The line for this Saturday’s Georgia Bulldogs-Auburn Tigers game was already taken down by most of the biggest Vegas sportsbooks due to Cam Newton uncertainty. Now Newton’s being removed from Heisman Trophy odds lists too.
Bodog.com just took Heisman odds off the board because of Cam Newton allegations. Newton was heavy favorite.
Other Heisman contenders include Oregon Ducks RB LeMichael James, Boise St. Broncos QB Kellen Moore, Michigan Wolverines QB Denard Robinson, and TCU Horned Frogs QB Andy Dalton. All had been left in Newton’s wake, but goodness knows what’s on the table right now. Soooo many mixed metaphors.
This doesn’t necessarily mean power bettors are in the know, rather that Vegas is just as uncertain as the rest of us. Of course, with the most recent allegation from Kenny Rogers, the ball might now be in the Mississippi St. Bulldogs’ court.
