    ISU a 19 point favorite for Saturday

    Multiple sportsbooks are now posting the odds (College Football - odds - Rivals.com) and the concensus seems to be ISU by 19 with the O/U at 56 or 56 1/2.

    ESPN still hadn't fixed the line of ISU by 52.5 last time I checked though.

    Honestly I feel we're going to either win this game by more than three touchdowns or lose it in a heartbreaker. No in between. So I'll have my money on ISU on this one.

    For any bodog users:

    why are they always at least a day behind everyone else, and why are some games marked as "Added Game"

    2nd highest spread in Iowa State's favor in conference play since 1988. The highest was KU in 2002 (21.5 points) They won that game 45-3. Still striking to see the number that high.

    Added Game - For sports betting, a game not part of Las Vegas regular rotation posted as an accommodation to customers.

    With regards to BoDog, it usually means a game that isn't on TV or is between smaller schools.

    BoDog usually puts its lines up more than a day after everyone else and the reasoning is simple, it limits their risk. Say the ISU/KU game opens at 19, but Vegas receives a bunch of money on KU and it settles near 17. BoDog will wait until the first wave of money comes in (usually sharps), and put out the safer line. You are welcome to complain to them, but they will likely tell you to go gamble elsewhere.

    Some books do take pride in being the first line out there, but BoDog obviously isn't one of them.

    Wow, what a difference a week makes. Had we gotten throttled by Texas this would be a 1 score spread. So far this year we've played well in games we were "supposed" to win, lets hope that continues.

    This game was off the book until this afternoon because Vegas was waiting to see if Webb was in or out. They are going to start the 3rd string QB.

    Thanks! I just wasn't sure because it seemed like they never had lines on them, when other sites did... i guess i probably haven't been looking late enough

    In my limited experience with BoDog, they will eventually have every single CFB line available - but they are BY FAR the slowest at putting lines up of all the sites I look at.

    Re: ISU a 19 point favorite for Saturday

    America has spoken, the line moved to ISU by 19 1/2. Wouldn't be suprised if it moved to 20 or more before Saturday. I really don't care about covering the spread if we get a win, but I'd love to see us run hog wild over a team for once. I feel good about Rhoads getting the team ready and avoiding the trap of this pre-Nebraska game.

    OWH has the line as only ISU by 12. Must be more Turner Gill supporters around here.

    Re: ISU a 19 point favorite for Saturday

    I'm thinking that's a little high. I'll say a win by 14 is about the max that this one will get to.

    I'm referring to the Vegas lines as posted on Yahoo! Sports, ESPN, etc...


    Well, actually last i checked ESPN still hadn't fixed the typo that showed us being the 52.5 point favorite. Now that would be a line I'd like to see.

    Thats a big line ISU has won very few conference games by that many pts over the years.
