    Those lines really don't make any sense. Not to me anyway.

    So the spread for us against West Virginia is more than the spread for us against Toledo? hmm......

    That is a fascinating line of numbers there Baxter. Thanks.

    With that said, the voters / gamblers / bookies think we have a better chance of beating Kansas and West Virginia than we do both Toledo and North Dakota State. Hmm.... I don't think I could make money in the gambling world over the long haul.

    The sad part of that quote is that of the 5 games that are within a TD either way, we are favored in 4 of them.

    Sorry, after I posted I realized I didn't mention where numbers came from. Lines based off power ratings from former Las Vegas bookmaker Chris Andrews. Home field is then factored into the line. The % chance to win is based off the line for the game, this is how Vegas sets over under. Currently offshore sportsbooks have ISU @ 3.5 for over/under
