Iowa State quarterback Hunter Dekkers is being accused of betting on football games. A criminal complaint was filed against the quarterback charging him with tampering with records related to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation’s probe into sports gambling.  

Dekkers is accused of placing 26 wagers on Iowa State sporting events, including the 2021 football game against Oklahoma State when he was a sophomore backup quarterback, according to the complaint, filed in Iowa District Court for Story County. Dekkers did not play in that game, but still placed the bet.  

The report says that he had a DraftKings account that completed approximately 366 mobile/online sports wagers totaling “over $2,799.”  

Dekkers was a starting quarterback for the Cyclones last year. He could face permanent loss of eligibility under NCAA guidelines that prohibit athletes from wagering on their own games or other sports at their own schools.
