Hunter Dekkers Accused of Placing Bets on Iowa State Sports

Iowa State quarterback Hunter Dekkers has officially been accused of tampering with records related to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation as Dekkers allegedly placed bets on the Iowa State Cyclones.

The report states that Dekkers is accused of placing 26 different wages down on Iowa State related sporting events, including a game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in 2021 that Dekkers did not play in as a sophomore.


The initial report comes from Travis Hines and Randy Peterson of the Des Moines Register which states that a DraftKings account connected to Hunter Dekkers placed 366 bets worth more than $2,799.

While this report has been long rumored, the Cyclones quarterback is in hot water as he is facing permanent loss of eligibility following the recent update to the NCAA’s policy on sports gambling.

Dekkers started all of the Cyclones games last season and totaled 302 completions, 3044 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, and a completion percentage of 66.1%. While Dekkers is facing some serious charges and accusations from the Story County Attorney’s Office, the official details are still in the process of being sorted out.

Iowa State is coming off of its worst season to date under head coach Matt Campbell, and with a new season ahead, they look to bounce back against UNI on September 2nd.
