Can't Bet the Hawkeyes From Iowa

There is good news and bad news for those betting sports from Iowa.  The good news is you will soon be able to place bets with in-state apps.  The bad news is that only licensed offshore sportsbooks will be taking wagers on your beloved Hawkeyes.  In-state operators are prohibited from doing so.

*True dime line in Baseball up to -170

Iowa recently amended its state law to permit operates licensing within the state, however, that language contained within that law prohibits taking bets on Iowa school teams, including the Hawkeyes and Cyclones.

The Hawkeyes are favored to win 8 or more regular season games in 2019, priced at -140.

They were listed at 150/1 odds to win the College Football Championship. 

AthlonSports, while acknowledging Iowa lost some key components during the offseason, believes they have plenty of top players to make this team competitive.  Athlon ranks the Iowa Hawkeyes 18th in the nation.

Iowa lost plenty of star power from last season, including two of the top tight ends in the country. But with a proven quarterback, three experienced running backs, two emerging stars at offensive tackle and maybe the top pass rusher in college football, the cupboard hardly is bare. And that's good, because the schedule is brutal, with road games at Iowa State, Michigan, Northwestern, Wisconsin, and Nebraska.

A 16th winning season under Ferentz seems well within reach, but the schedule might keep Iowa from winning the Big Ten West Division.
