Iowa State Cyclones

The Iowa State Cyclones were a major surprise as year ago as they made it all the way to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Head coach Steve Prohm did an outstanding job taking over for Fred Hoiberg and Iowa State was excellent straight up and decent against the spread.

The Cyclones will have to replace Georges Niang who was the leading scorer last season. Iowa State will also miss Abdel Nader who averaged nearly 13 points per game.

The Cyclones brought in Merrill Holden from Louisiana Tech who should take over as the defensive stopper in place of Niang. The Cyclones also added Donovan Jackson who should be a key contributor in the backcourt.

Iowa State also brought in Nick Weiler-Babb, a transfer from Arkansas, Darrell Bowie, a transfer from Northern Illinois, and Cameron Lard.

Iowa State does return Monte Morris who averaged nearly 14 points per game last season. They also have Naz Mitrou-Long who is coming back from hip surgery.

2016-2017 Iowa State Cyclones Betting

The Cyclones are going to be good again this season and they may go under the radar a bit more which might make them a better team to bet on. They will need some other players to step up behind Morris including Matt Thomas and Deonte Burton. If those two players can help out Morris then Iowa State should be a contender in the Big 12 this season.

Iowa State Cyclones Picks

The Cyclones should be a team to reckon with in the Big 12 again in 2016-2017 but they may have a hard time matching last year’s NCAA Tournament run. Iowa State is well coached and they have enough returning talent to finish in the upper half of the Big 12 and make the NCAA Tournament once again.
