Latest Vegas odds on Watson winning the Heisman

The latest 2016 Heisman odds were released on Thursday and it had Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson's odds shift from 9-2 to 5-1 on winning the prestigious Heisman Trophy award.

However, Watson is not the favorite as LSU running back Leonard Fournette now has 9-2 odds.

The Heisman finalist quarterback completed 333 of 491 passes for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns and also had 207 rushes for 1105 yards and 12 scores this past season. His 5,209 yards of total offense and his 47 total touchdowns were ACC records, and his rushing total was a record for a Clemson quarterback.

His 487 yards of total offense set a record for a National Championship game, and he is the first quarterback in FBS history to have at least 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a single season.

In his rookie campaign, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions for a tremendous quarterback rating of 188.57. He also had five scores rushing.

Here are the odds according to Las Vegas Sportsbook for the top candidates with RB Leonard Fournette 9-2, QB Deshaun Watson 5-1, RB Christian McCaffrey 11-2, J.T. Barrett 12-1, QB Baker Mayfield at 12-1, RB Dalvin Cook 12-1, RB Nick Chubb 12-1, QB Chad Kelly 16-1, and QB Josh Rosen 16-1.
