This football pick features two very opposite teams. East Carolina is solid on offense, while their offense is one of the worst in college football. Maryland is very average on both sides of the football, and 7.5 points is a hard spread to cover in any bowl game. If this game turns into a shootout, East Carolina’s offense will be way too much. The Maryland defense will be what to watch for in this one, because this is the toughest offense they have played this year.
