Cy Hawk 2022 odds

The college game has spring football, so why not spring Cy-Hawk 2022 game football bets as well?

FanDuel Sportsbook in Iowa pinged PlayIA with some early lines for more than 80 college football games this fall. The potential bets cover 13 weeks of the college football season.

Let’s get right to the bread-and-butter. For now, FD offers point spreads for a six-pack of Iowa and Iowa State games.

Totals and prop bets will likely pop up closer to the kickoffs:

  • Sept. 10 — Iowa State +6 (-115) at Iowa -6 (-105)
  • Oct. 1 — Michigan -4 (-110) at Iowa +4 (-110)
  • Oct. 22 — Iowa +21 (-110) at Ohio State -21 (-110)
  • Oct. 27 — Oklahoma -4 (-115) at Iowa State +4 (-105)
  • Nov. 12 — Wisconsin -2 (-110) at Iowa +2 (-110)
  • Nov. 25 — Nebraska +3.5 (-115) at Iowa -3.5 (-105)

BetRivers, Unibet and Caesars have a handful of opening week games at their sportsbooks, but nothing for the Week 2 Cy-Hawk Game as of Monday. FanDuel and Caesars do have a line for the Aug. 27  Nebraska (-9.5 and -10.5 respectively) vs. Northwestern opener in Ireland.

Futures are easier to find for the Cy-Hawk teams.

As you might expect in college football, the odds are pretty long to see Iowa or Iowa State in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

  • Dec. 30 — Orange Bowl in Miami
  • Dec. 31 — The Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ and the Peach Bowl in Atlanta are the College Football Playoff semifinals. The Sugar Bowl in New Orleans also will be played on New Year’s Eve.
  • Jan. 2 — Cotton Bowl in Arlington, TX and Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.
  • The major bowls are a day later since New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday this year.
  • The CFP National Championship Game is Jan. 9, 2023 in Los Angeles.

PlayIA’s Jordan Hansen checked in with the Cy-Hawk camps earlier this year. Here’s an excerpt from his Iowa preview:

How does favored Iowa look ahead of the Cy-Hawk 2022 game?

Following a season that saw the Iowa football team make a surprise entrance into the Big Ten title game, hopes are high for the Hawkeyes to take a chance at a repeat appearance. The first step is Iowa spring practices.

Iowa returns 17 starters — including seven from its highly-touted defense — off a squad that reached double-digit wins for the second time in three years. The path back to the Big Ten Championship, however, toughens considerably this year.

The Hawkeyes get national title contenders Ohio State and Michigan during the regular season. Add that to the normal gauntlet of rivalry games against Iowa State and the usual suspects in the Big Ten West. Iowa gets:

  • Ohio State on the road
  • Michigan at home and
  • three of their trophy games at home, including against the Cyclones. Iowa has won six straight in the series over Iowa State.

Why is Iowa State a Cy-Hawk 2022 underdog?

Hansen had Iowa State analysis as well:

Easily the biggest win for the program during the offseason was simply retaining Matt Campbell. He will be entering his seventh year at Iowa State. A number of programs courted the head coach but he stayed put in Ames.

Campbell is 42-34 at Iowa State and had the Cyclones at No. 7 to enter the season. But losses to Iowa and Baylor derailed early hopes of contention for a playoff spot.

Standout wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson returns, as does defensive lineman Will McDonald IV and offensive lineman Trevor Downing. In all, 22 players who have started at least one game for the Cyclones return this year.

Hutchinson will likely be catching passes from Hunter Dekkers. The former four-star recruit out of Hawarden, Iowa has played sparingly since joining the Cyclones. He completed 20 of 36 passes for 193 yards, tossing two touchdowns and an interception last year. He also flashed running the ball, notching four carries for 61 yards and a rushing score.
