    Vegas is not giving much credit to Hilton Magic.

    Two pretty evenly matched teams is what it tells me. Edge to ISU since its at home.

    I know it's a rivalry but I was expecting closer to -5. I'm guessing it stays there or moves up slightly. I would feel comfy betting(if I still did) at -4.5.

    So Iowa would be 3-4 pt favorite on a neutral court? Really??

    Re: Iowa State opens as a 2.5 point favorite over Iowa

    Hilton Magic and ISU's recent 40-2 home record in non-fixed games suggest this could be a steal for picking ISU.

    Tendency for Ejim and Niang to get into unnecessary foul trouble + Iowa's free throws per game average is what has me worried and why this line makes sense.

    If this game is about hitting actual shots I take ISU all day, if it's about constantly parading to the free throw line Iowa has the edge or hopefully Hilton Magic bails us out and keeps it close. ISU simply has players who are much better at putting the ball in the hoop during live play.

    I don't get that line. Thought it would be -6.5

    I don't get everyone's disrespect towards Iowa this year. They are good fellas. It'll be another great game and test for this team. Go clones!

    Mildly surprising. I expected it to be around 4.5 or 5. Either way, I wouldn't touch this game if I was a betting man.

    There's more than one way to skin a cat, whether you like it or not. Iowa's method of offense is just as effective as Iowa State's at putting points on the board.

    A team that attempts as many 3's as ISU does isn't going to get to the line as much as a team like Iowa.
