TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – As the college football season is set to begin, one of the most popular bets to make on the season is on the Heisman Trophy winner. One players odds to keep an eye on are those of Alabama linebacker, Will Anderson. Anderson has seen his odds shift tremendously since they first opened in December 2021.

Anderson currently has the fourth shortest odds (+1400) to win the Heisman and a chance to make history at that. Anderson’s odds have slowly crept up on the current favorite, CJ Stroud from Ohio State. Stroud opened up as a +450 favorite and has remained in the favorite spot ever since.

Public Moving The Line?

While Stroud has been the odds-on favorite since the odds first opened, he has recently been joined by some elite, but unusual company near the top of the online sportsbook odds board in Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker, Will Anderson Jr.

Anderson has recently joined Stroud in the Heisman conversation being that his College Football odds to win the award have shifted from the +6000 that they opened at to +1400. A shift like this does not come out of nowhere and the main reason behind it has been the way the public is betting.

Despite Stroud being the favorite, Anderson has been the one taking in most of the action. At Caesars sportsbook, Anderson is taking in the larger betting handle and more bets being placed. Stroud does have the advantage though when it comes to larger bets being placed.

Anderson’s Performance

Make no mistake, Anderson is the best of the best at his position and maybe even the best defensive player in the country at that. He is more than worthy of a Heisman Trophy after putting up 17.5 sacks during his 2021-22 campaign which led the nation last season. Not to mention it was also fourth on the all-time single-season sack record list as well.

If won, Anderson would join some elite company in Charles Woodson as the only two defensive players to win a Heisman Trophy. However, Anderson’s win would be far more impressive as Woodson also served as the special teams returner during his run.
