Caleb Williams Heisman Odds: Williams Among Top-2 Favorites
By Mike Ferguson
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

Through three games, Caleb Williams’ transition from the Southwest to the West Coast has been seamless. USC has yet to be tested so far in 2022, but in Saturday’s 45-17 win over Fresno State, Williams passed for 284 yards and accounted for four total touchdowns.

Latest Caleb Williams Heisman Odds

Following the blowout win last week, Caleb Williams Heisman odds are +300, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The USC quarterback has been among the favorites all season including opening as a top-3 favorite this summer.

CJ Stroud, QB, Ohio State+200
⭐️ Caleb Williams, QB, USC+300
Bryce Young, QB, Alabama+400
Stetson Bennett, QB, Georgia+1200
Dillon Gabriel, QB, Oklahoma+2000
JJ McCarthy, QB, Oklahoma+2000

Williams began the year with +700 odds, which was behind only Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud and Alabama’s Bryce Young, but at this point, Williams is now behind only Stroud and not by a large margin.

EDITOR'S NOTE: California sports betting is currently prohibited so there are no sports betting apps in California legally offering odds on the Heisman Trophy. Odds from DraftKings Sportsbook, which is available in other states, were used for this article.

What to Know About Caleb Williams' Heisman Run

At this point, Williams feels like a legitimate contender. The change of scenery seems to have helped Williams’ case. With the ability to beat teams with his arms and his legs, Williams is unquestionably one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. 

Williams currently ranks in the top 25 nationally in passing yardage (874) and passing touchdowns (8). He’s seventh in passer rating and fourth in QBR. 

For Heisman contenders, team success is almost certainly a prerequisite. The Trojans are currently ranked No. 7 in the country. There is a decent chance they will be the favorites in every remaining game.

Currently, an Oct. 15 trip to Utah is the only contest remaining against ranked teams. Although the margin for error may be smaller, Williams seems to have a much easier path to the College Football Playoff than either Alabama or Ohio State. That could end up being a deciding factor when it’s time to present college football’s ultimate prize in December.
