contest. Furthermore, Nelson's leading wide receiver Isiah Jones (66 rec./695 yds.) is nursing a foot injury. Although Jones has been upgraded from questionable to probable.

Slumping Pirates

After getting off to a 2-0 start to the season, including an upset of North Carolina State, East Carolina has gone 0-3 SU&ATS over its last 3 games. Last Saturday they lost to Central Florida 47-29 as a 3.0-point home favorite. The Pirates have been plagued by the turnover bugaboo through this current 3-game losing streak, and were guilty of 10 giveaways over that course of time.

Impressive Bounce Back Performance by Bulls

The South Florida Bulls were embarrassed two weeks ago in a 55-35 home loss to Florida State. Quite frankly, the game wasn't as close as the final score indicates. Nevertheless, they rebounded with 45-20 road win at Cincinnati last Saturday, and easily covered as a 7.0-point favorite. By virtue of that win, East Carolina has now gone 5-0 SU&ATS in their last 5 AAC contests dating back to 2015, and won by an average of 26.4 points per game.

College Football Betting Angle and Pick

Any home favorite of 15.0 to 29.0 (South Florida), coming off an away favorite ATS win in which they scored 41 points or more, versus an opponent (East Carolina) coming off a home favorite straight up loss, resulted in those sizable home favorites going 17-0 SU&ATS since 2000. Additionally, there was an average victory margin of 30.1 points per game.

Along with #6 Houston, South Florida is clearly the class of the AAC. One of my college football week 6 predictions will be on the home favorite.
