Bryce Young Overtakes Corral As Heisman Favorite After Week 5

  • Bryce Young sits as the EVEN money favorite after beating Matt Corral and the Ole Miss Rebels over the weekend.
  • Corral has +130 odds as the second choice behind Young for the award.
  • Desmond Ridder moved up to +1200 following his win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

NEW YORKBryce Young has once again become the Heisman favorite after beating the Ole Miss Rebels and Matt Corral. His odds still carry value but probably not for long.

Bryce Young Overtakes Matt Corral

Bryce Young and Matt Corral faced off against one another on Saturday as the Alabama Crimson Tide took on the Ole Miss Rebels. Young had the better game and earned a 42-21 victory. In response, online gambling sites have made Young the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

Heisman Trophy Odds

  • Bryce Young EVEN
  • Matt Corral +130

The interesting part of this wager is that Corral’s odds didn’t move from last week and have remained at +130. However, Young dropped from +200 to EVEN after his third ranked win of the season.

Being the quarterback on the No. 1 team in the country is a great way to win the Heisman and sports bettors should expect his odds to only get shorter on a week-to-week basis. Grab his odds while there’s still value to them.

The Rest Of The Field: Desmond Ridder Leads

The Heisman Trophy race has had the same handful of names at the top for the past couple of weeks now. After beating the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, college football betting sites made Desmond Ridder the clear third choice behind the two favorites.

Heisman Trophy Odds

  • Desmond Ridder +1200
  • Spencer Rattler +1800
  • JT Daniels +2000
  • CJ Stroud +2500

It seems as if the top options will be consistently in the conversation for the duration of the season. A win over a Top 10 team only moved Ridder from +1500 to +1200, which speaks to just how far ahead of the pack Young and Corral are.

However, the public narrative matters in subjective awards like these, and there is a case in which Ridder leading the Cincinnati Bearcats to the College Football Playoffs is enough to win over voters. The Bearcats’ remaining schedule isn’t too difficult and they should finish the season without a loss, but it’s still Young’s award to lose at this point.
