Updated 2021 Heisman Trophy Odds After Week 7

  • Caleb Williams has +2500 odds to win the Heisman Trophy with the seventh-shortest odds.
  • Bryce Young leads the betting options at +180 but Matt Corral is close behind at +190.

NORMAN, Okla. – Caleb Williams has started just one game in his career but is already in the conversation to be awarded the Heisman Trophy.

Caleb Williams: A Viable Option?

The online gambling sites have made Caleb Williams' odds to win the Heisman interesting, to say the least. Williams took over for Spencer Rattler as the starting quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners and showed out in his first game.

2021-2022 Heisman Trophy Winner

  • Bryce Young +180
  • Matt Corral +190
  • CJ Stroud +900
  • Kenneth Walker +1800
  • Desmond Ridder +2000
  • Kenny Pickett +2200
  • Caleb Williams +2500

However, Williams is at a severe disadvantage and is likely not worth betting on. The last Heisman winner to miss a game of the season was Charlie Ward in 1993. Not only has Williams missed a game, but he didn’t start in any of the first four weeks of the season.

The Rest Of The Field Shakeups

Despite Kenneth Walker III rushing for just 84 yards and no touchdowns, he jumped over Desmond Ridder who tallied just 140 yards and one touchdown against UCF. Those betting on college football also saw Sean Clifford go from +2500 to off the odds board completely. This is potentially indicative of the severity of his injury.

2021-2022 Heisman Trophy Winner

  • Bijan Robinson +3000
  • TreVeyon Henderson +3500
  • Brian Robinson Jr +4000
  • Breece Hall +10000
  • Anthony Richardson +12500
  • British Brooks +12500
  • Jayden Daniels +12500
  • Spencer Sanders +12500
  • Zamir White +12500

Jayden Daniels dropped from +2800 to +12500, Casey Thompson went from +3300 to +15000 and Rattler moved from +3500 to +15000 after losing his starting job. As the weeks go on it seems the race is already confidently down to only a handful of players.
