We have a new Heisman Trophy favorite in the betting markets

To say that it's been a weird college football season so far is an understatement.

Ohio State, Clemson and Oklahoma stink. Penn State, Iowa and Oregon all look like playoff contenders. And the Heisman favorite Spencer Rattler has hardly looked the part early.

Because of it, we have a new Heisman favorite according to DraftKings Sportsbook - Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral.

Here is the new Top 10 according to DraftKings:

Matt Corral (+200)

Bryce Young (+225)

Spencer Rattler (+1600)

Desmond Ridder (+1800)

CJ Stroud (+1800)

Malik Willis (+2500)

Sam Howell (+2500) JT Daniels (+3000)

Treyvon Henderson (+3500)

CJ Verdell (+3500)

At the end of the day, Corral's ascent up the board isn't all that shocking.

Put simply, the guys that we thought would be great - Rattler, Sam Howell, DJ Uiagalelei - haven't been, and outside of Bryce Young, the young guys we thought might step up (Uiagalelei, CJ Stroud) really haven't either.

In the process, Corral has put up a monster first few weeks of the season, including Saturday where he had seven total touchdowns (four rushing, three passing) against Tulane. On the season, he has nine touchdowns without an interception, and is in the Top 10 nationally in passing yards and yards per pass.

Right now it feels like the question becomes, has Corral's value already peaked? The Rebels are actually off this week before playing Alabama in two weeks. If he has a really good game you think that the odds would only get worse if you're looking to bet him. On the flip side, if he plays poorly, you can potentially get him on a dip the week after.

Regardless, Corral is the leader in the clubhouse in the early Heisman race and we'll keep you updated as the odds change.
