First Vegas sportsbook At the Golden Gate has this as the line. The O/U is 44.5
Looks like -2 or -3 depending on where.
I'm jumping all over that!!
Ridiculous and without basis.
Vegas lines just follow the money, nothing more, nothing less.
They don't just pull the opening line out their ass.
That'll change by kickoff....
bet the farm boyz
Man, some of you are going to be so pissed when we win.
Of course minny will be favored. It would be completely illogical if they weren't.
-3 means Iowa is favored
But they aren't.
I’m not completely thrilled with the state of Iowa Football, but I absolutely think we’re going to take care of business Saturday.
These “bet the farm” comments are amusing.
My bad on missing that. Doesn't make sense, but sports betting is not something I follow.
The Gophers are ranked 7 too. Lol
Exactly. Their job is to get the money 50/50 split on both teams. So they obviously see more money on Iowa at this point, hence the spread to get people to take Minnie.
Maybe. Who feels confident to bet Iowa at this point? That said I would think that would play into their spread, which you would think would give Iowa points. The real money that bets usually aren't fans. The sharks simply look at it as can they cover or not without bias, which really is who they think will win and by how much.
I would bet 100 bucks iowa makes at least 6 points off kicks from Duncan, 2 field goals. not to mention the point afters. but I would safely bet that one item. nothing else.
Ha! probably a pretty safe bet...... the Hawks season so far can be summed up with the following statement: "and on 4th down, here comes the field goal unit."
I wouldn't bet a dime on this game either way, we could squeak a win out or get blown out. Total mystery.
Anyone have an update on Stanley? He looked like he was injured after the failed 2 point attempt, and they showed Petras warming up on the sidelines immediately afterword. Maybe they're keeping anything about his health under wraps for now.
Keith has more made FGs than XPs. Telling.
They showed Stanley warming up again as well. He's fine.
he is money actually. as a FG kicker. we need a stud who scores 6
Hammer the over when it’s posted. hawks get their 17 and Minnesota scores all day on a worn out iowa defense.
37-17, Minnesota final score
Minnie is 9-0, and had the upset of their generation over #4 PSU at home. They will be riding high all week and have a big let down in IC on Saturday. Remember how the Hawks played in Madison after blowing out OSU in '17? It will be like that. Iowa 37-12.
Correct Sir. A lot algorithms in play and additional data before Vegas releases the line to public
Or, Hawks could win big.
"No. 18 Iowa vs. No. 17 Minnesota
Winner: Iowa, 60.8 percent"
I would guess ESPN's 60.8% closely reflects Vegas's initial "-3". Just another way of predicting that appears close.
Then why comment?
I posted this Saturday night on the Husker Board.
I seriously think the value is on Iowa winning this game, so IMO I’d wait for the public to bet the line to Minnesota and take Iowa ML later in the week.
Only three games I truly want to win are; ISU, MINNESOTA & NEBRASKA!
Piss on that. Win them all.
Good luck, Saturday! One, I don’t want your team even angrier when we come to Kinnick in two weeks, but two ... it’d be hilarious to watch sky-high PJ lose to Iowa after bringing his program to a place they haven’t been in decades, knowing how obsessively they seem to hate you, lol.
Thought this was about game time temperature.
Kinnick is worth 6?
Shouldn't we? The Goofers really aren't good. Penn State, really, isnt good, neither is Michigan. We lose games out or spite and plain old shitty coaching. If they let our kids just play, we'll win by 20 points easy. If KFC keeps them bottled up, we'll lose by 20, it's as simple as that.
