Now, it seems as if he’s the favorite to land the starting quarterback job for the Crimson Tide, and the Heisman odds certainly reflect that.
Even with zero career starts, Tagovailoa now has the best odds to win the Heisman Trophy, per an update from LV SuperBook:

Other SEC players mentioned are Georgia QB Jake Fromm (20-1), Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham (25-1), Mizzou QB Drew Lock (30-1) and Georgia RB D’Andre Swift (30-1).
However, according to Vegas, this is now Tagovailoa’s award to lose, even though he hasn’t even won Alabama’s starting job yet.
