2022 Heisman Trophy Watch: How the Race Shapes up Starting November
As November approaches, the 2022 Heisman Trophy Watch continues. Who are we watching this week? Who is trending up or down?
Every Monday, at Gambling.com, we will look at some prominent names while maybe finding a gem or two to help in your college football betting. Here is the latest.
Bryce Young - Alabama Crimson Tide (+3000 on DraftKings)
Young was off on Saturday, enjoying the bye. This Saturday, Alabama travels to LSU to face the Tigers. If Young is going to make a move in the Heisman race, this is the time.
C.J. Stroud - Ohio State Buckeyes (+190 on DraftKings)
Stroud seemed off on quite a few throws on Saturday against Penn State. Ohio State rallied late, but this game was far closer than it looked. Stroud did pass for 354 yards but only one touchdown on the national stage. Fortunately, most of November is easy for the Buckeyes until “The Game” against Michigan on Nov. 26.
Caleb Williams - USC Fighting Trojans (+1500 on DraftKings)
Caleb Williams did the expected on Saturday against Arizona. He threw for 411 yards and five touchdowns against one of the worst defenses in the Pac-12 as USC held on for a 45-37 win. Next is California, which should be another chance to pad those numbers.
Max Duggan - TCU Horned Frogs (+3000 on DraftKings)
Duggan did not run the ball well again this week, but his late fourth-quarter touchdown on fourth-and-inches was different. He tossed three touchdown passes and one interception. He threw for 341 yards against one of the worst defenses in the nation in West Virginia.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson - UCLA Bruins (+15000 on DraftKings)
Thompson-Robinson was off again versus Stanford, but Zach Charbonnet ran for nearly 200 yards and three scores. Thompson-Robinson passed for just 199 yards and added 52 on the ground with one touchdown. Between Oregon and Stanford, that may be it for his Heisman chances.
Hendon Hooker - Tennessee Volunteers (-110 on DraftKings)
Hooker was efficient and surgical in a rout over Kentucky. He tossed only 25 passes but completed 19 for 245 yards. He passed for three scores and ran for one. Tennessee faces Georgia this Saturday.
Blake Corum - Michigan Wolverines (+1500 on DraftKings)
Corum was the workhorse of the week, racking up 33 carries on Michigan State. He delivered 177 yards, including a touchdown. Next up is Rutgers for the talented running back from Michigan.
Bo Nix - Oregon (+2500 on DraftKings)
Nix piled up the numbers on Saturday against a hapless California defense. Yes, he made two miscues. Nix ran for three touchdowns and passed for three. He totaled 412 yards on the air and 59 via the ground. Nix sees Colorado this week
Jalin Hyatt - Tennessee (+3000 on DraftKings)
Hyatt of Tennessee has replaced Jahmyr Gibbs of Alabama. The Volunteer’s wide receiver keeps adding to his numbers. Against Kentucky, Hyatt caught five passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns. He has 582 yards and 11 touchdowns in the last four weeks. Can he show up on the big stage again versus Georgia?
Sam Hartman - Wake Forest (+20000 on DraftKings)
Maybe this is the D.J. Uiagalelei cursed slot. After Uiagalelei fell apart against Syracuse, Hartman unraveled against Lousiville. What resulted was pure horror. Hartman was also benched. He threw for one touchdown but had three interceptions. Also, Hartman lost three fumbles. He was overwhelmed as Louisville scored five times in the third quarter ending Hartman’s faint Heisman hopes.
