    Keep your eyes open because the early lines get posted on and off through the summer on certain sites. You can catch it sometime im sure. I will let you all know if I see it again

    It was @iowa and ISU’s first game to Iowa’s second and no Purdy, I’m actually surprised it didn’t open higher than -6 in that situation.

    The line for this year’s game will likely officially open around ISU +3 and probably close ISU +1 or pick em.

    She has 30 days from date she rec'd it. News conference yesterday said she is handling like all bills she receives and having her policy staff review before she makes decision.

    Gotta believe she'll $ign it. Obviously not a big issue for her since she's never spoken in favor of it in the past (or against for that matter), but state needs the revenue, her own party pushed for this initially (and it became bi-partisan in passage) and overall the majority of the public that cares seems to be in favor.

    This isn't such a surefire thing to the casino boys, more than a little apprehension.

    My understanding is you will have to go to a casino the first time to setup the account but will then be able to bet via your phone as long as you are located in Iowa.

    Plan is to have it ready for football season. All depends on Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.

    And the state of Nebraska decides again that it can't afford to freeze/reduce property taxes and that it still needs to raise the sales tax and other specific taxes. And more cars are seen driving from Omaha to the Council Bluff's casino's...

    But Nebraska can claim the morale ground...we don't have gambling...no one can afford to own a house here...but we don't have gambling.
