Iowa State will host Louisiana Lafayette this Saturday with kick off set for 12pm est. The Cyclones opened as -10 point favorites and have risen to -11.5 as of this writing on Tuesday. The total is 57.

This game has plenty of intrigue for a week 1 contest. It pits two teams off successful 2019 seasons with both legitimate contenders for conference titles in 2020.

Iowa State 4 Points from 10 Wins in 2019

Iowa State was 7-6 a year ago but 3 of their losses came by two points or less. They were competitive every time they took the field and return plenty of talent on both sides of the ball in 2020.

Timing could be the key for the cyclones as they catch most of the rest of the Big 12 in a rebuilding phase. The pieces are definitely in place for a run at the Big 12 title so getting off on the right foot Saturday is crucial.

If only it were that easy. Louisiana Lafayette comes in off of an 11-3 season with a blistering offense that produced 37 points per game. Their defense performed admirably as well.

La Laff a Live Dog

La Laff went toe to toe with Miss State in their 1st game a year ago. They lost by 10 in a game that was close the whole way and a 7 point game with under a minute to go. That’s despite the fact that La Laff played sloppy at times and turned the ball over several times.

If we run this game through our model using only thelast 7 games of last season, we come up with a predicted final score of Iowa State 29 LA Laff 26.

We’re going to grab the +11.5 points in this one, thinking La Laff can make this interesting. Louisiana Lafayette +11.5
