Alabama star quarterback Bryce Young may very well accomplish this year what only one other has before him: a second Heisman Trophy.
That, according to online sportsbook BetUS.com, who lists him in second place (tied with USC’s Caleb Williams) with +550 odds amongst fifty players nationwide to win the coveted award. Ohio State’s CJ Stroud is currently the odds-on favorite at +250.
Moreover, while Young (who won the Heisman last year with a record-setting 68 percent of the vote) may be tied for second place in the betting odds, he is the favorite amongst BetUS’s customers, attracting 34.25% of the dollar volume wagered thus far on the eventual Heisman winner that will be announced on December 10, 2022. “That’s more than an 8 percent margin over the bettors’ second favorite, USC’s Caleb Williams,” says Barry Barger, senior betting analyst for BetUS. “And the odds-on favorite, CJ Stroud, has attracted only 16.7% of the betting volume we’ve seen.”
“Bryce would join Archie Griffin, the only other player in its 86-year history to hoist the Heisman Trophy twice. Not only that, but he would be doing it back to back after taking the honor last year. While it may sound like an improbable feat - even for Young - bettors seem convinced that he will make history this season,” Barger adds.
BetUS betting analysts, including Barry Barger, are available on short notice for remote interview surrounding this or any of the dozens of other ‘prop’ bets already available for this year’s college football season that have fans rearing for kickoff.
