    2011 Cyclone Football Odds

    Last summer I wrote this column “Outside the Men’s Room: C’mon, what are the odds?!?!” for CycloneFanatic.com with the odds making help of Iowa’s favorite bookie, Ken Miller. I will be embarking down this road once again in due time, but first let’s review the results. (If you want to cut through all of the psycho-babble from yours truly, the odds without the commentary are below):

    2010 Odds by Ken Miller

    • Iowa State will score at least two touchdowns against Iowa…2-1. NO, 1.
    • Iowa State will score more points against its non-conference opponents that it gives up against Oklahoma and Texas combined…2-1. YES, 88-73.
    • Jack Trice Stadium will average more than 50,000 in attendance for the season…3-1. NO, 45,395
    • Alexander Robinson will rush for more than 1,500 yards…4-1. NO, 946
    • Iowa State will beat Nebraska…20-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win 5 games…10-1. YES
    • Iowa State will beat Iowa for the first time since 2007…15-1. NO
    • Iowa State will be bowl eligible for the second straight year and win six games…20-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win a bowl game for a second straight year for the first time in school history…30-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win seven games…40-1. NO
    • Iowa State will beat Texas in Austin…75-1. YES
    • Iowa State will beat Oklahoma in Norman…80-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win eight games…80-1. NO
    • Alexander Robinson will win the Heisman Trophy…100-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win the Big 12 North…200-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win the Big 12…500-1. NO
    • Iowa State will qualify for a BCS game with an at-large bid…1000-1. NO
    • Iowa State will win a BCS game…1,250-1. NO
    I have a decent list already started for Ken, but are there any odds regarding 2011 that you'd like to see for me when I submit my list to him?

    Interesting that the odds were better to win the B12 than they were to get an at large BCS bid. Kinda gives you an idea of the public opinion of ISU.

    I think you might have to put an actual attendance number on this question since we can sell almost an unlimited number of hillside seats.

    I like the one on the odds ISU starts 3-0.

    What about beating Texas?

    Road wins in Conference?

    Re: 2011 Cyclone Football Odds

    Some good ones so far...here are a few that I have down:

    Odds to shutout UNI
    Odds the Cyclone QB's will combine to throw more TD's than INT's
    O/U on TD's scored against Iowa
    O/U on points scored by Okie State against ISU

    Keep 'em coming.
