We are in a little bit of a lull in the world of college football now that the regular season and the conference championship games are all done and dusted. Next up is bowl season, which gets rolling in a little under 2 weeks from now. We will have a ton of bowl coverage coming your way, as well as previews of the playoff games and the teams taking part. Even though there is some time until we get to the postseason, there is still some other business to attend to, starting with the Heisman Trophy. There appears to be a rather clear favorite, but let’s take a look at the current Heisman Trophy Betting Odds.
Heisman Trophy Betting Favorites and Odds Update | NCAA Football Lines
Caleb Williams (-2500)
The USC Trojans QB is the front runner for the Heisman, but you have to say that it was a disappointing end to the season for him and his team. The Trojans lost to the Utah Utes in the PAC-12 Championship Game, with Williams picking up a hamstring injury that may well keep him out of the upcoming bowl game. That aside, Williams threw for over 4,000 yards and37 TDs against just 4 INT. Those are certainly Heisman type numbers, especially compared to the competition.
Max Duggan (+2000)
The TCU Horned Frogs have been one of the feel-good stories of the year, and you have to say that QB Max Duggan is a big part of the reason why TCU are in the playoffs. Even though they came up short in the Big 12 Conference Championship Game, Duggan took the team on his shoulders in the 4th quarter and almost singlehandedly go them to OT before eventually coming up a half-yard short. His numbers are not as good as Williams’’, but you could argue that he means more to his team, who might not be where they are without him.
Stetson Bennett (+3300)
For years now, the Georgia Bulldogs have been a team that consistently runs the football and who have a group of backs that are truly brilliant. That said, Bennett has played an integral part in leading the Bulldogs to back-to-back unbeaten regular seasons, an SEC Conference Championship, and a National Championship. Not too shabby for a guy that most football fans outside of Athens wrote off. Still, his numbers this season simply don’t compare to the guys ahead of him here, which makes him a longshot to win.
CJ Stroud (+5000) and Bryce Young (+10000)
Winning the Heisman Trophy in back-to-back seasons is a total longshot, and it seems like we won’t see it happen here. Bryce Young had another great season for Alabama but missing the playoffs has probably sealed his fate. It may not be fair, but that’s how it goes. Stroud tied Williams for TD passes this season with 37, but he is behind him in most of the other QB categories. He did, though, lead his team to the playoffs, although they got in via the back door after USC lost in the PAC-12 Conference Championship Game. Both of these guys would very much appear to be longshots at best.
