2013-11-23 - East Carolina Pirates at North Carolina State

A Sports Betting Preview by Auls

East Carolina Pirates @ North Carolina State Wolfpack
United States: NCAA College Football
Saturday 23 November 2013 - Kick Off 12:30pm
5:30pm (British Time)


Preview


This is an important local game for both of these schools and understandably pride is on the line. The East Carolina Pirates (8-2) are going to be playing for the Conference-USA East title next week, but will be looking to add North Carolina State (3-7) to their win column after already beating North Carolina earlier this season.

East Carolina will be going for their fifth win in a row, the first time they could potentially reach that mark in almost 15 years. The Wolfpack themselves will be looking to snap their 6 game losing run which has ended their chances of becoming Bowl eligible.

The Pirates have been brilliant throwing the ball around all season and Shane Carden is coming off a game where he threw 5 Touchdown passes. He had almost 350 passing yards in that game and the Offense has averaged 341 yards per game this season and should have their success in this one despite North Carolina State being solid statistically in pass Defense.

However, you can't read anything solely by statistics as the Wolfpack have been trampled on the ground and are giving up 5.2 yards per carry. That doesn't bode well for them as East Carolina, who have been poor running the ball for much of the season, racked up 278 yards on the ground last week. That was the highest total of the season for the Offense and establishing the running game again will only open things up for Carden to do what he does best when throwing the ball.

East Carolina should be able to continue their Offensive output in this one, so North Carolina State need to match them. For a school that recently had NFL starting Quarter Backs in Russell Wilson and Mike Glennon, North Carolina State have struggled with an inconsistent Pete Thomas this season.

Thomas has thrown 4 Touchdown passes, but 9 Interceptions this season and has struggled to stay upright behind the Offensive Line. East Carolina have had leads so have been able to pin back their ears and rush the Quarter Back with a lot of success throughout the season and will expect the same here, while the Secondary have Intercepted the ball regularly.

It would be a long day in the office for North Carolina State without a running game and that could be tough to establish as the Pirates are giving up just 3 yards per carry. It has been difficult for the Wolfpack to get the running game going throughout the season and it would be tough for them to rely on an inconsistent Thomas if they don't find running room in this one.

East Carolina won the last time these schools met in 2010 when coming through in overtime, but they lost the last time they played at North Carolina State in extra time. The last 8 games in the series have been split 4-4.


Prediction


The match up here looks a good one for the East Carolina Pirates on both sides of the ball and I would expect Shane Carden to really have another big game as long as the Pirates can keep the rushing game going from last week.

Carden and the Offense have put up big points and that has allowed the Defense to excel with their pass rush as teams are forced to play catch up. North Carolina State have struggled to run the ball and becoming one-dimensional against this Defense when potentially chasing a game is not the position they will want to be in.

The Pirates have already crushed North Carolina earlier this season and I think they are going to be too strong for the Wolfpack too. It doesn't look enough points to be giving an Offense like East Carolina's and they should be able to win by a Touchdown with a turnover or two in their favour.

The Pick :

North Carolina State Wolfpack 24-31 East Carolina


FIXED ODDS BETTING :

I'll back the East Carolina Pirates - 6 Points @ 2.00 (Paddy Power)
