Sportsbooks make Ole Miss QB Matt Corral new Heisman favorite
Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral is now the Heisman Trophy favorite, surpassing his Alabama counterpart Bryce Young ahead of next weekend’s Southeastern Conference showdown between the teams.
The Rebels were idle Saturday.
Corral is listed at +150 at both DraftKings and PointsBet, with BetMGM offering him at +160.
Alabama manhandled Southern Mississippi 63-14 on Saturday, and Young was 20-of-22 passing for 313 yards with five touchdowns and an interception.
After that performance, his odds moved to +175 at DraftKings, +185 at BetMGM and +250 at PointsBet,
Of course, the two could flip-flop positions after Saturday’s game in Tuscaloosa.
Spencer Rattler, the preseason favorite, saw his odds lengthen again after Oklahoma’s ugly, last-second win over West Virginia. Oklahoma fell from No. 4 to No. 6 in the AP Top 25 poll as Rattler was 26-of-36 passing for 256 yards with one touchdown and an interception.
In the Heisman odds, he fell to +2500 at DraftKings, BetMGM and Points Bet.
After last weekend’s 23-16 win over Nebraska, Rattler was listed at +1500 at Points Bet, +1100 at BetMGM and +1400 at DraftKings.
Entering the Heisman picture this week is Desmond Ridder, the quarterback of No. 7 Cincinnati. The Bearcats were idle Saturday and travel to No. 9 Notre Dame next weekend.
DraftKings has Ridder at +1500, BetMGM at +1600 and +2000 at PointsBet.
