    Line moving in Iowa's direction

    Did somebody get hurt in practice today or something? Around 6 today the line move from -3.5 to -5.5 on pretty much all the betting sites.

    Re: Line moving in Iowa's direction

    If the line goes up in favor of Iowa, that probably means there was too much money being put on Iowa State. Vegas needed some more action on Iowa's side.

    If I'm thinking that out correctly.

    You're correct. The line moved because too many people were betting on ISU. So take this as a GOOD thing!

    No the line moved because people were putting money on Iowa.

    Re: Line moving in Iowa's direction

    You've got it backwards. The line moves towards the direction that people are betting, not against it. This means that this afternoon a lot of money started to be put down for Iowa to cover the spread. Not that people were betting on ISU. If too much money was coming in for ISU to cover the line would move closer to zero. That's why I was wondering if somebody got hurt.

    Re: Line moving in Iowa's direction

    Uhh it it is the opposite. More people are betting Iowa. Since too many people were betting Iowa, they make the spread for Iowa to win bigger to encourage more bets on Iowa State.

    And it doesn't matter in any way shape or form other than the ability for CPR to tell his team they are the underdogs. It's about vegas wanting to make sure it assumes as little risk as possible.

    It is harder for an Iowa bet to win...... I think you are confusing a + sign and a - sign.

    Iowa is favored, now they are favored by more. They have to win by more for you to win the bet now.
