    Iowa State @ Iowa Point Spread

    Has anyone seen a line yet for the game at Iowa at? I can't find one.

    Here is an interesting factoid for you...in the last 25 ISU/Iowa games (15 straight Hawkeye wins, then 7/10 ISU wins)...Iowa has been favored at kick-off in EVERY GAME.

    Even during our 5 game win streak we were never a favorite vs. Iowa. That goes to show you the respect level. I expect Iowa -9 to -11 point spread this weekend.

    I'm expecting the spread to be at about -4.5 favoring Iowa. This is about as balanced as the teams have been on paper for years.

    I think it will be around -10 for Iowa.

    Re: Iowa State @ Iowa Point Spread

    Spread is always too high. Easy money making betting on the Clones almost every year. FWIW, I believe we've covered 8 or 8 of the last 10 times we played Iowa.

    Let's get a CyBookie event for the prediction of the line!

    That would be surreal.

    Re: Iowa State @ Iowa Point Spread

    Its better to be under rated than over rated as Iowa has seen in the past few years. This year will be close, but Id rather go into the game as the under dog.

    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Point spreads have absolutely nothing to do with respect levels. They are set to get even betting on both sides.

    Re: Iowa State @ Iowa Point Spread

    I haven't seen anything from Las Vegas, but using the Jeff Sagarin's power ratings (from "USA Today") the Hawkeyes will be a 13-1/2 point favorite. That includes three points for home field advantage.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    What he said ^^^^^

    They are set the way they are to get EIU fans to buy 2 less cartons of menthols and put the money for their kids school supplies on the Squawkeyes.

    I guess Iowa -7.5. I looked for a line, but did not see anything yet. We will get this one out there as soon as there is a real line.

    That's what I'm hoping for. I'm looking for a pretty sweet money line...

    Correct, which is why I think it has everything to do with respect levels.
