    What's the spread for Thursday?

    I would think we would be 8-10 point favorites.

    Bison burgers, nachos, potato salad and more beer than you can shake a stick at.

    I'd say more like 10-13.

    8-10? It has to be more but spreads against D-1AA (yes, I know) teams can be tough to find.

    8-10 pts? If I were going to bet on NDSU, you'd have to give me at least 20.

    Re: What's the spread for Thursday?

    I wish we were 50 point favorites, but we're not. I would be more than happy if we beat a good NDSU team by 8-10 on opening day with a rookie coach.

    I know it may be hard to find, but has anyone seen a Vegas number?

    Thanks, Duke. 13 1/2 sounds good to me.

    I'm not finding 13 1/2, but Bet US has us as a 10 1/2 point favorite: Football betting odds and lines at BetUS Sportsbook and click "College 1AA." We are game 1007.

    You can always calculate your own pointspreads using Jeff Sagarin's ratings at: USATODAY.com

    We're #86 with a "predictor" of 65.4. We get 3.1 points for homefield, so we're 68.5.

    NDSU is ranked #105 with a predictor of 62.4. Therefore, Mr. Sagarin has us as a 6-point favorite. Unfortunately, he doesn't take bets. His information is for entertainment only.


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