I'll take the under... its a win/win.

Either I win money, or the Hogs win more games and I'm happy either way. Fool Proof.

So is Vegas predicting we win 5 games, or is Vegas throwing out 5 games as their number to get people to bet?
Their goal id to set the # just like a point spread to get the same amount bet on both sides. They have zero risk and make the 10% juice.

Either 5 or 6 seems like an odd spot to land.  I think 5.5 is the number that makes sense.  Unless they're moving the line back and forth to gin up some action on both sides.  Seems like there might be a lot of push money at either 5 or 6.

Good point, must have been too much at 5 when they went 5.5, o/u at 5 (meaning your betting 4 wins or 6 wins) seems primed to draw the over. Has the payouts changed on either side?

Vegas doesn’t always get it right folks. They had us at 5 1/2 wins last year. This team will win 6 games this season. We’re not gonna set the world on fire, but the roster is in far better shape than this time last year.

I know, but guys like Grizzly seem to think Vegas saying 5 games is Vegas' prediction for our season.

One thing's for certain.  Most posters who would be satisfied with 5 wins today, won't be satisfied with 7 losses at the end of the year.  It may seem like progress today, but it will feel like a failure in December.

It depends if a 7th loss is one like we should have won, like ole miss or CSU
