    KU an 9-point favorite tonight

    Just saw that Vegas tabbed KU as a 9-point favorite for tonight. I thought I'd pass this information along to you gambling fanatics. Who do you take?

    that's it? I know Vegas lines don't really mean that much, but I find that encouraging.

    I think that definitely shows some respect for us. I would have expected it to be more like 13-15 points.

    I also believe this is respectful and Vegas is giving ISU props. This could be a culprit of how the stats factor such as Kenpom and others because of schedule. Now hopefully we don't let this one slip away.

    True, I don't think KU is nearly as good as everyone thinks they are and what their ranking says. They almost lost to USC and UCLA at home. They can be beat.

    Personel is a lot like ours as well. No great inside presence and the PG initiates a lot of offense with a stellar but young wing player.

    1. Vegas doesn't respect anybody. They are in it for the money and if they put a double digit number up there they won't get enough people betting for KU. Their ultimate goal is to get 50/50 bets.

    2. The talent level is down across the nation, so there isn't any real dominant teams. That means the home team has a shot no matter what's written on the visitors jerseys.

    Yea, I think it may be more of peolpe cooling on KU than giving us respect. Here's to hoping they are right!

    UM has more length than we have but yea their offense is almost all generated from the perimeter. The biggest difference is at the other end, Michigan's zone allowed them to balance the talent gap. Hopefully we make it as tough for KU to score as they did.

    It's one of those odd games... could go from ISU getting beat by 25 to ISU winning by 2. I would have expected 12 or 13 I guess.
