    Per Ken Miller: Iowa State is a 17-point underdog for next week's game with Nebraska.

    From an outsider's perspective, I think it's about right. Since I follow both programs closely, I think it might be a bit closer than that, but there's absolutely no reason for Iowa State to be favored in this game.

    Considering what's happened every other time we've run into a top 10 team, that line makes sense.

    It looks a little low to me after what happened with Iowa, OU and Utah. NU brings a very good running game, something that ISU has not come close to stopping this year. The defense seems to have made some strides in the last 2 weeks, but it is most likely the failure of the teams played in the last two weeks.

    Too high? Are you serious? I think it seems low as well. I was expecting 21 or so.

    This line seems a little low to me as well....I don't know if ISU can contain Martinez....if ISU can slow down Nebbie's rushing attack, I think ISU will have a chance in this one...however, I don't think ISU can slow down Nebbie's rushing attack, so I think NU wins it.

    My guess would be that NU wins, and if the line is 17, I say they probably cover as well.

    Considering what a betting line is and how it's set, this seems a little low to me as well. I wouldn't be shocked to see it end up around 28 or so by kickoff.

    I think it's about right, maybe even a little low.

    Sounds about what I would expect.

    If the game was in Lincoln, I would expect something nearer to 21.

    If NU had lost to Mizzou and the win over Texas had come this weekend, I could see something around 13 or 14.

    This line probably has something to do with Martinez's health status. If he was complelely healthy, I think it would be higher.

    I bet you guys the line goes down which shows that it started out to high. I bet it ends up near 15

    The key will be no interceptions for us and ability to keep Martinez from running. I think Helu just had one great day.

    I do think we will need a very nice day from A and A....
    Plus 3+ TO advantage.
    Then we win.

    6-4 with CU and Mizz remaining.
    Have a nice night.

    Sorry Clones85, but I think the KoolAid is getting to your brain a little. I agree with the rest of the posters that the line is too low and it will most likely stay or go up a little in the week ahead.

    If my bookie was taking bets for next week already I would be all over this line taking Nebraska. As a long time NCAAFB and CBB sports bettor, I can assure you this line will move, if at all, a little higher. Let's check-in at the end of the week if you want to and I will gladly eat crow if I'm wrong.

    I agree that it will go down, which means I'll bet on NU at the end of the week and make a lot of money :)

    Agree, the early money will be on Nebraska to cover. The line will only move higher. No early money will be put on ISU.
