Las Vegas updates 2022 Heisman odds ahead of spring football

Nikki Chavanelleby:Nikki Chavanelle02/27/22


The 2021 Heisman race was a rollercoaster right until the very end with a wildly different outcome than Las Vegas oddsmakers predicted heading into the season. The odds are changing daily for the 2022 Heisman Trophy and amongst the favorites are a handful of returning star quarterbacks. Spring football is sure to create some waves in the odds over the next two months.

The Alabama Crimson Tide achieved the impressive back-to-back Heisman feat in the 2021 season. Now, Bryce Young has the opportunity to be the first back-to-back Heisman winner since Archie Griffin in 1974-75. He leads the odds race for 2022 at +200.

Trailing Bryce Young in the odds is Ohio State star C.J. Stroud. Stroud put an exclamation point on his 2021 season with a six-touchdown performance in the Rose Bowl. That showing put the Buckeyes youngster at the top of mind for the Heisman in 2022. He finished fourth in the 2021 voting behind Young, Aidan Hutchinson and Kenny Pickett. On the receiving end of three of those touchdowns, Jaxson Smith-Njigba is also listed in the early odds.

Brand new USC quarterback Caleb Williams comes in at No. 3 in Vegas’ favorites for the Heisman in 2022. After winning the job in Norman, Williams threw for 1,912 yards and scored 27 total touchdowns as OU closed the year with an 11-2 record. He’ll attempt to do all that and more with Lincoln Riley in L.A. this season.

Notably, Alabama linebacker Will Anderson Jr. is the only defensive player listed in the early odds for the 2022 Heisman. After 57 solo tackles and 17.5 sacks in 2021, it’s no surprise to see Anderson already amongst the favorites.
