2021 ECU Pirates Football Betting Predictions

June 21, 2021

2021 ECU Pirates Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

With an abundance of returning talent, East Carolina will look to finally turn things around despite back-to-back losing seasons. The Pirates are bringing back starting quarterback Holton Ahlers along with their full offensive line from last season. This team is a couple of years into a rebuild and hoping to reap the rewards of multiple losing seasons, lots of young talent available to tap into.

My preseason best bet is to just pass on ECU and here’s why. While it’s likely they repeat at least one of two wins against either Temple or USF I’m not sure this team can beat both. You can’t necessarily guarantee they win both of these matchups especially considering how close USF played them last year. After that, it’s gonna be hard to project how they play against Appalachian State, Charleston Southern, and, Marshall. If they end up winning two of three then that just leaves them at three wins which would mean they would have to either improve enough to beat tougher conference opponents or fend off the other up-and-coming teams. It’s a tough call and I don’t have enough interest in either side considering the odds.

Preseason Best Bet: Pass

ECU Odds to win 2021 AAC Championship

Yes +5000

ECU won’t be in conference championship contention this season. If they are able to continue on their steady improvement path for this rebuild then we can expect somewhere between four and six wins this year. Six wins would be ideal and give them a shot at doing something they haven’t in a while, winning a bowl game. I like the amount of returning talent they have to work with I’m just not confident they are ready to hang with the big-hitters quite yet.

2021 AAC Betting Odds

ECU Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +100000

Despite how visually appealing these odds are let’s just all agree to move on and spend our valuable bankroll elsewhere. AAC teams already have to battle just to be considered legitimate in the eyes of the national media, ECU isn’t even on the level where they’ve considered that. The Pirates are gonna aim their sites at a bowl game and be happy with it, no reason to bet this number.
