There is only one week left in the regular season, which means that contenders for the Heisman Trophy are almost out of time to make their case. However, as of now, it appears that Vegas thinks it’s a two-horse race for the Heisman.

As has been the case for most of the season, Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. He is followed closely behind by Caleb Williams, the USC quarterback. After those two, Michigan running back Blake Corum still has a good shot before there is a drop-off in odds to get to Bo Nix and Max Duggan.

Notably, however, Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker fell from second in the Vegas odds after Week 11, after he left the South Carolina game with a torn ACL. His season is over.

Here are the latest Heisman Trophy odds, according to Vegas Insider.

20222 Heisman Trophy odds

These odds for the Heisman Trophy set up a major game within the game when Ohio State meets Michigan on the field. Between Stroud and Corum, the better player in the game could easily use the game as a springboard for the Heisman. Also, even though he’s a long shot at this point, Marvin Harrison Jr. will be in that game as well. That’s especially true if their team wins and they get an extra game to show off in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Qualifying for championship games is going to be important across the board. Take the PAC-12 for example. USC, Oregon, and Washington are all alive for the PAC-12 title. That game is going to be a head-to-head between quarterbacks making a run at the Heisman. However, those teams will need to qualify for the title game in Week 12 to get to that stage.

There aren’t any defensive players who seem to have a shot at the Heisman this season. Realistically, the only non-quarterback who has a shot, according to the Vegas odds, is Corum, the Michigan running back.
