C.J. Stroud And Bijan Robinson Close Gap In Heisman Trophy Odds

  • Bryce Young (+175) and Matt Corral (+200) still lead the field in Heisman Trophy odds.
  • C.J. Stroud now has (+700) odds as the third betting choice while Bijan Robinson is at (+1000) as the fourth option.
  • Spencer Rattler has seemingly fallen out of contention after potentially losing his starting position.

NEW YORK – The Heisman Trophy Race got a lot more interesting after Week 6 as Bryce Young and Matt Corral have started to lose their lead over the field that includes C.J. Stroud and Bijan Robinson.

C.J. Stroud And Bijan Robinson Closing The Gap

Matt Corral and Bryce Young have been the two favorites to win the Heisman Trophy for the last few weeks. While they remain as the players with the shortest odds, this is the closest the field has been to overtaking them since they became the top options.

  • Bryce Young +175
  • Matt Corral +200
  • CJ Stroud +700
  • Bijan Robinson +1000

The online gambling sites had Young at EVEN odds last week with Corral close behind at (+130). C.J. Stroud made a huge jump from (+2500) while Bijan Robinson moved up from his (+3300) listing. Stroud had his second consecutive 330+ yard and five-touchdown performance which resulted in the line movement.

Robinson has run for 125+ yards in each of his last four games and has found the endzone in every game of the season, while impressive, there’s still a lot of ground to make up for in regards to the quarterbacks ahead of him. Those betting on college football should be hesitant on taking action on Robinson this early in the season.

The Rest Of The Field: Where Is Brennan Armstrong?

Outside of the top four options, the odds get longer quickly. Some familiar names like Desmond Ridder remain in the conversation while others, such as Spencer Rattler, have fallen out completely.

  • Desmond Ridder +1400
  • Kenneth Walker +1400
  • Sean Clifford +2500
  • Jayden Daniels +2800
  • TreVeyon Henderson +2800
  • Casey Thompson +3300
  • Spencer Rattler +3500

Among all of these names, one that is missing is Brennan Armstrong, the quarterback for the Virginia Cavaliers. Armstrong is leading the country in passing yards with 2,460 (410.0 yards per game) and is seventh in passing touchdowns with 17.

It’s very possible that his numbers will start to regress, but for the time being he seems at least worthy of being in the Heisman conversation but sportsbooks do not seem to have him listed on the odds boards yet.
