Dwayne Haskins Heisman Odds Fall After a Career Passing Performance

Haskins Heisman Odds Fell

Dwayne Haskins had the best game of his college career on Saturday.

The first-year starter completed 75 percent of his passes, throwing for 455 yards – just three shy of the single game school record – and tying a school record with six touchdown passes.

Yet his Heisman Trophy odds sunk.

Haskins entered the week with 15/4 (+375) odds to win the Heisman, but following his career performance his odds fell to 9/2 (+450). Though he did overtake Kyler Murray as the second-best odds behind only Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, who has 2/3 odds (-150).

The reason for the drop likely has little to do with Haskins' performance and more to do with Tagovailoa's dominance, as he's the runaway favorite, seeing his odds increase from 10/11 (-110) last week to 2/3 (-150) this week.

Ohio State's national championship odds also took a hit, dropping from 11/2 (+550) last week to 15/2 (+750) this week.

The Buckeyes have the same odds as Clemson and Georgia with Alabama remaining the runaway favorite, with 5/7 (-140) odds to win the national title, up from 4/5 (-120) last week. 

All odds are from Bovada.lv.
