Heisman Trophy 2012 odds: Collin Klein, Johnny Manziel are top 2 candidates

Mike Zarrilli

The latest odds are out for this year's Heisman Trophy race and Klein and Manziel are the overwhelming favorites to fight for the honor.

The latest college football odds are out for the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and Kansas State's Collin Klein is beginning to look like a lock at this point to take home the trophy after the magical season that K-State has enjoyed at the top of the Big 12. That said, a late dark horse has taken over the second place position in Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and the two will likely fight it out until the end barring an injury or complete meltdown.

Klein deserves the award if he can hold steady with his current performance but it's hard to ignore Manziel's stats as a freshman and his high profile win over Alabama last Saturday.

Klein is 145 of 208 for the season for a 69.7 completion percentage and 12 touchdowns against only 3 interceptions. He also has 748 rushing yards and 19 rushing touchdowns.

Manziel upset the Crimson Tide last Saturday, so he has the biggest win on his resume. He is 227 of 336 on the year for a 67.6 completion percentage and 18 touchdowns with 6 interceptions. He's rushed for 1,014 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Here's the latest rundown on the odds.

2012 Heisman Trophy odds:
Collin Klein - QB, Kansas State - 2/5
Johnny Manziel - QB, Texas A&M - 3/1
Marqise Lee - WR, USC - 8/1
Manti Te'o - LB, Notre Dame - 10/1
Kenjon Barner - RB, Oregon - 10/1
Braxton Miller - QB Ohio State - 30/1
