LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Lamar Jackson became the betting favorite to win the Heisman Trophy last week. This week, his odds have fallen like American Pharoah's.

Bovada.lv, an Las Vegas online sportsbook, updated Jackson's Heisman odds to better-than-even money today. He's at 1-2 to win the coveted college football honor, ahead of Stanford's Christian McCaffrey at 11-2 and at 6-1. Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson, whose Tigers will host the Cardinals a week from Saturday, is next at 6-1.

The story is the same at other sportsbooks, with VegasInsider giving him 6-5 odds.

As a team, Bovada has upgraded Louisville's national title odds from 20-1 a week ago to 13-2 this week. That's third-best in the nation, just behind Alabama and Ohio State and just ahead of Clemson, Michigan and Houston.
