Cyclones now favored vs. NDSU


AMES — A few weeks ago, the offshore gambling website 5 Dimesreleased an early betting line for Iowa State’s Aug. 30 season opener vs. the three-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State Bison. It wasn’t pretty. 5 Dimes tabbed Iowa State as a two-point underdog to the program that has won four straight games vs. FBS opponents. 

On Monday however, the line changed. Iowa State, who went 3-9 a season ago, is now a 3.5 point favorite. 

Is this largely because the money is currently swaying toward Iowa State? Perhaps, but one Vegas insider told me that probably isn’t entirely the case. Nationally, this won’t be a heavily betted game. Money probably is on the Cyclones right now but according to my guy, it was probably a faulty line to begin with. 

Regardless, the experts still believe this game is too close to call.
