NCAAF: Alabama’s Bryce Young returns to role as Heisman favorite
No. 1 Alabama defeated Southeastern Conference foe Ole Miss 42-21 on Saturday, and the big win catapulted Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young back to the role of Heisman Trophy favorite.
Matt Corral, the quarterback of the No. 12 Rebels, entered the game as the favorite. But that all changed after Alabama took a commanding 28-0 halftime lead on the way to victory.
On Sunday, sports books DraftKings, BetMGM and PointsBet all offered Young at +120 odds, up from +175, +185 and +250, respectively, a week ago.
Against Ole Miss, Young was 20-of-26 passing for 241 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.
In the loss, Corral completed 21 of 29 attempts, tallying 213 yards and a touchdown.
The odds for Corral lengthened to +200 at DraftKings, +225 at BetMGM and +200 at PointsBet.
Last Sunday, Corral was listed at +150 at both DraftKings and PointsBet, with BetMGM offering him at +160.
The closest competitor in Heisman odds is Desmond Ridder. The Cincinnati quarterback moved to +1200 at DrafKings and BetMGM and to +1500 at PointsBet after the No. 7 Bearcats toppled No. 9 Notre Dame 24-13.
Ridder finished the game 19-of-32 passing for 297 yards with two touchdowns. He also scored one rushing TD.
