Iowa State +16.5 @ Carbon Sportsbook

Texas Tech Mascot

A soft line here for sure on the college football betting lines. Iowa State is getting 16.5 in this game, and I’m really not all that sure why. Remember that QB Baker Mayfield, who was the man that stepped in and played well from Week 1 as a walk-on freshman suffered a leg injury last week. Don’t expect to see him play in this one, and if that’s the case, either QB Michael Brewer will see his first snaps of the year, or the much more ineffective QB Davis Webb will be the man that Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury calls upon. Either way, I’m not wild about the situation for T-Tech, especially laying 16.5 points.

Iowa State is playing better offensive ball with every single game, and QB Sam Richardson is really the man at the center of it all. The Cyclones have picked up at least 179 rushing yards in two straight games, and that’s the type of production they’re going to need on the ground in this one if they are going to cover. The fact that I’ve got so many points on my side when Iowa State has only allowed 15.5 points per game in the last two meetings against the Red Raiders is a great thing, and it is made a winning play with Mayfield out of the fold. Play Iowa State +16.5
