The Heisman Race right now is a very interesting watch.

Michael Penix Jr#7 Washington (5-0)+220
Caleb Williams#10 USC (6-0)+250
Bo Nix#8 Oregon (5-0)+600

What makes the Heisman such an entertaining conversation this week is that Michael Penix Jr and his Washington Huskies host Bo Nix and the Oregon Ducks this weekend.

Michael Penix Jr +220 To Win Heisman

Penix Jr and his Huskies are -2.5 favorites at home vs #8 Oregon.

The Washington QB has a passing yards prop total set at 349.5 yards with FanDuel, which sounds kind of ridiculous.

Also ridiculous is that Penix has gone over that total in 4 of his 5 games this year and has thrown for over 400+ yards in each of Washington’s last three games.

Caleb Williams +250 To Win Heisman

Williams is the defending Heisman Champ and was the betting favorite until a recent disappointing performance against Arizona dropped him behind Penix Jr.

USC is a +2.5 underdog on the road this week against Notre Dame. Last time out, the Trojans were very fortunate to beat Arizona in overtime.

Williams has a passing yards prop total set at 298.5 at FanDuel.

Last week against Arizona, the future NFL first-overall pick needed OT to hit 200 passing yards. Williams threw for more than 400 yards against Colorado the week before the Arizona game.

Bo Nix +600 To Win Heisman

Bo Nix leads his Oregon Ducks into a hostile environment to take on a very good Washington Huskies team.

Nix and his 8th-ranked Ducks are +2.5 dogs, the first time they have been underdogs this year.

The 5th-year Senior QB has a passing yards prop total set at 282.5 yards.

Nix has gone over that total in three of five games this season but only once in his last three games.

Heisman Shake Up

There is going to be a shake-up in the Heisman odds after this week. Penix Jr, Williams, and Nix will all see their odds move depending on how their games play out.

If you have a feel for how those games might play out, you might also have an advantage in betting on the Heisman winner this year.

For those who think Bo Nix and his Oregon Ducks will knock off Washington this week, getting Nix at +600 to win the Heisman might interest you.

Same Game Parlay Alert!

When it comes to early kick-off games this Saturday, most of us will be watching Oregon vs Washington.

This game has a total set at 66.5 – meaning expectations are high for both teams to light up the scoreboard.

There is so much riding on this Week 7 contest I suspect that both teams will be more prepared, focused, and excited to perform than usual.

With Pac-12 supremacy at stake and both QBs putting their Heisman hopes on the line, we will see a pair of offenses performing to their highest level.

  • Penix Jr. OVER his passing yards total.
  • Nix OVER his passing yards total.
  • Final Score OVER 66.5 points

Our game script heading into this one is offense, offense with a side of more offense.

Even More Oregon vs Washington

Many fans have been waiting for this type of college football game all season.

Two great teams, expected to put up huge offensive numbers with conference standings on the line.

For those reasons and more – FanDuel has provided us with some Game Specials, allowing us to play on some interesting props.

Either Nix or Penix Jr To Throw For 500+ Passing Yards (+1200 Odds)

If either of our QBs will throw for more than 500+ passing yards, it will probably be Penix Jr. However, we are happy to have Nix along for the ride for this bet as well.

The Huskies Heisman Hopeful has thrown for more than 400+ yards in his last three consecutive games.

If Oregon can match Washington on the scoreboard, the Huskies may feel like they must keep throwing the ball all game.

Of course, I don’t love either QB to get to 500+, but at +1200, I think there is value in this prop.

Nix and Penix Jr To Combine For 600+ Pass Yards & Six TD Passes (+135)

If we like the chance of one of the QBs to get to 500 passing yards, then we really like both of them to combine for more than 600 passing yards.

Combining for six touchdown passes will be more challenging than the 600-yard passing, but nobody would be surprised if both quarterbacks ended Saturday’s contest with three passing TDs each.

The chance to play this prop at plus money (+135) is what put it over the top for us.
