Nick Chubb Heisman Odds Jump to 10/1 After Dominating Week 1 Performance

222 yards and two touchdowns will do that.

Bovada has updated its Heisman Trophy odds, and to the surprise of no-one Nick Chubb is looking like a solid bet after week 1.

Listed at 25/1 ahead of the season, Chubb’s odds shot to 10/1 following a 222-yard, two-touchdown performance on 32 carries against UNC. Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart even compared him to Alabama Heisman winner Derrick Henry on Wednesday.

Granted, 10 to 1 would still lead to a pretty good payout if Chubb does bring home the hardware, so it’s not too late.
