Early Line Analysis

There is a VALUE ALERT placed on this early Cylones line of +7 - Bet it Here Now to Lock in

The early line on this game was Hawkeyes -7 and subject to change if not locked in.

Without counting a home field advantage, Iowa would be a -2.5 favorite only.  With the home field advantage, this one should be a PICK'EM.  In any event, there is a pretty significant early overlay.  

Keep in mind that a lot can happen between now and the 8th of September.  Also early Betting Power Ratings that are used to determine said line are typically less accurate as they are mainly based on the previous season's performance.


The top two running backs have to be replaced, as do all three starting linebackers and an All-America cornerback.  A soft schedule might help Iowa maintain a winning record but this game will be a challenge.


This program appears poised to continue playing well in 2018, thus, their current College Football Betting Power Rating should be on target, if not a bit understated.  This is because the 2018 version of the Cyclones should be deeper than last year's team.
