Just came back from Vegas this week.
ISU-hawk game was one of 111 early college football lines that was put out by the Golden Nugget in early June.
The line at that time was iowa -5.
Lines as of Wednesday evening.
Golden Nugget iowa -5
MGM properties (Caesars, Bally's, Paris, MGM Grand) iowa -5
William Hill (the old Leroy's sportsbooks that are in a bunch of small properties) iowa -4.5.
Many places opened at iowa -3.5 this week, so most of the early money was coming in on iowa.
What does that mean?
It means that the play of week one means nothing in the minds of the early week sports bettors.
Cowboys +3.5 W
Cyclones +5 (TBD)
West Virginia to win the Big 12 at 4 to 1 (TBD)
West Virginia to win the BCS Championship at 40 to 1 (TBD)
