  • Caleb Williams (USC QB) won the 2022 Heisman Trophy.
  • Odds for the 2023 Heisman odds market will be posted soon.
  • Arch Manning and Cade Klubnik are names to watch in 2023.

The 2022 college football regular season has come and gone, and the Heisman Trophy has been handed out

Online sports betting never sleeps, though, and there’s another year of Heisman Trophy odds to prepare for. 

Before the new odds become available, let’s review what happened this past season and consider some early names for next year’s market.

Who Won the 2022 Heisman Trophy?

Caleb Williams, sophomore quarterback at USC, won the 2022 Heisman Trophy on Dec. 10, 2022. 

Heisman Voting Results

Caleb Williams won the Heisman Trophy with 544 first-place votes. TCU quarterback Max Duggan came in second.

CJ Stroud and Stetson Bennett rounded out the top four, respectively.

Caleb Williams Heisman Odds 2022

Caleb Williams opened the Heisman odds market at +800 earlier this year. His odds fluctuated throughout the 2022 season, but he was never far from the top of the table. After CJ Stroud and Ohio State lost to Michigan, Williams became the preeminent favorite at -2500.

2023 Heisman Odds

Unfortunately, the odds for the 2023 college football betting season haven’t been released yet by the BetMGM online sportsbook. 

Check back soon for a fresh market.

2023 Heisman Candidates

Naturally, college football betting regulars will want to get an early jump on the 2023 Heisman odds market.

Since the Heisman Trophy odds aren’t yet available at BetMGM, here are five names to consider before the market opens next year.

2023 Heisman Candidates: Caleb Williams

Bryce Young was an early favorite in the 2022 market for one very simple reason: Bettors knew he could win the Heisman. Young won the award in 2021.

As a young quarterback who just won this season’s award, Williams will face a similar scenario in 2023. He may be priced as an even bigger favorite than Young was early this year, given USC coach Lincoln Riley’s proclivity for coaching up Heisman candidates.

2023 Heisman Candidates: Drake Maye

North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye quietly spent much of this season in the thick of the Heisman race. Young, Stroud and Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker received most of the publicity, but Maye’s odds were right behind them throughout October and November. 

With Maye promising to return to Chapel Hill for another year in Mack Brown’s high-scoring offense, Maye is likely to remain a prominent factor in next year’s market. 

2023 Heisman Candidates: Arch Manning

Every college football odds market is driven by betting interest, and you can bet that there’s going to be a whole lot of interest in incoming Texas quarterback Arch Manning. 

He has the talent of Andrew Luck and the pedigree of… well, a Manning. Obviously.

The second he steps foot on campus, he’ll be a Heisman contender in the eyes of many bettors. That means his name is likely to appear in the betting market long before any announcements are made about whether he beats out Quinn Ewers for the Longhorns’ starting job. 

2023 Heisman Candidates: Cade Klubnik

Cade Klubnik finally, mercifully, took over the Clemson offense during the ACC title game and led the Tigers in a romp over North Carolina. DJ Uiagalelei is leaving the program and transferring elsewhere.

The offense will be Klubnik’s to command next season, and that could quickly turn into a lethal experiment. Klubnik will have plenty of weapons at his disposal.

If he looks as good next season as he did in the ACC Championship, Klubnik could be a real Heisman contender.

2023 Heisman Candidates: Chandler Morris

The guy who was supposed to be TCU’s quarterback this year ended up losing his job to the guy who just finished second in the Heisman race.

If Chandler Morris can come anywhere close to what Duggan just did in his collegiate Swan Song, wouldn’t he be Heisman-relevant?
