    Working on a column, need your opinion

    If Iowa State were to play Navy in Houston, who would be the favorite?

    Re: Working on a column, need your opinion

    I would say Navy but probably by less than 3 points. Pretty much a toss up.

    Navy, I just think that vegas would see them as the favorite not that i think they are better than us.

    Re: Working on a column, need your opinion

    With the way our offense is playing right now, it has to be Navy.

    Re: Working on a column, need your opinion

    Vegas would favor Navy, my guess by anywhere between 2.5 and 4.5 points.

    I think y'all are right on the number ... Navy -3 to -6

    Thanks everyone. That's kind of what I thought too but I thought I'd ask the experts.

    Re: Working on a column, need your opinion

    BUT I think that would be a good matchup for us ... our lack of pass rush would not be a factor and I don't think they would overwhelm us with speed ... granted, there would be other challenges to playing Navy, but I would welcome that game compared to some other possibilities

    If TCU would be favored over Cincy I would have to think Navy would be favored over ISU

    Plus we've got the benefit of playing Army, with a similar offense, this season. Our guys would have already seen and practiced against it.

    Re: Working on a column, need your opinion

    Wait, why are you working on a column right now? You realize your Vikings are playing right now, right?


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    jk. there are a lot of people good at picking such things. Just wouldnt always know it to look at bookie!

    I confess I would have no basis for picking on that one. I would have said Navy only because I know they beat ND and that alone is a better win than any we have.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
