Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah made a sizable leap in the latest Heisman Trophy odds released by Bovada.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, Georgia running back Todd Gurley and Ameer Abdullah are the favorites in the latest Heisman Trophy odds released Tuesday by Bovada.

Abdullah in particular made a sizable jump, from 25/1 to 9/1, after rushing for 208 yards and three touchdowns vs. Illinois on Saturday. Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill also shares 9/1 odds, followed by Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson at 12/1 and Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall at 14/1.

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon is next at 16/1, a slight dip from 14/1 the previous week. Gordon rushed for 181 yards (albeit on 32 carries) and two touchdowns vs. South Florida. ESPN.com's Heisman Watch also has Gordon in its top 10 at No. 7, though the star Badgers back will still need a stellar Big Ten season to make a serious push for college football's top honor.
