Perennial College Football Playoff participants lead the Heisman pack as odds recently opened on the award. 

Alabama’s Bryce Young won the Heisman Trophy last year, becoming the second straight winner from Alabama following Devonta Smith in 2020.

But it’s Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud who leads the pack as the current Heisman Trophy favorite, opening at +200. Young currently sits in second at +350. USC transfer, Caleb Williams, rounds out the top three at +800.

Heisman Trophy Futures Betting Picks, Prediction

The Safe Pick: C.J. Stroud | +200 at BetMGM

In his redshirt freshman season, Stroud put up ridiculous numbers that already landed him in the Ohio State record books. He’s already proven he can hang with the toughest competition.

Unlike some QBs with gaudy stats, he shined brightest on the biggest stages. Among many other highlights, Stroud threw 5 touchdowns against four different Big Ten opponents.

And to cap off his season, he broke a Rose Bowl record with 6 touchdown passes.

As Stroud enters his third year in the program and second season as a starter, he leads a Buckeye team that has championship expectations.

Stroud being more comfortable in the offense and in a leadership role will be a scary sight for the rest of the Big Ten. The same could be said for head coach Ryan Day.

Day enters his fourth full season as head of the Buckeye program. Stroud and Day growing together in their roles will be a huge factor in Stroud’s Heisman campaign. 

The Longshot: Tyler Van Dyke | +2500 at BetMGM

Tyler Van Dyke opens as a four-tier Heisman favorite. The Miami Hurricanes QB is entering his third year in the program and second as the starter.

I like Van Dyke more than others in the same tier because of his familiarity with the program. This is the year of the transfer in college football, and Van Dyke’s consistency could give him a leg up against others in his class.

The redshirt sophomore is coming off a fantastic freshman campaign in 2021. Raking in ACC Rookie of the year, Van Dyke certainly has the talent and numbers to compete in the ACC.

Can that talent transfer to national attention?

New coach Mario Cristobal is tasked with bringing The U back to glory. Tyler Van Dyke will be a huge contributor to that — if he can take the strides necessary to garner national attention. 

The Value Pick: DJ Uiagalelei | +2000 at BetMGM

It’s crazy to say a team had a down year when they won 10 games in the season. But, the 2021 Clemson Tigers, who were regulars in the College Football Playoffs, ended their season in the Cheez-It Bowl.

A big reason for their struggles was the inconsistent play of QB DJ Uiagalelei. As a sophomore, Uiagalelei had 9 passing TDs to 10 interceptions.

It was a frustrating season for the QB, especially because we all got huge glimpses of his talent in 2020. In two starts in 2020, Uiagalelei threw 342 and 439 yards and 2 TDs each.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, we didn’t see much of that guy at all in 2021. Now, with a full season to recover and take the reins in the Clemson offense, I’m looking for Uiagalelei to take a big leap forward and hopefully see much more of his 2020 form.

2022 Heisman Trophy Prediction: C.J. Stroud | +200 at BetMGM

Barring any disastrous start or injury, I’m counting on Stroud to be the wire-to-wire favorite in the 2022 Heisman race.

As the reigning Heisman winner, Bryce Young certainly will give Stroud a run for his money. But, I wonder how voters will react to Hall, given the “Bama Fatigue” that some national media members are feeling.

It’s hard to imagine Stroud’s numbers looking more ridiculous than 2021, but it still feels like there’s room for him to grow in the Buckeye offense.

Heisman Trophy Betting Strategies

Preseason hype, injuries, performance in fall camp and money coming in can all play a part in the odds changing before the season starts.

Staying up to date on the odds and news surrounding each player is crucial for finding value.
