Officials at Bodog have released their odds to handicap the 2011 Heisman Trophy race and they list Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck as a slight favorite (5/4), followed by Alabama RB Trent Richardson (3/2) and Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III (3/1).
All three players have odds of 3/1 or better, with Griffin -- who plays Saturday against Texas -- the only one of the top three favorites to have another opportunity to sway voters with an on-field effort before ballots are due next week. No other player has better odds than 12/1 and those belong to Houston QB Case Keenum.
