    ISU 25.5 @ Tech opening line

    Around what I thought.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    It cannot be too much higher. We may win.

    Re: ISU 25.5 @ Tech opening line

    Wow. I'd be tempted to take the spread on that one. On the other hand.... Tech has a nasty habit of putting up a LOT of points, and we haven't proven that we can do it.

    Re: ISU 25.5 @ Tech opening line

    I LOVE taking ISU with huge lines(Iowa,TExas,NU), but this week against a pass happy Tech team. Im gonna stay away from it. It seems like i only make any money off of ISU being bigtime dogs, but this week may be a minimum bet. Look at how bad we were against the pass against NU, we got burned a lot. Un fortunately, I wouldnt be surprised to see us lose by 28.

    Re: ISU 25.5 @ Tech opening line

    25.5 is a lot of points, too many. If we are able to hold onto the ball and not turn it over (an do many other things granted) we have a chance to win, not a chance to not get blown out. This is a conference game and I expect us to be competative through most of the game. It may get out of hand near the end, but 3 and half touchdowns is too many points.

    Go Clones!

    TT at home has made the Clones look pretty silly over the last few years. If CG can go in there and make a game of it that will be a huge step in the right direction.

    I agree, but I dont think that step will happen. GC is taking and will take ISU in the right direction, but this won't be the week you see it. I would be incredibly surprised if we win or if we're even in the game in the late 3rd Q/4th Q. We just need to look to improve the things we can handle. Take better care of the football (cut down those turnovers), get better on 3rd down (on both sides of the ball), and find a way to get the ball in the end zone around the red zone instead of settling for FG attempts.

    Re: ISU 25.5 @ Tech opening line

    TT has a HUGE Offensive line and likes to throw short passes which we always seem to have a hard time defending against. We'd have to play one heck of a game to win I think.

    Re: ISU 25.5 @ Tech opening line

    If I had money, I'd put down $500 on ISU to stay within 25 points, and I'd do it with confidence.

    I was saying the same thing to a guy at work this morning. We would have no problem dropping a $100 on ISU to cover the spread from here on out except for the OU game.

    Not to sound so stupid but I have a question. Is there an online betting site that you could bet on some team? Any recommendations?

    I don't understand, isn't online betting illegal in the US? I mean since the gov has not figured a way to tax it, they don't want you doing it?
