Vegas Odds - Texas Tech vs Iowa State

A look at the match ups this week around the conference and in the Top 25

Week 5 Recap

Well, we were bound to have a bad week. With 19 games to pick, nobody went over .500, which some see as a standard to attempt and reach. Everyone picked 8 or 9 games correctly, with only 16 points separating the top and bottom scores. With fewer games to pick now, the first few weeks will play a more important role as more points were possible. First, a look at the overall standings, with all the weeks included, as the official score on Fox Sports drops the 2 lowest weeks.

Everyone had way more faith in Tech being able to cover the spread than what happened, and Ryan and Drew, who had been doing rather well went a combined 1-9. Hopefully this week goes better for everyone. There are 21 games to pick from this week, including 3 games with a spread of over 33 points.
