Latest Bovada Heisman odds for 2014 season, six SEC players included

NCAA Football: Georgia at Georgia Tech

Bovada Sportsbook unveiled their latest Heisman odds, and six SEC players are listed.

Among them, Georgia running back Todd Gurley is listed as the SEC’s favorite with the fifth best odds at 12/1, while three other running backs join him in Alabama’s TJ Yeldon (14/1), South Carolina’s Mike Davis (18/1) and Alabama’s Derrick Henry (20/1).

Quarterbacks Nick Marshall and Dak Prescott are also included in the list, with Marshall having 20/1 odds and Prescott having 33/1 odds.

If we’ve learned anything over the last several years, this is a quarterback award, and Nick Marshall probably has the best chance among any SEC player known entering the season.

  • What will Heisman voters do? You can be sure they will vote for an outlaw before they vote for a role model, embarassing for football, even worse for college football. If Heisman voters don’t have the common sense to protect the sport the award celebrates then the reality tv show is something like hoarders, or biggest loser, etc.. The idea that an individual should be singled out in a team game is a debate anyway, so a voter sure can’t defend voting for someone who doesn’t defend their sport in every way. It’s time for the NCAA to step in and create a more legit award where the candidates are selected by asking what teams cooperate the best to make individual players look for like game winners, or what teams are so devoid of teamwork and talent that an individual player has to carry the team more often. Jamis Winston sure wasn’t a Heisman trophy winner if he had played for any other team in the NCAA. Johnny Manziel is a contrast? Look at previous years winners and ask the same question. Then look at Vanderbilt’s or Syracuse’s great receivers of recent years or Georgia’s All-American linebacker or numerous other players who would be great on any roster and many of which were good citizens and students. Hey sportswriter/voters, this is college football, did you go to college?

  • No respect to Arkansas running backs

    • As we’ve come to realize, the Heisman is a popularity contest of the best player on the country’s best team. Now, put Alex Collins or Jonathan Williams on a top 25 caliber preseason team (no disrespect to Arkansas), they’re getting more love and hype.

      • Understandable, they should focus on the skill of the player more than the team that they are on. However I strongly believe that Arkansas will surprise quite a few people this year.

  • I am an Alabama fan and still believe Marcus Mariota deserves the Heisman. I believe he is much better than Winston and has stats that blow away any chances an Alabama RB might have. Yeldon or Henry would have to have 1900 yards from scrimmage and 15+ TDs to even remotely have a chance.
