When and Where: Sunday, Jan. 15, Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum, Greenville, N.C., 4pmET

Line: Cincinnati -15

Total: 121.5

Cincinnati has won seven straight games including a 66-64 home win over SMU on Thursday to break the Mustangs 10-game winning streak. ECU is 1-4 in the AAC after falling to Houston at home on Wednesday, 74-58. Last season, Cincinnati won both games, including a 65-56 road win on Feb. 27.

Bearcats hold on to beat Mustags

No. 22 Cincinnati controlled the game against SMU for the most part, but it still came down to the last possession. Gary Clark led the Bearcats with 12 of his 18 points in the second half, while Troy Caupain added 16 points. Cincinnati played with great poise and efficiency as they committed just four turnovers, while registering 19 assists. The Bearcats made 12 of 256 from three-point  range against one of the toughest defenses in the AAC.

Cincinnati averages 78.4 points per game and shoots 48.4 percent from the field. They allow 61.6 points per game (12th) and 36.3 percent (2nd) from the field. Jacob Evans leads the Bearcats in scoring with 14.4 points per game and shoots 41.7 percent from three-point range. Kyle Washington adds 13.56 points and 54.8 percent from the field (42.1% 3pt).

Pirates need to find an offense

East Carolina scored just 58 points in a home  loss to Houston on Wednesday. The Pirates shot just 34 percent from the floor and a dreadful 3-of-22 from three-point range. Houston shot 46.7 percent from the field and made 13-of-23 (56.5%) from long distance. Kentrell Barkley led the Pirates with 13 points and also had eight rebounds on 3-of-12 shooting. Junior guard B.J. Tyson, who averages 11.9 points per game to lead ECU, and 2.9 assists, was held to just nine points and five boards. He also sustained a knee injury and could be out for an extended period of time.

East Carolina averages 62.7 points per game and shots 40.5 percent from the field (29.8% 3pt). They allow just 62.6 points per game and 38 percent (8th) from the field. Guard Caleb White is the second-leading scorer on the team with 11.4 points per game, while shooting 39 percent from the field (38.9% 3pt).

College Basketball Trends:

Cincinnati is:

  • 39-14 Under last 53 road games.
  • 44-19 Under last 63 after an ATS loss.

East Carolina is:

  • 5-2-1 Under last 8 Sunday games.

This game is going to be truly ugly. How will ECU score without Tyson? They weren’t scoring with him. The only thing the Pirates have is their defense.

Pick: Under 121.5
