Over the first two weeks, Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins has gotten off to a stellar start—throwing for 546 yards and nine touchdowns. However, after seeing his Heisman Trophy odds increase after Week 1, they’ve decreased after Week 2. According to Bovada, the Buckeye signal-caller still stands with the third best odds to win the Heisman, but he’s dropped from 6-to-1 odds to 13-to-2 odds.

Both QBs in front of Haskins (Tua Tagovailoa and Will Grier) in the race for the Heisman saw their odds get increased going into Week 3. Tagovailoa, leading Alabama, now has 10-to-3—an increase from 4-to-1 last week. Grier, who is under center at West Virginia, is right behind Tagovailoa at 9-to-2. Last weekend, Grier was at 5-to-1 odds.

Once again, Haskins isn’t the only Buckeye on Bovada’s Heisman board. Running back J.K. Dobbins maintained his odds at 50-to-1. Defensive lineman Nick Bosa actually saw his odds increase, going from a 200-to-1 longshot last week to a 100-to-1 longshot this week.

On the national title front, Bovada’s odds saw the Buckeyes maintain their position tied (with Georgia) for the third best odds to win it all. Alabama and Clemson are still the top teams in the current odds listings—but they both took small dips this week. Alabama went from 7-to-4 to 2-to-1 odds; Clemson, after surviving a tough road contest with Texas A&M, went from 9-to-2 to 5-to-1.

Below are the 10 teams with the best odds.
