    Vegas has Iowa as a 9 1/2 favorite over ISU. Thoughts

    No surprise, since it's in Iowa City.
    Still one we can win, but the line is about what I'd expect to see.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    My initial thoughts are its way too low. Looking through some of the other lines, Vegas is not as high on Iowa as I would be.

    I think we go down by at least 14 points. So I'm happy that Vegas thinks highly of us

    This early where I expected. It will move up this summer a bit, then once the season starts tighten up to -7 to -7.5 the week prior. Hawk fans will jump on this early, then when they look terrible against UNI, the real money will go on ISU to cover and tighten it all back up. DFW, I'd of thought you to be outraged EIU was less than a double digit favorite this early.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Gametime spread should be Iowa -5.5.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    Maybe if Iowa loses to UNI and ISU looks good against NDSU.

    Aren't they only underdogs in one game next year? I saw a Morehouse tweet that said as much but I didn't read the article he linked to.

    From what I read if ISU beats the mighty Bison they can win the Big XII! But in all seriousness I'm a little surprise the line isn't double digits.
