Heisman Trophy Betting Odds

Odds to win Heisman Trophy

A season-ending injury to Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Hendon Hooker has led to another change atop the Heisman Trophy odds. Hooker is done for the season due to a knee injury which has knocked him out of the odds altogether and propelled Caleb Williams to the top as the new favorite.

Caleb Williams (-110) USC

Williams led the Trojans past UCLA is a shootout last week which booked the Trojans a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Williams’ stats are stellar with 33 touchdowns passes to only three interceptions and seven more TDs on the ground. One thing that could hurt Williams’ Heisman chances is that USC remains outside the College Football Playoffs picture. The CFB hasn’t had a team from the Pac-12 in it since 2016-17. If Williams does win the Heisman hopefully you jumped on him earlier this month when he was a +1400 underdog.

CJ Stroud (+100) Ohio State

Stroud’s mediocre showing in Ohio State’s closer than expected win over Maryland last week cost him some points in the Heisman race. Stroud only found the end zone once in the win. His chances at the Heisman may depend on his performance on the national stage against rival Michigan this week. If Ohio State were to lose to Michigan Stroud’s Heisman chances could implode.

Blake Corum (+1500) Michigan

Corum remains a Heisman underdog, despite pacing the Wolverines’ offense last week in their close 19-17 win over Illinois. Against Illinois Corum scored the Wolverines only touchdown while rushing for 108 yards on 18 carries. He’s now third in the nation in rushing yards and he has 18 touchdowns. How he does, and how Michigan does against Ohio State will make or break his Heisman chances.

Odds per FanDuel Sportsbook:

Caleb Williams -110

C.J. Stroud +100

Blake Corum +1500

Max Duggan +6000

Bo Nix +8000

Jayden Daniels +8000

Drake Maye +10,000

Stetson Bennett IV +12,000


Nov. 1, 2022

There’s a new favorite in the Heisman Trophy race as Tennessee Volunteers’ quarterback Hendon Hooker has jumped to the top of the odds list. If Hooker does end up taking home the hardware at the end of the season hopefully you threw a few bucks on him back in September when he was getting +4000 odds.

Hendon Hooker (+100) Tennessee

Hooker has led Tennessee to an 8-0 record which includes wins over LSU, Alabama and Kentucky. He has a 191.6 QB rating while passing for 2,338 yards with 21 touchdowns and only 1 interception. Hooker could possibly all but lock up the award this week if he can lead Tennessee to a win over No. 1 ranked Georgia.

CJ Stroud (+200) Ohio State

Right now the only one that appears to have a shot at stealing the Heisman away from Hooker is Stroud. He has led the Buckeyes to an undefeated record in the Big Ten but Ohio State doesn’t have as many wins over high profile teams as Tennessee does. To move ahead of Hooker Stroud will likely need Tennessee to falter down the stretch and deliver a big win over Michigan in the Buckeyes’ regular season finale.

Blake Corum (+1400) Michigan

The Wolverines are also undefeated and their offense has leaned heavily on Corum this season. Corum has rushed for 1078 yards with 14 touchdowns so far this season. He’s been especially dominant over his last five games, which includes a 243-yards performance against Maryland. He’ll also need Hooker or Stroud to falter for his shot, and a big performance against Ohio State would also help.

Sept. 30, 2022

There was some movement on the Heisman Trophy odds following Week 2 in college football. CJ Stroud pulled away as the overall favorite, while Caleb Williams leapt over Bryce Young to takeover the No. 2 spot on the odds list.

CJ Stroud (+250) Ohio State

Stroud odds improved from +300 a week ago after his Buckeyes beat up on Arkansas State 45-12. Stroud passed for 351 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the win. He has not thrown a pick yet this season. Ohio State’s run of cupcake matchups continues next week against Toledo so Stroud should keep putting up impressive numbers.

Caleb Williams (+300) USC

Williams odds moved from +600 to +300 after he delivered a big game last week is USC’s 41-28 win over Stanford. Williams completed 74 percent of his passes for 341 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. If Williams can keep up with his current pace he’ll surpass the stats he put up in 10 games last season in five or less. USC hosts Fresno State his week.

Bryce Young (+400) Alabama

The reigning Heisman winner saw his odds on a repeat slide slightly this week down from +300 to +400. Alabama barely getting past Texas 20-19 as 21-point favorites was likely behind that. Young did just enough in the win, passing for 213 yards with a single touchdown, and orchestrated what ended up being the game-winning drive. Alabama should have the chance to bounce back with a big performance this week against Louisiana-Monroe.

CJ Stroud +250

Update Sept. 7, 2022

After Week 1 of the college football season there are now co-favorites on the Heisman Trophy odds. Will CJ Stroud or Bryce Young leave the other behind this week, or are we looking at the beginning of a season-long tight race?

CJ Stroud (+300) Ohio State

Stroud and Ohio State drew a tough opponent in the season opener but prevailed in a 21-10 win over Notre Dame. Stroud had a strong game in the win, completing 70 percent of this passes for 223 yards with two touchdowns. Next up for Ohio State is a cupcake matchup against Arkansas State which should give Stroud and the Buckeyes offense a chance to let loose.

Bryce Young (+300) Alabama

Alabama breezed to an easy 55-0 victory over Utah State in their season opener. That was to be expected since they were 42-point favorites. Young looked like the reigning Heisman winner in the victory, completing 64 percent of his passes for 195 yards and five touchdown passes. He also ran in for another TD while rushing five times for 100 yards. Young and Alabama get a tougher test this week on the road against Texas.

Caleb Williams (+600) USC

Williams’ USC debut was a dominant 66-14 rout of Rice. Williams showed his double threat prowess in the win, completing 86 percent of his passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 68 yards on six carries. USC visits Stanford in a Pac-12 battle this week that should be a tougher test for the high-powered USC offense.

Sept. 1, 2022

Last year’s Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young is back to try and join Archie Griffin as the only two-time Heisman winner. Despite already having a Heisman on his mantle Young isn’t the early-season Heisman favorite, as that honors fall to CJ Stroud.

CJ Stroud (+200) Ohio State

Stroud is coming off an excellent 2021 season, but a late loss against rival Michigan may have cost him the Heisman. In 12 games last season Stroud completed 71.9 percent of his passes for 4,435 yards with 44 touchdowns and six interceptions. Stroud has the chance to make a statement right out of the gate as Ohio State opens the season with a high-profile matchup against Notre Dame.

Bryce Young (+400) Alabama

The reigning Heisman winner, Young carried Alabama to a berth in the National Championship game last season before coming up short against Georgia. In 15 games Young completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,872 yards with 47 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Young has a shot to put up big numbers in Week 1 at home to Utah State before Alabama’s first real test on the road against Texas a week later.

Caleb Williams (+600) USC

Williams took over the starting QB job in Oklahoma last season from former Heisman contender Spencer Rattler. After the season he chose to follow his former coach Lincoln Riley to USC. Williams is surrounded by talent and hype at USC and if he can live up to it, he could be a Heisman shoe-in. His Heisman chances could improve even more if USC can start winning again after last year’s disappointing 4-8 season.

The Heisman ballots were distributed this week with only the conference championship games remaining before the votes are due. Right now Bryce Young is the Heisman favorite at FanDuel Sportsbook, but he’s far from a lock.

Bryce Young (-220) Alabama

Young led Alabama to a tight 24-22 win over Auburn in four overtimes last week, but it wasn’t exactly a standout performance in a game Alabama was favored to win by 20.5 points. Young will get the chance to prove he’s Heisman worthy as an underdog in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. If he can tame the Bulldogs the Heisman could be his. If Alabama loses it could cost him the honor

CJ Stroud (+450) Ohio State

Stroud has been the Heisman favorite for over a month but may have watched the honor slip through his fingers last week after Ohio State lost to Michigan. Stroud wasn’t bad in the loss, but he likely wasn’t good enough either. With no more chances to impress Heisman voters remaining, his Heisman chances look bleak right now.

Aidan Hutchinson (+1600) Michigan

Only one defensive player has ever won the Heisman – Michigan cornerback Charles Woodson in 1997. Could another Michigan defender join him this year? Hutchinson was a major factor last week in Michigan’s win over Ohio State with three sacks and 15 quarterback pressures. On the season he has 51 tackles, which includes 14.5 tackles for a loss, and 13 sacks. If Hutchinson can continue to be a factor this week in the Big Ten Championship Game against Iowa he could make some history an join Woodson.

Oct. 30, 2021 Update

The top of the Heisman Trophy odds list remains the same, but a new name joins the Top 3 this week. Look for a potential shakeup on the odds list next week with Ole Miss and Alabama scheduled to meet up this weekend.

Odds courtesy of FanDuel, home of college football bonus specials and awesome NCAA props.

It’s deadlocked atop the Heisman Trophy odds this week as the oddsmakers don’t know who has the advantage between Matt Corral and Bryce Young.

Matt Corral (+200) Ole Miss

Corral led the Rebels to a tight win over Arkansas last week that pushed him into co-favorites status of the Heisman odds. Against Arkansas Corral passed for 287 yards with two touchdowns and he also rushed for 94 yards with two more TDs on the ground. On the season Corral now has 12 touchdown passes to zero interceptions and eight rushing TDs.

Bryce Young (+200) Alabama

Young surrendered sole possession of the top spot on the Heisman odds after Alabama was upset by Texas A&M last week. Young finished the game with 369 yards passing, three touchdowns and an interception. He now has 20 touchdown passes to three interceptions on the season. Young will need a big game this weekend against Mississippi State if he hopes to separate himself from Corral again.

CJ Stroud (+1600) Ohio

Stroud moves back into the Top 3 and into the Heisman conversation again after leading Ohio State to a crushing 66-17 win over Maryland last week. Stroud torched the Terrapins for 406 yards passing and five touchdowns in the blowout. Don’t be surprised if Stroud drops back a little this week as Ohio State heads into their bye week. Stroud still has plenty of big games left to prove he’s Heisman worthy with upcoming matchups against Penn State, Michigan State and Michigan.

Bijan Robinson +3000

Oct. 6, 2021 Update

There’s been a switch atop the Heisman Trophy odds this week after Bryce Young won his showdown with Matt Corral last weekend.

Bryce Young (+125) Alabama

Young led Alabama over Corral and Ole’ Miss last week to take over top spot on the Heisman odds. Young passed for 241 yards with a pair of touchdown passes in Alabama’s 42-21 win. He now has 17 touchdowns to only two interceptions on the season. Alabama has two somewhat challenging road games the next two weeks against Texas A&M and Mississippi State which could give Young a chance to pad his stats and increase his lead in the Heisman race.

Matt Corral (+250) Ole Miss

Corral had a chance to pull away in the Heisman race last week but couldn’t get it done against Alabama. In the loss he passed for 213 yards with one touchdown and another TD run. Losing the head-to-head battle with Young may have been the biggest blow to his Heisman chances. Corral isn’t dead yet though and will get the chance to rebound this week against Arkansas.

Desmond Ridder (+1600) Cincinnati

Ridder joins the Heisman conversation this week after leading Cincinnati past Notre Dame last week. So far this season Ridder has nine touchdown passes to two interception and three more TD runs. More importantly he’s led Cincinnati to an undefeated season so far and has them ranked No. 5 in the nation. One thing that could hurt Ridder in the Heisman race is that Cincinnati’s only other opponent that isn’t a total pushover this season is SMU.

Sept. 28, 2021 Update

Matt Corral (+150) Ole Miss

Ole Miss was on their bye last week so Corral’s stats are the same as they were two weeks ago when the became the bookmakers favorite. That also means he’s had an extra week to prepare for Alabama, who the Rebels face this weekend. If Corral is somehow able to lead the Rebels to a win in Alabama, he’ll become a massive Heisman favorite.

Bryce Young (+300) Alabama

Young led the Crimson Tide to an easy 63-14 win over Southern Miss last week while passing for 313 yards with five touchdowns. With back-to-back tough conference games against Ole Miss and Texas A&M Young will get the chance to separate himself a bit from the other Heisman contenders if he can keep Alabama’s lengthy winning streak going.

JT Daniels (+1400) Georgia

Daniels led Georgia to an easy 62-0 win over Vanderbilt last week, but he sat for a majority of the second half once the game got out of hand. We should find out if Daniels truly belongs in the Heisman conversation in October when Georgia’s schedule gets tougher against Arkansas, Auburn and Florida.

Update Sept. 21, 2021

There was quite the shakeup in the Heisman odds this week after Matt Corral announced himself as the new contender to beat with a dynamic display against Tulane. The season’s far from over yet, and with COVID still hovering, making a bet on an underdog might not be a bad idea right now.

Corral and Young may be running away this thing early.

Odds as of Sept. 21 at FanDuel Sportsbook. 

Matt Corral (+150) Ole Miss

Corral delivered a dominating showing with his arm and his legs last week in the Rebels 61-21 win over Tulane with 335 yards passing and three touchdowns along with 68 rushing yards and four more touchdowns on 13 carries. He gets a breather this week during Ole Miss’ bye week before what could be his most important game of the season against Alabama on Oct. 2.

Bryce Young (+400) Alabama

Young led the Crimson Tide to a too close 31-29 win over Florida last week. Despite the close score Young was strong with 233 yards passing and three touchdowns. He’ll get a cupcake matchup with Southern Miss this weekend to try and pad his stats before the showdown with Ole Miss and Corral a week later.

CJ Stroud (+1600) Ohio State

Stroud gets bumped up to the Top 3 after leaving behind Ohio State’s previous loss to Oregon with a 41-20 win over Tulsa last week. Stroud wasn’t even that great in the win with 185 yards passing with one touchdown and an interception. In some ways his ascension up the odds list is more about what those below him didn’t do last week. He’ll get a chance to prove he belongs this week in what should be a laugher against Akron.

Sept. 13, 2021

The Heisman Trophy race is led by a pair of SEC quarterbacks. The Top 4 on the list are all QBs right now which isn’t surprising considering a QB has won in nine of the last 11 years.

Wide receiver DeVonta Smith broke up a streak of four straight QBs last year, but if the current odds lists from FanDuel means anything, the Heisman may go back to a signal caller again this season.

Bryce Young (+300) Alabama

The Crimson Tide haven’t missed a step on offense with Young taking over at quarterback for Mac Jones. Through two games he’s completed just over 70 percent of his passes for 571 yards with seven touchdowns and zero interceptions. If he can continue that success this week in Alabama’s first real test of the season against Florida, his Heisman odds will only improve.

Matt Corral (+400) Ole Miss

Corral has led Ole Miss to a par of blowout wins to start the season, including a 54-17 romp over Austin Peay last week. The dual threat has passed for 662 yards with six touchdowns and zero interceptions and rushed for 90 yards and a score on 20 carries. Circle October 2 on your calendar as an important date in the Heisman race, with Alabama and Ole Miss set to square off in a battle of the Top 2 Heisman contenders.

Spencer Rattler (+900) Oklahoma

After a too close for comfort win over Tulane in their season opener, Oklahoma got back on track last week with a 76-0 drubbing of Western Carolina. Rattler, who was many experts preseason Heisman pick, has been steady with 547 yards passing with six touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. One thing that could hold Rattler back is the lighter schedule he gets compared to the contenders from the SEC. Going by the current Top 25, Oklahoma doesn’t face a ranked team until last November.

Archived Heisman Trophy Betting Odds article from Jan. 4, 2021

It’s possible the Heisman Trophy could go to a major underdog in a Covid-19-fouled season. That being said, the favorite at the start of the season is the quarterback of the national championship favorite. See college football props and live Heisman Trophy betting odds updates at FanDuel and Draft Kings, official betting partners of the NFL.

Jan. 4, 2021 Update

The Heisman Trophy will be awarded virtually on Tuesday, January 5. That gives you just enough time to get you last bets in on the latest Heisman Trophy odds. Remember when making you picks that votes for the Heisman were handed in no later than December 21. So, don’t take in account any of the recent bowls games when making your Heisman pick, because the voters couldn’t.

DeVonta Smith (-560) Alabama

Smith delivered a dominating season that, according to the oddsmakers, should make him the first wide receiver to win the Heisman since Desmond Howard in 1991. Smith not only led the nation in receiving with 1,641 yards (nearly 500 more than any other player), but he also set Alabama’s all-time receiving record.

Mac Jones (+500) Alabama

In any other season over the last decade Jones would likely be taking home the Heisman after leading Alabama to an undefeated season while putting up some solid numbers. Unfortunately for Jones his teammate Smith outshone him. History is on Jones’ side, as a QB has won the Heisman in 10 of the last 11 seasons, but that also may mean voters are ready and primed to look elsewhere this season.

Trevor Lawrence (+750) Clemson

Lawrence was the Heisman favorite for most of the season. However, missing games due to testing positive for COVID-19 and COVID cancellations effectively cost him his shot at the Heisman. I guess he does still have being draft No. 1 overall in the NFL draft to look forward to. If you consider playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars something to look forward to.

DeVonta Smith -560

Mac Jones +500

Trevor Lawrence +750

Kyle Trask +5000

Dec. 21, 2020 Update

After conference championship week the Heisman Trophy odds were turned upside down thank to an out of this world performance by DeVonta Smith. Could he make history and become the first wide receiver in decades to claim the Heisman?

DeVonta Smith (-200) Alabama

Smith shot to the top of the Heisman odds after helping lead Alabama to a 52-46 win over Florida in the SEC Championship game. Smith hauled in an amazing 15 passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Smith also became Alabama’s all-time leading receiver and this season he leads all receivers in the nation with 1,511 receiving yards. Smith’s performance caused him to jump from +2200 on the Heisman odds a few weeks ago to -200 as he tries to make history as the first wide receiver to win the award.

Mac Jones (+150) Alabama

Jones may have led Alabama to another SEC title but he was outshone by Smith which cost him on the Heisman odds. History is in Jones’ favor, as a quarterback has won the Heisman the last four years and nine of the last 10. Jones does have an impressive resume, with the second most passing yards in college football this season, but he may come up just short to his teammate.

Trevor Lawrence (+1000) Clemson

Lawrence needed to deliver a performance for the ages in the ACC Championship game to have an outside shot at the Heisman. He was solid in Clemson’s win over Notre Dame, but likely not good enough to make up for the time he missed this season due to COVID-19. He’ll still likely be the top pick in the upcoming NFL draft, but Lawrence he won’t be taking home Heisman honors.

DeVonta Smith -200

Mac Jones +150

Trevor Lawrence +1000

Najee Harris +1600

Trask jumps to top of Heisman Race

With only a week remaining until Heisman ballots are distributed the race for the Heisman Trophy is a tight one between a pair of SEC quarterbacks. If you haven’t made your futures picks yet the key dates to know are December 14, when ballots go out, December 21, the voting deadline, December 24, when the finalists are announced, and January 5, when the award will virtually be handed out.

Kyle Trask (-134) Florida

Trask continues to be the favorite while leading the Gators to the top of the SEC East. Last week in a 31-19 win over Tennessee in which the Gators clinched the East, Trask passed for 433 yards with four touchdowns. He’s now second in the nation with 3,243 passing yards and he leads all QBs with 38 touchdown passes.

Mac Jones (+100) Alabama

Don’t count out Jones yet. He could easily steal away the Heisman from Trask at the end of the season. Jones and the undefeated Crimson Tide clinched the SEC West after crushing LSU 55-17 last week. Jones led the way with 385 passing yards and four touchdowns. He’s right behind Trask with 3,113 passing yards and 27 touchdown passes. With Alabama and Florida set to meet up in the SEC Championship game on December 19 whoever comes out on top in that game could be the Heisman winner.

Trevor Lawrence (+1200) Clemson

Lawrence, the preseason Heisman favorite, has likely run out of time and games to have a shot at the Heisman. Clemson’s regular season is over and missing three games will likely cost Lawrence his shot at the Heisman. Lawrence and Clemson will face Notre Dame (the only team to beat them this season) in the ACC title game, but he’d have to put on a historical performance to have a shot at surpassing Trask and Jones.

Nov. 9, 2020 Update

Trevor Lawrence’s positive COVID-19 test has caused quite the shakeup on the Heisman futures odds. Lawrence is falling while Justin Fields and Mac Jones have taken advantage and are now the frontrunners in the race.

Justin Fields (+125) Ohio State

Fields bolstered his Heisman candidacy last week in Ohio State’s 49-27 rout of Rutgers. Fields passed for 314 yards with five touchdown passes and another TD run in the win. He’s now up to 11 touchdown passes to zero interceptions in three games this season. With Ohio State having what looks to be a pretty easy schedule through the Big Ten the rest of the way (other than maybe Indiana), Fields could continue to put up video game type numbers on a regular basis. (Read article on Justin Fields Heisman Trophy push.)

Mac Jones (+150) Alabama

Jones has led Alabama back to the top of the Top 25 rankings and into a prime spot to contend for another national championship. Through six games Jones has passed for 2196 yards with 16 touchdowns and only two interceptions. More importantly he has the Alabama offense rolling as they’ve averaged nearly 50 points per game in their last five games.

Trevor Lawrence (+450) Clemson

A few weeks ago, it looked like Lawrence was cruising toward a Heisman win. He was putting up big numbers while leading the undefeated No. 1 team in the nation. Since then it’s all come crashing down for Lawrence. He’s missed Clemson’s last two games due to COVID-19 and Clemson fell from the No. 1 spot following a loss to Notre Dame. Without a little luck Lawrence’s Heisman chances look bleak.

Kyle Trask (+600) Florida

Trask gave his Heisman contender resume a jolt over the week by leading Florida to a 44-28 win over Georgia. In the win Trask had four touchdown passes and led Florida on a 24-point run that sealed the victory. Trask remains an underdog behind Fields and Jones, but in a season where anything can happen, he may be worth taking a flyer on for the potential profits in case COVID strikes another favorite.

Oct. 26, 2020 Update

Trevor Lawrence continues to distance himself from the rest of the pack on the Heisman Trophy futures. If no one can stop Clemson this season the award could be his to lose.

Trevor Lawrence (-167) Clemson

The Tigers remain undefeated and Lawrence keeps shredding opposing defenses. He’s up to 17 touchdown passes on the season to only two interceptions, with 1,833 passing yards. That’s tops in the ACC and fifth best in the nation right now.

Mac Jones (+250) Alabama

Jones slips past Fields to move into the No. 2 spot on the Heisman futures. Jones has given his Heisman hopes a boost after leading Alabama to back-to-back big wins over Georgia and Tennessee. Jones has passed for an SEC-best 1,905 yards with 12 touchdowns and only two interceptions so far this season.

Justin Fields (+400) Ohio State

Fields has been knocked down to third on the list but considering Ohio State has only played one game it’s way too early to count him out. In the Buckeyes season opener against Nebraska Fields passed for 276 yards with two TD passes, and he also rushed for a team-high 54 yards with a score. Keep an eye on Fields to see what he can do this week against a Penn State squad that was exposed by Indiana last week.

Kyle Trask (+1600) Florida

Moving into the Top 4 as a +1600 underdog this week is Florida Gators’ quarterback Kyle Trask. Last week Florida and Trask had their game against LSU postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. That game will happen in December, which follows important games against Georgia and Tennessee. Trask doesn’t have the yards that other contenders have with only 996 passing yards, but he has thrown 14 touchdown passes to only one interception.

Oct. 13, 2020 Update

For the first time in almost a month there’s one player atop the Heisman odds, after Trevor Lawrence broke away from the pack. His stay atop the odds list could be short-lived once the Big Ten season finally gets started in a  couple weeks.

Trevor Lawrence (+110) Clemson

Lawrence is the lone favorite for the Heisman once again following Clemson’s 42-17 win over Miami last week. He torched the Miami Hurricanes for three touchdown passes and a TD run which throwing for 292 yards in the blowout. On the season Lawrence has now passed for 1,140 yards and 10 touchdowns without a single interception.

Justin Fields (+250) Ohio State

Fields remains locked in at +250 as he awaits Ohio State’s season opener on October 24 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. If Fields lives up to the hype and shreds the Cornhuskers he could supplant Lawrence atop the Heisman odds.

Mac Jones (+500) Alabama

Jones has made a big jump up the Heisman odds from +1200 after leading Alabama to a 3-0 start. Last week in Alabama’s 63-48 win over the Mississippi Rebels Jones passed for 417 yards with a pair of touchdowns. He’s now third in the SEC with 1,101 passing yards and eight touchdowns to one interception this season. He’ll get his biggest test of the season so far this weekend against the Georgia Bulldogs

Stetson Bennett (+1000) Georgia

Speaking of Georgia, their quarterback Stetson Bennett has rocketed up the Heisman odds lately. He currently sits at +1000 despite being pretty much an afterthought for the oddsmakers a few weeks ago at +20,000. Bennett doesn’t have as flashy numbers as Lawrence and Jones, with 689 passing yards and five touchdowns on the season, but he has led the Bulldogs to a 3-0 record. If he can lead them to an upset of Alabama this week his climb up the Heisman contenders list could continue.

Trevor Lawrence +110
Justin Fields +250

Sept 29, 2020 Update

With Trevor Lawrence off last week and Justin Fields still waiting for Ohio State’s first game of the season, nothing has changed atop the Heisman Trophy odds this week. However, the rest of the Top 4 saw a bit of a shake up with Spencer Rattler and Sam Ehlinger both getting knocked out.

Trevor Lawrence (+250) Clemson

Clemson was on a bye week last week after winning their first games of the season while outscoring their opponents 86-13. Lawrence may lead the offense, but in Clemson’s last game he spent the second half on the sideline of a 49-0 blowout. After two cupcake matchups to start the season Lawrence will get to prove how worthy he is of the Heisman once Clemson faces some real competition.

Justin Fields (+250) Ohio State

Bettors continue to play the waiting game with Fields, who won’t take the field for the first time with Ohio State this season until October 24. After he finished third in the Heisman voting last season, bettors know what to expect from Fields. Can e live up to that while facing an all Big Ten schedule in this season flipped on its head by COVID-19?

Kyle Trask (+500) Florida

Trask makes the leap into the Heisman contender conversation after sitting at +1800 odds a week ago. In Florida’s season opener last week Trask torched Mississippi for 416 passing yards and six touchdowns. Trask will get the chance to prove he belongs among the Heisman contenders this season with some tough road games against Texas A&M, Georgia and Tennessee,

KJ Costello (+800) Mississippi State

Costello also caught the oddsmakers attention last week which vaulted him up to +800 from +3300 on the Heisman odds. In his first game with Mississippi State, after transferring from Stanford, he led them to a 44-34 upset win over LSU as a 14.5-point underdog. In the win he passed for 623 yards with five touchdowns. Costello will get the chance to lead Mississippi State to several upsets this season as they’ve got a tough schedule which includes dates with Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Texas A&M.

Trevor Lawrence +250

Sept 21, 2020 Update

The return of the Big Ten made a big change in the Heisman Trophy odds this week, as there’s a new co-favorite along side mainstay Trevor Lawrence.

Trevor Lawrence (+250) Clemson

Lawrence delivered some big numbers last week against Citadel, but his Heisman odds actually worsened thanks to the Big Ten deciding to play. Last week Lawrence was a +175 favorite, but he’s now dropped to +250 and has to share the favorite slot. Against Citadel Lawrence played sparingly since it was a blowout from the start, and he completed 8-of-9 passes for 168 yards with three touchdown passes and a TD run.

Justin Fields (+250) Ohio State

Ohio State’s fall season is back on and that means quarterback Justin Fields has entered the Heisman conversation and is a co-favorite with Lawrence at +250. Last season Fields finished third in Heisman voting behind Joe Burrow and Jalen Hurts, who have both moved on to the NFL. Ohio State will begin their season on October 24 at home to Nebraska.

Spencer Rattler (+600) Oklahoma

Oklahoma was off last week and it cost Rattler a bit on the Heisman odds as he dropped from +400 to +600. Fields entering the race also likely contributed to that drop. Rattler will have the chance to impress this week as Oklahoma takes on a winless Kansas State who allowed 35 points to Arkansas State last time out.

Sam Ehlinger (+1000)

Ehlinger also saw his Heisman odds drop this week, as he fell from +600 to +1000. Ehlinger also got a rest last week during Texas’ early bye week. He’ll get a bigger test this week when Texas faces Teas Tech on the road.

Sept 14, 2020 Update

Trevor Lawrence’s odds improved following a strong debut in Clemson’s opener. The biggest change in the Heisman odds this week is Sam Ehlinger, who vaulted up to third spot on the odds list with a dominating performance.

Trevor Lawrence (+175) Clemson

Lawrence didn’t deliver a dominating performance in Clemson’s season-opening win over Wake Forest with only one touchdown pass. However, he did keep the Tigers’ offense moving while completing 22-of-28 passes for 351 yards. The oddsmakers gave him a slight bump up to +175 after he sat at +200 last week.

And if there was any doubt about his intentions for next season, he put them to rest here.

Spencer Rattler (+400) Oklahoma

Rattler made the jump to +400 on the odds list from +700 after leading Oklahoma to a 48-0 blowout win over Missouri State in their season opener. Rattler only played the first half in the dominating win but still put up impressive numbers with 290 yards passing and four touchdowns.

Sam Ehlinger (+600)

Ehlinger announced his presence in the Heisman race by leading Texas to a 59-3 win over UTEP in their season opener. Ehlinger was listed at +2500 before that win, which catapulted him up to +600. Against UTEP Ehlinger passed for 426 yards and five touchdowns.

JT Daniels (+1000) Georgia

Daniels remains at +1000 for another as he awaits Georgia’s season-opener on September 26. The late start will give Daniels a little more time in his recovery from a torn ACL which remains a big question mark in his first season in Georgia.

Sept 10, 2020 Update

Trevor Lawrence (+200) Clemson

Leading Clemson, the No. 1 team in the nation, will give Lawrence the spotlight he needs to challenge for the Heisman. Now he just needs to back it up on the field. That shouldn’t be a problem as Clemson boasts one of the top offenses in college football and Lawrence’s stats should be massive. Winning a national championship would be a boon to his chances as well.

Spencer Rattler (+700) Oklahoma

Rattler’s odds have improved already, up from +900  few weeks ago. The Oklahoma QB leads a Sooners squad that should be in the running for a sixth straight conference title. With Oklahoma’s toughest games this season all at home Rattler is a serious breakout candidate.

D’Eriq King (+800) Miami

King is also on the rise on the odds list, up from +1400. After transferring in from Houston, King boasts play-making ability with his arm and his legs that could lead to big numbers and big wins in Miami.

JT Daniels (+1000) Georgia

Daniels make the leap into the Heisman contender pool this week at +1000. He’s coming off an injury-shortened season at USC last year after tearing his ACL. The injury cost him the starting job which resulted in his transfer to Georgia. He’ll be leading a talented offense in Georgia, but how will he knee hold up when he sees his first game action in over a year?

Sept. 1. 2020 Heisman Update

Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields would sit near the top of this 2020 Heisman Trophy odds board, but since the Big Ten won’t happen, his chances are pretty remote. Instead, its another stellar young QB who has been atop this list for more than a year already.

Trevor Lawrence (+200) Clemson

The projected first overall pick in 2021 will enter the season as prohibitive odds to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy at +200. Clemson has won five straight ACC titles and are the heavy favorites to win it this year. With a favorable schedule, Trevor Lawrence’s stats should be insane and he enjoys the bonus of lining up beside star RB Travis Etienne. This offense could explode, Lawrence’s stats will be gaudy, Heisman voters won’t be able to help themselves.

Spencer Rattler (+900) Oklahoma

Like Clemson, Oklahoma has claimed five straight conference titles. Head Coach Lincoln Riley established himself as one of the best coaches in the country, and his young QB Spencer Rattler should thrive under his tutelage. Spencer was a 5-star recruit out of high school and many project him as a breakout star in 2020.

Heisman Trophy Betting Odds

Best of the Heisman Rest

D’Eriq King (+1400) Miami

After a disappointing season that saw the Hurricanes go 6-7, Houston transfer D’Eriq King will look to restore Miami’s place among the NCAA football elite. King red-shirted last season after a terrific 2018 season. His small stature could scare you from this 14-1 future bet, but don’t underestimate him. He reminds many of Arizona QB Kyler Murray with his quickness, elusiveness and agility. He will  be on everyone’s radar come the end of the 2020 season, its just a question of whether you bet him at 14-1 or later at shorter odds.

Myles Brennan (+1400) LSU

To say Myles Brennan has big shoes to fill would be an understatement. He will take the reins from Joe Burrow who had arguably the best college quarterback season of all time. Brennan played well in mop-up duty last year, and he has all the physical tools to succeed at LSU. The SEC should be more competitive this season, and this could hurt his chances for Heisman Trophy votes. Conversely if he excels against brutal SEC competition, his Heisman Trophy future line will shrink.

2020 Heisman Trophy Prediction

Trevor Lawrence should dominate next season and is definitely the smart pick here at +200. If you are looking for a solid value bet, look no further than D’Eriq King at +1400. He has breakout star potential.
