VEGAS: Cyclones at 80-1 odds to win 2018 national title

Don’t waste your money on this one.

Immediately following North Carolina’s victory over Gonzaga to claim the national championship on Monday night, Las Vegas released its odds to win the prize in 2018.

Somehow, at 80-1, Iowa State is one of only 35 programs with 100-1 odds or better. I don’t really see how either. Iowa State just graduated 83 percent of its scoring from last season’s Round of 32 team that won a Big 12 Tournament championship.

There is still a lot of work to be done, as Steve Prohm still has four scholarships to fill between now and the season. Right now, Iowa State being a projected bubble team for next year is very optimistic – and probably unrealistic.

Add a Shakur Juiston and a few impact transfers to the mix and then we can have a conversation. But right now at this very moment, Iowa State is not a top 35 team heading into next season.
