- Matt Corral is the +130 betting favorite for the Heisman Trophy race.
- Bryce Young is the second option with +200 odds.
- Desmond Ridder is the next closest on the odds board at +1500 with sportsbooks.
NEW YORK – Matt Corral took over as the betting favorite to win the Heisman Trophy last week and has since extended his lead over the field. However, his closest competitor also saw his odds shorten.
Matt Corral Extends Lead As Betting Favorite
Matt Corral is one of the biggest surprises this college football season. He’s compiled 997 passing yards, nine passing touchdowns, and no interceptions while adding 158 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. Despite having a BYE week, online gambling sites have made him a bigger favorite.
Matt Corral Heisman Odds
- After Week 2 +450
- After Week 3 +210
- After Week 4 +130
The biggest critique of Corral’s resume is that he’s only played one Power 5 team and has yet to face an SEC defense. However, that all changes this upcoming weekend as the Ole Miss Rebels will play the Alabama Crimson Tide. If he can somehow lead his team to a win, his odds will shorten drastically.
Bryce Young’s Odds Also Shorten
Bryce Young, the quarterback for Alabama, will have a huge opportunity to become the favorite for the Heisman Trophy this weekend. Young’s 1,124 yards, 15 touchdowns, and one interception have not been enough for college football betting sites but that could change soon.
Bryce Young Heisman Odds
- After Week 2 +325
- After Week 3 +230
- After Week 4 +200
Young will likely jump Corral in the race for the Heisman when the two play one another this week. If anyone is looking to bet on Young, now might be the last time to do so while his name still has betting value.
Desmond Ridder Leads Rest Of The Field
Last week, Desmond Ridder, Spencer Rattler, and C.J. Stroud were all set at +1800. Now, the three have seen line movement in all directions, while a new face has entered the conversation.
Heisman Winner Odds
- Desmond Ridder +1500
- Spencer Rattler +2200
- JT Daniels +2500
- C.J. Stroud +3300
Ridder’s odds improved despite not touching the field in a BYE week while Rattler’s odds dropped after yet another lackluster performance. Stroud missed his game due to injury and JT Daniels has now entered the conversation after the 62-0 beatdown of Vanderbilt.
Of the bunch, Ridder seems to be the one to see the most success as his team will have the easiest schedule and therefore will give him the best chance to put up big numbers.
