Final Heisman Odds for the 2012 Season

Videos by OutKick

As we reach college football eve, the season is so close you can almost taste it. We know it’s close at OKTC because you knuckleheads flooded the site yesterday. Between mobile and the main site over 150,000 of y’all were on the site yesterday. That’s the biggest single day for unique visitors since we launched the site over a year ago. Later today we’ll have Todd Fuhrman’s debut column with an insider’s look on the opening week’s college football lines and what Vegas is telling us to expect.

But in the meantime, I thought we’d put the preseason Heisman favorites out there for you guys to chew on today. Instead of reading who writers think will win the Heisman, how about we just see who Vegas thinks the top 44 Heisman candidates are?
