    K-State opens as 7 1/2 point favorite

    Favored by a touchdown. That is closer than I expected. I figured it would be more in the 10-12 point range.

    Re: K-State opens as 7 1/2 point favorite

    10-12 before or after factoring in home field advantage?

    I thought I have heard Ken Miller say that Jack Trice is 5.5 or 6 point stadium.

    After. K-State is a top 10 team that has put up over 50 points in three games this year. I think we have a very good shot of beating them, but I figured the betting would favor them more than a touchdown.

    Re: K-State opens as 7 1/2 point favorite

    Good grief...even with our recent success I would figure it would be 14+. Maybe vegas is still smarting from any losses they took on the Okie lite game last year.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    I'm guessing the way they started the KU game might factor in. Might be thinking that if kansas can do that, a more capable team like ours has a decent chance.

    Re: K-State opens as 7 1/2 point favorite

    If I were an impartial betting man, I would take that in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I can't separate my feelings from this game. I figure I could take K-State giving the points and if ISU wins, I lose my bet but am still happy. However, that 7 point range that could completely ruin my day still spooks me.

    He says ~4.

    5.5 or 6 is what he says Kinnick gets.

    Re: K-State opens as 7 1/2 point favorite

    Maybe its because the only 3 KSU games Ive seen were OU, Miami, and KU... but wow.. to think of playing within 7 points of them would be awesome.

    Totally jacked for this game. Hopefully still within a few scores in the 4th to keep it interesting!

    Now we just need to live up to that in the stadium. Too many times we've had an electric crowd show up only for us to **** the bed. UT last year, Utah the year before. To keep growing as a program, not only do we need to keep increasing our wins year over year... we also need to eliminate the losses that just suck the air out of the fanbase.

    I'm not a betting man, but that's a really close line.
