The city of Las Vegas loves LSU running back Leonard Fournette. 

According to the Bovada Sportsbook, Fournette has a current odds of 1/2 to win the Heisman Trophy award in 2015. It's truly a remarkable early standing for the New Orleans native, who's averaging 216 yards per game and running to the tune of an 8.7 yards-per-carry average. 

In terms of other SEC players, Georgia running back Nick Chubb currently registers fifth, with 15-to-1 odds of winning the prize. Also in the top 15 are Alabama running back Derrick Henry, Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen, and Ole Miss signal-caller Chad Kelly.
