These Heisman hopefuls top the early bet list

College football is almost back folks.

With the race for this year’s Heisman Trophy taking center stage once again, tailgates, heated rivalries and future NFL stars will also re-enter our collective consciousness.

We’ve seen a lot of top names switch schools since the end of last season, which has created a changing Heisman landscape. There’s a lot of value to be found with that.

Below are the Heisman odds for 2022:

CJ Stroud +200

Bryce Young +350

Caleb Williams +800

Bijan Robinson +1600

Quinn Ewers +2000

Treyvon Henderson +2000

DJ Uiagalelei +2000

Anthony Richardson +2000

JT Daniels +2500

Kedon Slowis +2500

Jason Dart +2500

Tyler Van Dyke +2500

Caleb Williams, QB, USC (+800)

As you can see from the list, the top three players with the best odds are, unsurprisingly, quarterbacks. CJ Stroud goes into the year as a favorite, with defending Heisman winner Bryce Young right behind him. Third on the list is Oklahoma transfer Caleb Williams, brimming with intrigue and upside.

Last year should be the crowning glory for Spencer Rattler in Oklahoma. That didn’t happen. Caleb Williams took over halfway through the season and you could see his growth week by week. Midway through the Oklahoma game against Texas, Williams finished the year with a 65 percent completion rate for 1,810 yards, 21 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also added 381 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the ground.

Williams joined USC after his former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley. The two have a built-in familiarity and also landed wide receiver transfer Jordan Addison, who is considered one of the top receivers in the 2023 NFL draft class. Given a full season, Williams’ value at +800 is a tempting bet.

Quinn Ewers, QB, Texas (+2000)

Here’s an interesting one. Quinn Ewers started his college career in Ohio State last year but was buried on the depth chart by Stroud. The Texas product was ranked as the top player in the 2021 college recruit class across all positions by 247sports.com. It’s safe to say Ohio State is happy with Stroud after his performance last year. But Ewers has the talent and potential to break into the national scene in his freshman year as a starting quarterback after joining the University of Texas.

Ewers has the advantage of having arguably the best running back in the nation in Bijan Robinson and dynamic sophomore wide receiver Xavier Worthy running for him. That offense has the potential to explode this season, and if any of the names at the top of the list falter, Ewers could find himself in the Heisman conversation.

TreVeyon Henderson, RB, Ohio State (+2000)

As a true freshman, TreVeyon Henderson was already proving to be one of the best running backs in the country. He rushed 183 times for 1,248 yards and 15 touchdowns while adding 27 receptions for 312 yards and four extra points. He did all of this while not being fed the ball until his third game.

This year, Henderson will hit the ground running. With the departures of Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave to the NFL, Henderson will join wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba as the top two offensive players in a stacked Ohio State roster.

A running back hasn’t won the Heisman since Derrick Henry in 2015, but with the talent Henderson possesses, he’s worth taking on a flyer.
