Iowa State Cyclones Odds, Schedule, Bet Types, & Team Stats

Iowa State had one of the program’s most successful seasons ever in 2020. The Cyclones went 9-3, winning the Fiesta Bowl and placing top-10 in the final AP and College Football Playoff polls. With its win total set at 9.5 and the second-best odds to win the Big 12, Iowa State might just be ready to exceed what was a very good 2020.

It certainly has some of the pieces needed to make a run at the CFP. Quarterback Brock Purdy threw for 2,750 yards and 19 touchdowns a year ago while running for five more scores. This will be Purdy’s third season starting at ISU and he’ll also have Breece Hall in the backfield. Hall finished top-10 in Heisman voting after racking up 1,572 rushing yards and 23 total touchdowns.

Wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson was the Big 12’s offensive newcomer of the year and will look to build off a 64-catch, 771-yard campaign from his first season in Ames. Tight end Charlie Kolar is also back after an All-America season in which he hauled in 44 passes for 591 yards and seven touchdowns.

Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Mike Rose will be a force on that side of the ball after making 99 tackles (10.5 for loss) with five interceptions and 1.5 sacks in 2020. Look for Will McDonald IV to possibly get more snaps as well. The defensive lineman had 10.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss in the Cyclones’ rotation. Iowa State begins its season on September 4 with a home game against Northern Iowa.

Betting on the Iowa State Cyclones

Iowa State Cyclones Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Cyclones went 8-3 overall in the regular season, but were slightly worse against the spread at 6-5. Iowa State’s eight wins came by an average of 18.4 points. Here’s an example:

  • Iowa State -2.5 (-110)
  • Texas +2.5 (-110)

In this situation, Iowa State is favored by 2.5 points against Texas. If the Cyclones win the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on Iowa State would come with a payout of $90.91. If the Longhorns won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

Iowa State Cyclones Moneylines

Iowa State dropped its season opener in 2020 before putting together winning streaks of three and five games, making it one of the better picks in college football on the moneyline, which is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:

The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Iowa State the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Cyclones odds would mean every $160 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Oklahoma moneyline was set at +180, meaning a $100 wager would profit $180.

Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet on Iowa State’s moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, ISU would need to win by three points for that bet to be successful. The risk may be greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Iowa State Cyclones Over/Unders

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say Iowa State plays Oklahoma State and the over/under is set at 70 points. A wager on the over would require the Cyclones and Cowboys to score 71 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 69 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 70 points scored.

In 2020, Iowa State averaged 32.9 points and allowed just 21.4 points. The Cyclones hit the over in just 40% of their games last season.

Iowa State Cyclones Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out an example below:

  • Breece Hall 2021 rushing yards: 1,2500.5

Iowa State Cyclones Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Iowa State Cyclones odds to win the Big 12
  • Iowa State Cyclones odds to reach the College Football Playoff
  • Iowa State Cyclones odds to win the College Football Playoff
  • Breece Hall’s odds to win the Heisman Trophy

If you think the Cyclones can make their first Playoff appearance or even win the CFP championship, this is the place to bet. These types of bets are called futures, and they're just wagers on things that settle at the end of the year. For a full list of college football futures, click or tap here.
