Heisman Trophy Updated Odds: Andrew Luck Prohibitive Favorite

What a surprise. The player who had one of the greatest sophomore seasons in college football history is the most likely individual to take home its most coveted prize in 2011. 

Andrew Luck of the Stanford Cardinal is currently putting up 9 to 2 odds to take home the Heisman Trophy. Luck's team is missing Jim Harbaugh and a good chunk of his old offense, but it's hard to see Stanford not competing for a Pac-12 championship and even a national championship. Another double digit win season and Luck will have a great shot at capturing the prize.

After the jump, the other current contenders.

Landry Jones, Oklahoma Sooners (13/2): Jones could win this based on the "productive quarterback on a great team", as is usually the trend in Oklahoma.

Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina Gamecocks (7/1): The best pure athlete in college football, Lattimore could get a shot if South Carolina gets to a BCS bowl (not likely otherwise).

Denard Robinson, Michigan Wolverines (15/2): With Ohio State in disarray, the door is open for Michigan to reclaim the Big Ten is their own. Will Robinson fit with Brady Hoke?

LaMichael James, Oregon Ducks (15/2): James is receiving pretty long odds despite the return of a much-improved Darron Thomas. This wouldn't be such a bad play with a favorable home schedule in play and this being James's likely last season in Eugene.
