    That's mind-boggling.

    I think we can handily beat them (or otherwise). It's just mind-boggling to see outsiders make that pick.

    That seems about right.

    kenpom.com has a 69% chance that we win, and a predicted score of 71-66.

    Home court is a big deal in this one. On the road I give it to Cal.

    They probably couldn't tell what happened in that game, so that helps

    Re: ISU a 5 point favorite over CAL

    For me, the key today is, can Jake's (and our other guards) defense pressure the young Cal guards into a bad game...

    Scotty's injury status makes this a tough one to bet.

    Is DeMarcus playing?

    I know it wouldn't be a lot of minutes and all, but it would help me feel better about Scott's injury.

    So far, we win the games in which we're the favorite and lose the games in which we are not. :)
