Vegas odds have Watson as a Heisman front-runner

Vegas odds this week on the Heisman race has Watson as the second-highest odds in the nation behind only Alabama running back Derrick Henry according to the latest odds released by Bovada.

Watson's odds were 7/1 last week, and now they stand at 3/1 odds as he has jumped both (odds-wise) running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Leonard Fournette in the last week.

The full list of Vegas odds on potential Heisman candidates includes RB Derrick Henry (2/5), QB Deshaun Watson (3/1), RB Ezekiel Elliott (14/1), RB Leonard Fournette (14/1), QB Baker Mayfield (14/1), QB Keenan Reynolds (25/1), RB Dalvin Cook (50/1), RB Christian McCaffrey (50/1) and WR Corey Coleman (66/1).

QB Baker Mayfield, QB Keenan Reynolds and RB Dalvin Cook were new additions to Bovada's betting board this week.

Watson completed 24-of-35 passes for 343 yards and three touchdowns in an impressive 33-13 win over Wake Forest.

He has passed for 2944 yards with 26 touchdowns and ten interceptions (QBR of 85.8) this season. He also has rushed for 642 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.

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 quarterback rating of 188.57. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.
