    Tulsa listed as 3 point favorite

    I thought I saw last night that the early line was ISU as 3 point favorites...either that was wrong or the line dramatically shifted overnight because ISU is now a 3 point dog. More of an underdog now than we were back in the season opener.

    Either Vegas thinks we got worse from a 15 point win, or Tulsa dramatically improved as the year went on.

    Not sure what you're looking at. Has it ISU -3.

    It is listed as Tulsa -3. That is a low blow! Sagarin predicts ISU -6.5 That is a 2 score swing. I would bet this if I were a betting man

    Odds - NCAA FB - spread | FOX Sports on MSN

    Looks accurate. Fox Sports site also shows us as 3 point dogs. Wow.

    Re: Tulsa listed as 3 point favorite

    Makes me think there's some bad news we haven't heard yet. It was definitely us favored yesterday. Today a 6 pt difference. Not just an article, they were taking bets with us favored by 3. Now +3. Something is up. They don't often just put the + next to the wrong team.

    Re: Tulsa listed as 3 point favorite

    So we beat the snot out of these guys, play a Top 10 in the nation schedule, make a bowl, and are still underdogs?

    I get a little tired of the "no one respects ISU" lines, but Jesus ******.

    Re: Tulsa listed as 3 point favorite

    I think this happened:

    Yesterday, the oddsmakers thought they were picking Idaho State.
    Today, they saw that it's Iowa State.
    Line switches.

    I'm with Al. The "no respect" thing gets old and drama queenish, but this is stupid.

    Re: Tulsa listed as 3 point favorite

    ISU has lost 3 of 4 and Tulsa just won Conf. USA. I get that it's a joke we are not favored but to everyone not wearing God's colors ISU looks like a team limping into the postseason.
