Latest Will Levis Heisman Odds: Kentucky Quarterback Has Outside Shot at 2022 Heisman Trophy
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

Kentucky's Will Levis is one of the hottest names around NFL Draft circles. And the 2022 Heisman sleeper looked like both a bonafide NFL QB prospect and a real Heisman contender in his season debut this year.

Levis led Kentucky to a solid 37-13 victory over Miami Ohio, putting up some impressive in the process. 

Will Levis' Odds of Winning 2022 Heisman Trophy

Levis completed 21-of-32 attempts for 303 yards with 3 touchdowns to 1 interception. He averaged a rock-solid 9.5 yards per attempt in the game. Somewhat surprisingly, Levis has fallen in the odds to win the award after Week 1. Will Levis is currently +6000 to take home the hardware after entering the season at +5000, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Why Are Bookmakers so High on Levis?

Levis threw just 102 passes in two total seasons at Penn State, but was an instant playmaker in Lexington. In his first season as a college football starter, Levis passed for 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also added nearly 400 yards and nine scores with his legs.

One area where Levis can improve is cutting down on the interceptions. The 13 picks thrown last season was tied for the most among SEC quarterbacks. Still, Levis ranked in the top 20 nationally in QBR. He ranked in the middle of the pack in the SEC in most passing categories in 2021.

For Levis to have a real shot at winning the Heisman, Kentucky will probably need another 10-win season and he will need to put up big numbers. It is beginning to appear that running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. could be available this season after a tumultuous offseason. That would be a welcomed addition for the Wildcats, but would probably reduce the number of passes that Levis will throw this season.

No Kentucky player has ever won the Heisman Trophy. In fact, the Wildcats haven’t had a player finish in the top 10 for the Heisman since Tim Couch finished fourth in 1998.
