2022 Heisman Betting Odds and Favorites

2022 Heisman Betting Odds and Favorites

The Frontrunners

CJ Stroud, QB, Ohio State (+220)

Stroud was outstanding as a freshman, passing for 4,435 yards and 44 touchdowns. He also completed 71.9% of his throws. If there is one thing we know about Ohio State they will have the best receiving corps in the country. Jaxon Smith- Njigba and Marvin Harrison Jr are studs, so Stroud will have the firepower to match or exceed his numbers from last year.

Bryce Young, QB, Alabama (+380)

The reigning Heisman trophy winner, Bryce Young is back trying to win the Nick Saban another title after last years loss to Georgia. Young threw for an eye popping 4,872 yards, 47 touchdowns last season. Alabama lost a lot of talent from last years team but that happens almost year. If their new batch of receivers can grow up quick it can be another great year for Young.

Caleb Williams, QB, USC (+700)

With Lincoln Riley arriving from Oklahoma QB Caleb Williams has become a favorite. As a freshman in 2021, Williams had his ups and downs in 2021 but showed enough skill and promise to think Riley can take him to the next level. Expectations are high for both USC and Riley this season so it will be interesting to see how fast Riley can work his magic.

Top non-QBs

Will Anderson, DE/LB, Alabama (+1,600)

Will Anderson was a Heisman finalist in 2021 as a sophomore after he put up 101 tackles, 31 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks. This is year as a Junior he is expected to be the one of the best defensive football players in college football in years and will likely be a top pick 5 in the NFL Draft. If a defensive player is going to win Anderson is it.

Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas (+2,200)

Bijan Robinson was expected to be a top running back his first two seasons but after modest seasons some are expecting him to finally live up to expectations. As a sophomore in 2021, Robinson ran for 1,127 yards and 11 touchdowns to go along with 26 receptions for 295 yards and four receiving touchdowns.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State (+2,500)

Jaxon Smith-Njigba was arguably the best receiver on his team as a sophomore that included two top 11 picks in the NFL Draft. He had an amazing 95 receptions for 1,606 yards and nine touchdowns, including 15 catches for 347 yards and three scores in the Rose Bowl against Utah. If there’s any skill player who would win it this year, it’s probably him.

Dark Horse Contenders

Quinn Ewers, QB, Texas (+3,500)

Quinn Ewers started at +5,000 but the odds have dropped and are now set at +3,500. Ewers has a lot of talent in the receiver room and Texas is looking to have a decent team as a whole. Many experts believe Ewers can have a breakout season and challenge for the Heisman if Texas can get some wins

DJ Uiagalelei, QB, Clemson (+4,500)

DJ Uiagalelei was terrible his first year as the starter for Clemson, But I am expecting the QB and the team as a whole to bounce back. They still have a ton of talent on the team, and Uiagalelei will benefit from having a year under his belt. He reportedly worked hard in the offseason to lose weight and gain speed which will help him become a better all around QB. If Clemson isn’t in the ACC Championship for a second straight year, I’d be stunned.
