Top Heisman Betting Favorites

Trevor Lawrence QB Clemson Tigers (+200)

Lawrence is the odds on favorite as we approach week 1, followed closely behind by Tagovailoa out of Alabama. These two seems to be flipping back and forth as the favorite, which makes sense when you go back and look at the history of this trophy. Over the past five seasons, a quarterback has won in four of them with the only exception being Derrick Henry in 2015. Aside from Henry, the award went to Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson and Marcus Mariota. If you want to stretch history back even further, quarterbacks have won it in eight of the last 10 seasons, with RB Mark Ingram disrupting the trend in 2009. Needless to say, a quarterback taking the award this year has a very high probability.

First, let’s start with Lawrence. He’s coming off arguably one of the best seasons of all-time by a freshman quarterback that saw him throw for 3,280 yards with 30 touchdowns all while leading the Tigers to a perfect 15-0 record. His stats were just impressive under the massive playoff spotlight, as he combined for 674 yards and six touchdowns en route to the championship victory defeating Notre Dame and Alabama. The buzz about Lawrence is here and likely here to stay. I mean, how could it not?

Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabama Crimson Tide (+225)

As for Tagovailoa, many feel as though he should have won the trophy last season had he not been injured during SEC Championship game. He would end his sophomore season throwing for 3,966 yards and 43 touchdowns through 15 games. He had a fantastic 69% completion rate and averaged 264.4 passing yards per game. Health is a concern for Tagovailoa, who is going to be dealing with some significant losses to their offensive line this upcoming season. With the odds set as they are, this is something to consider amongst other factors.

Currently, as it stands, both of these players don’t have enticing enough odds to take this down. Getting a 2.5 return doesn’t exactly bring the excitement and thrill were looking for in these futures. It’s also worth noting that recent winners have been total long shots, as Murray was +2300 before taking down the award.

Heisman Trophy Long-shot Picks

Sam Ehlinger Heisman Odds QB Texas Longhorns (+2800)

Ehlinger is one of my favorite long shots this season. He’s fresh off a 2018 season in which he completed 64.7% of his 425 pass attempts for 3,292 yards and 25 touchdowns. When he wasn’t slinging it, Ehlinger was rushing the ball 164 times for 482 yards and 16 touchdowns. The Longhorns have a very good chance to be near the top of the Big 12 conference once again this season, likely battling it out with Oklahoma. With Ehlinger having the ability to do it all and another year under his belt, he should continue to flourish under the guidance of coach Tom Herman, who lead the team to a 10-4 record overall and 7-2 in the conference.

Jerry Jeudy Heisman Odds WR Alabama (+4000)

As always, some buzz will follow some of the receivers that are in the running as well. Jerry Jeudy (+4000) is the first receiver on the board out of Alabama. It’s hard to imagine him winning this award if Tagovailoa is the one feeding him the ball. Desmond Howard was the last receiver to win the Heisman back in 1991. While a receiver by trade, Howard is best known as a return specialist.
