Heisman Trophy Odds Update (as of 9/23/10)

Heisman Trophy Update (as of 9/23/10)

Here at Bang the Book, we are beginning our update for the Heisman Trophy odds on a weekly basis. Here is our first look through three weeks of play at some of the favorites as well as the odds to win the 2010 Heisman Trophy that can be found below…

Denard Robinson, Michigan Wolverines: Robinson is now the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy in spite of the fact that the Wolverines didn’t put forth their best effort in the world last weekend. The offense was good for 525 yards and 42 points in spite of the fact that Michigan barely hung on to a 42-37 victory over the UMass Minutemen. Robinson was stellar once again even though he was picked off on the day. Relatively speaking, it was a slow game for Robinson who “only” rushed for 104 yards and threw for 241 on the day. Robinson still leads the nation in rushing with 559 yards for the year and is 34th in the land in passing with 671 passing yards as well.

Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State Buckeyes: Three games up, three games down for the Buckeyes. Ohio State is 3-0 ATS and 3-0 for ‘overs’ on the season, and it has done virtually all of the work for the ‘total’ on its own. Pryor has been fantastic so far this year, and in spite of the fact that his completion percentage is a relatively low 63.0 percent, he is clearly proving that he was worth the hype from three years ago when HC Jim Tressel successfully landed him. Pryor threw two picks against the Ohio Bobcats last week, but it was no real concern. He completed 22-of-29 passes for 235 yards and two scores, and he rushed for 35 yards and another TD. Better will be on the horizon for OSU and its signal caller, which is why he is still considered the second favorite for the Heisman Trophy.

Mark Ingram, Alabama Crimson Tide: Welcome back, Mark Ingram! The Alabama running back ended up missing the first two weeks of the regular season, and he came back with a vengeance. We’re not all that excited about rumbling past the Duke Blue Devils, but nine carries for 151 yards and a TD in just over a quarter’s worth of work is incredibly impressive. If Ingram ends up running wild on the Arkansas Razorbacks, he’ll be the favorite to go back to back for the second time in the history of college football.

Kellen Moore, Boise State Broncos: Moore did absolutely nothing to hurt himself in the Heisman Trophy campaign last week, but he has one horrible problem right now. He plays Boise State’s schedule. Moore isn’t one of these signal callers that is going to be ready for the pros, so this is probably his last stand in college. However, beating up Wyoming and throwing for 370 yards and two scores just isn’t going to compare to some of the bigger efforts against big teams in nationally televised games. This will be his best chance to shine this week against Oregon State, but anything short of a 400+ yard effort and probably four or five scores will make Moore nothing but a bridesmaid for the rest of the year for the Heisman Trophy.

Ryan Mallett, Arkansas Razorbacks: If you ever wanted to take a stab on Mallett, this would be the week to do it. If he doesn’t come forth with a good game or an upset against the Alabama Crimson Tide, he can kiss his Heisman Trophy hopes goodbye. If he ends up doing it all and pulling the upset, he’s immediately going to become the favorite. Last week was a significant victory for the Hogs and for Mallett. His game winning touchdown pass to WR Greg Childs on the road Between the Hedges in Georgia could have been a Heisman Trophy signature play.

Andrew Luck, Stanford Cardinal: Luck is sort of in the same boat right now that Mallett is in. He has one of his biggest games of the year this week in a nationally televised battle against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and he is coming off of a statistically phenomenal game. Luck rushed for 69 yards and a score and completed 17-of-23 passes for 207 yards with four scores and no blunders. Dropping a 68-24 victory on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons was fantastic. Luck’s Heisman odds could be on the move this week with a big win in front of the eyes of Touchdown Jesus.
