It’s never too early to look toward next year — especially if you’re not an Alabama or Georgia fan.
A smattering of known quarterbacks are the favorites for the 2022 Heisman Trophy, including Alabama’s Bryce Young, who took home the trophy this past season.
Young, a rising junior, has one more year of eligibility.
For reference, at this time exactly one year ago, Young was the second-favorite, +400 favorite to win the 2021 Heisman Trophy. He was behind Spencer Rattler, who has since transferred from Oklahoma to South Carolina.
Rattler, the preseason favorite this past season, is tied for the ninth-best odds at +4000.
The 21-year-old, soon-to-be redshirt junior has disappointed over his first three season despite lofty expectations.
His replacement at Oklahoma, Caleb Williams, is transferring. It’s unclear as of Monday, Jan. 10, where he’s headed, but Williams is on this list as tied for the sixth-best favorite. USC seems likely, as Lincoln Riley took the job there and USC’s promising young QB Jaxson Dart just entered the portal.
C.J. Stroud is the second-favorite at +350 after he was a fellow Heisman finalist this season. Stroud received the fourth-most votes behind Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson and Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett.
Miami QB Tyler Van Dyke, Georgia QB JT Daniels and Oklahoma’s recent transfer at QB Dillon Gabriel round out the top-five favorites at +2000.
Daniels had been the sixth favorite at this time last year but got injured midway through the season and was benched in favor of redshirt senior Stetson Bennett.
Gabriel was at UCF last season when he was the +5000, tied-for-16th-best odds during the preseason. He suffered a season-ending injury in September before announcing that he would transfer to Oklahoma.
Heisman Betting FAQ
Who Can Win the Heisman?
There are plenty of players on this odds board who can’t win the Heisman, or are very unlikely to relative to their odds.
The Heisman Trophy winner:
- Is almost always a quarterback
- Wins 10+ games
- Puts up strong raw stats. Efficiency is less important, and touchdowns matter
- Plays in a Power 5 conference
How Does Heisman Voting Work?
870 voters across six regions get three total spots on their ballot, with players getting 3, 2 or 1 point for each vote.
The voters are comprised of primarily sports writers, with past Heisman winners also getting votes.
The regions do matter, because voters are more fixated in the southeast, northeast and midwest. The west coast voters cover a large percentage of the country, but don’t make up a large percentage of the vote. So there can be a bit of an east coast/southeast bias in Heisman Trophy betting and voting.
