Heisman race down to three

For those examining the Heisman Trophy market, last weekend had the look and feel of Saturday at a golf tournament.

It was moving day. 

There’s now some separation between the top section of the leaderboards and the rest of the pack. 

All it took was a couple of movers to alter the race. 

Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker III ran past Michigan defenders and into a spot among the top four candidates. Walker’s transition from intriguing midlevel status to the platinum club happened just about the same time Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett surprisingly dropped a home game to Miami. 

That loss in effect ends the feel-good talk about the Panthers and the passing exploits of Pickett. 

Walker firmly in, Pickett moving out. 

That gives us a leaderboard featuring Bryce Young (+ 190 BetMGM, + 180 DraftKings), CJ Stroud (+ 450 BetMGM and DraftKings), Walker (+ 500 BetMGM and DraftKings) and Matt Corral (+ 500 DraftKings, + 275 BetMGM). 

That’s four names, but let’s remove Corral from the equation. 

During the last three weeks, his Mississippi squad was one of the most discussed teams in the country. That attention had zero impact on the market, and his odds remained stagnant.
