    Seems a little on the low side for me, just by a game. I think we're at worst a 5 win team and best 9-10.

    Where did you get that from? Unless I am not seeing something, I only see one prediction of 4.4 wins and 7.6 losses. Essentially, the odds say that the most likely outcome is 4-8, but 5-7 is almost as likely.

    If I could get an over/under of 4.5 on Iowa State football wins this season, I would be there in a second.
