2021 Heisman Trophy Odds
If you look at the betting odds, it's safe to say that a quarterback will capture this year's Heisman Trophy but the race continues to get tighter.
Alabama QB Bryce Young and Ole Miss QB Matt Corral are the co-favorites at +200 with BetMGM.
Young and the Crimson Tide bounced back from their first loss of the season to pound Mississippi State, 49-9 in Starkville. The Alabama quarterback torched the Bulldogs' defense for 348 yards and four touchdown passes in the win.
Corral's passing numbers against Tennessee weren't outstanding (231 yards), but the Ole Miss signal-caller took his game to the ground and rushed for 195 yards in a 31-26 triumph against the Volunteers.
Listed below are the top betting contenders for the 2021 Heisman Trophy.

How to Read the Heisman Trophy Odds
Quarterback Spencer Rattler of Oklahoma was tabbed the preseason Heisman Trophy betting favorite at 6/1 odds (Bet $100 to win $600) per BetMGM.
That's always been a common trend with this award, but 2020 saw things play out differently. Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith surged late in the season and won the award, with some bettors cashing tickets as high as 50/1 odds.
The 2021 Heisman Trophy finalists will be announced on Dec. 6, 2021, and the ceremony is expected to take place on Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021.
