    Iowa v ISU line (Monday)???????

    Okay just saw the line for the ISU v Iowa game on saturday....a real head scratcher. The line for this game is at 7 1/2 pts???? What does this mean? The usual line for this game is up around 17. It isn't like ISU dominated UNI and Iowa barely squeaked by this week against Tenn Tech. Is Vegas giving UNI love, or is it trying to draw in the sucker bets?

    Vegas does not try to draw in sucker bets. They put the line where half bet one way and half bet the other way, with the -110, vegas wins every time.

    The line is hardly ever at -17 for Iowa. This is an in-state rivalry game which usually lowers the line, it is also being played in Ames lowering it more.

    We are playing a B1G entry game. We have to play to get in. Then we have to beat UCONN to get a BE invite.

    It means that 7 1/2 points is where Vegas figures they will get equal money on both sides. It means nothing more, nothing less.
