The 2022 Heisman Trophy picture is sharpening into focus through the thick of the summer.

Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud recently overtook Alabama’s Bryce Young as the favorite in the quarterback-driven award. But in a field with a laundry list of contenders, where do player like USC’s Caleb Williams, Texas’ Bijan Robinson, Alabama’s Will Anderson and others?

Here’s how the action’s shaping up at Caesars with the season just a little more than a month away.

*Odds via Caesars, featuring players at shorter than 100-1

Stroud Up, Everyone Else Down

Caesars originally priced nine players +2500 or shorter to win the Heisman.

Stroud is the only players whose odds have improved.

The shop’s moves includes Young from +200 to +350; Williams from +500 to +1000; Robinson from +2000 to +3000; Spencer Rattler from +2000 to +4000; and, Casey Thompson from +2500 to +7500 in the slew of adjustments.

Stroud ranked top-five nationally last year in both passing yards and touchdowns, as well as QBR. His final impression on the 2021-22 season was a 573-yard, six-touchdown performance over Utah in the Rose Bowl.

“There’s been a lot of Ohio State love recently for futures,” Caesars Lead College Football Trader, Joseph Feazel, said in an article by Max Meyer. “It makes sense that Stroud is getting that love as well. They’re the huge favorites to win the Big Ten and they have the second-lowest odds to win the national title, so he’s in good position if he has a good year.”

Young Isn’t Only Intriguing Alabama Heisman Candidate

Young’s getting a respectable amount of tickets at Caesars — (4.1%, sixth-most), but his handle — or total dollars wagered — isn’t even top 10.

In fact, Caesars noted both Anderson Jr. (6.9%) and Jahmyr Gibbs (5.8%) both pace their teammate and reigning Heisman winner. That’s awesome.

Anderson Jr. is the scariest linebacker in the entire country and Alabama’s bound to unleash Gibbs, who ran amok in the ACC with Georgia Tech last year.

Those two are among the rare few trending up in this market. Anderson’s improved from +6000 to +4000 and Gibbs +10000 to +6000 odds.
