TCU Seeks Bowl Berth at Inconsistent Iowa State – College Football Betting

TCU Horned Frogs vs. Iowa State Cyclones Betting Information, odds and picks

Last season Iowa State ambushed the Big 12 Conference as a surprise team.  Counter to that is a 2021 campaign in which the Cyclones wilted under the hot lights of high College football betting expectations.  Certainly, the Cyclones have a talented team.  Running back Breece Hall is an All-American candidate. In comparison, quarterback Brock Purdy is among the best in the Big 12.  Wins over Oklahoma State and Texas drew national attention.  But losses to Texas Tech and West Virginia boggle the mind.  This week TCU needs one more win to become bowl eligible.
