    Iowa 14.5 point favorite next Saturday

    Just got a tip that Iowa will be a 14.5 point favorite over the Cyclones next Saturday in Kinnick Stadium.

    About what I expected.

    I think we'll cover.

    I think we'll cover. I still have us in a loss, but only by 7 or 10, I think.

    Wow, I really think we cover that. The .5 is HUGE.

    Not that it matters and will be covered ad nauseum this week, but did Miller share any early thoughts on the number (moving up/down) and where he'd put his money.

    I'm not a gambler, but I'd take ISU and the points.

    I hope so, I bet a co-worker a case of brews on the game. I got 14.5 and the good guys. Pretty good guess on my part.

    I see ISU losing by 14 at worst.

    Honestly guys, I thought that the spread would open at around 17.

    I thought it was 17+ also. I am not looking forward to this game much.

    I actually figured it would open at 20 or worse. The reason being is I heard they usually give the home team an automatic 7. Then 13pts isn't that much. I really think we need to be in the game at half time, to give a shot at the upset.

    It depends. I think it depends on who the home team is. I heard a vegas guy on the radio explaining this one time.

    Was just told that Kinnick is a 6 point Stadium. Iowa State gets 4.5 at Jack Trice Stadium. The biggest home field advantage in football according to Vegas is Boise, who gets 7.5.
