    Opening line - Iowa State +1 vs Texas Tech

    Line opened at +1. Offshore odds that are available have the game as a Pick. I'm curious to see how the line moves as the week goes on.

    Definitely fine with being the dogs!!! Keeps the players on point and gives them a little extra fire, even though CP-R won't let them look past anyone.

    Re: Opening line - Iowa State +1 vs Texas Tech

    I love being the underdog. Love it. But did anyone else see Iowa is -6 against Minnesota? The Gophers may not be great, but they are 4-0, have beaten Iowa two years straight, Iowa just lost at home to CMU. I don't get it.

    I'll predict the line slides towards TTU around -2 for them.

    Re: Opening line - Iowa State +1 vs Texas Tech

    And Oklahoma State is -5.5 over Texas? I see Texas winning that even if it's in Stillwater.

    For the umpteenth time, it isn't about who Vegas thinks will win, it is about evening up the money. If a team is a soft bet historically and another is always a strong bet, they will anticipate where the line will even up the money.

    The line has already been bet down to -1.5 OSU apparently. Rightfully so.
    RT @DanWolken: Apparently that Oklahoma St -5 over Texas has already been bet down to -1/1.5

    Re: Opening line - Iowa State +1 vs Texas Tech

    Kind of rediculous considering we beat them by 34 points the last time we played. Oh well if I am Tech I don't want to be favorites against Rhoads.

    Good grief, sorry I'm not as well-versed in betting lines than you. Let me bow at your feet and all your wisdom. Jesus, it was a ******* opinion.

    Probably about right. Our offense will drag us down until we change things up.

    Apparently this is the first ever line thread involving either ISU or Iowa you have opened here because that information ends up in every single one of them.
