NCAA Football Betting Odds
Iowa State Cyclones: -1
Tulsa Golden Hurricane: +1
Iowa State's 6-6 year this year might have been a bit misleading. The club was most certainly the second worst team in the Big XII this year, but that was still good enough to get to a bowl game thanks to a poor out of conference slate. Still, it took a 3-6 record in a very good conference to get here, so this is a team that should not be overlooked for your NCAA football betting picks.
It's going to be up to QB Sam Richardson to get the job done for ISU. The frosh came on late in the season when all of the Cyclones were failing miserably at quarterback, and he helped put 51 up on the Kansas Jayhawks and 24 on the West Virginia Mountaineers. A true dual threat, Richardson has thrown for 412 yards and seven TDs as a passer and has 187 yards and a TD as a rusher.
The Cyclones were outdone by at least 200 yards four times this year in conference play, including twice in consecutive weeks by at least 300 yards against the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners, something that has to make most think twice before pulling the trigger on their NCAA football bowl picks.
There were some bumps along the road, but in the end, the Golden Hurricane got the job done and won Conference USA. The 10-win season was important for Tulsa this year, especially considering how much turnover there was from last season's team.
Just as it is some discouraging about how badly Iowa State played at times this year, it has to be considered encouraging to think that Tulsa outgained its foes by an average of 217.0 yards per game in its last four, including two games in which it made for successful NCAA football wagering picks against the UCF Knights, who were clearly the second best team in C-USA this year.
Free Prediction – This is the only bowl game this year that features a rematch of a game we already saw this season. Way back in Week 1, Iowa State was a two-point home underdog and won 38-23, but this time around, we expect to see a measure of revenge. Go with the Conference USA champs to get some payback on the team that they opened up their year against with one of just their three losses on the season.
