Stroud is now extremely unlikely to claim the award. There were no big suprises in the PAC10 final game, and USC’s Caleb Williams is now a huge -2500 favorite to win the award. This implies a probability of more than 96% for Williams to clinch the award, whereas Stroud’s +4600 give him just a 2% chance.
After Ohio State week 12 loss to Michigan, Stroud’s odds have fallen to +2000. The catastrophic performance means that the Buckeye’s are out of the Championship tournament and the NCAAF Championship, while Michigan advances to then big 10 championship game. This makes it extremely hard for CJ Stroud to win the award, as most Heisman Trophy winners participatd in the big game. At the moment, the betting favorite is USC’s Caleb Williams. Other notable contenders like Tennesee’s QB Hendon Hooker have been left out of the Heisman finalists.
Ohio State smashed Indiana 56-14 in week 10, in a game where Stroud thre for 297 yards and 5 TD’s. In week 11, the Buckeyes edged past maryland in a 43 – 30 win. Even though Stroud’s game wasn’t as impressive as the week before, his Heisman odds jumped from +145 to +130, making him the top favorite to clinch the trophy.
At the same time Volunteer’s Hendon Hooker also played strong against Missouri, but the sports betting sites still kept his odds at +300. Hooker had been the favorite the week prior, as the Volunteer’s continued their unbeaten run, but their loss to Georgia placed him firmly behind stroud alongside NCU quarterback Drake Maye (+500), Michigan’s Blake Corum (+600), quarterbacks Caleb Williams and Bo Nix (+800)
Stroud has been a heavy favorite to win the Heisman Trophy throughout the 2022 college football season as he’s been the driving force behind Ohio State Buckeye’s unbeaten 10-0 run. However, Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker has been just as impressive during the regular season, as the Volunteers have gone on a rampage in the SEC.
After week 9 of the season, most books had Hooker as a heavy favorite. This is the first time in the NCAAF season that the sportsbooks and oddsmakers have seen Hooker as a favorite over Stroud, but it could all change in the next few weeks.
Ultimately, it comes down to the last games of the season, where Michigan vs Ohio State could prove to be the deciding factor. If the Buckeye’s can’t make it to the Championship game, Stroud’s Heisman odds will drop significantly.
In the past years, the winners of the Heisman Trophy have almost exclusively come from the final game, but there are exceptions like Baker Mayfield in 2017. Therefore, all hope is not lost for Stroud. However, it’s quite rare that the winner would be picked outside of the top 4.
Even though Stroud’s Heisman Odds have plummeted, he’s still one of the favorites as the first choice for the NFL Draft. At the moment, he sits comfortably in the second place at +230 odds at most Ohio sportsbooks alongisde QB Bryce Young.
|🏆 Football Player||🏆 First Draft Pick Odds|
|🏅 Bryce Young||+225|
|🏅 CJ Stroud||+230|
|🏅 Wili Anderson||+265|
|🏅 Jalen Carter||+1500|
|🏅 Myles Murphy||+2000|
