Updated Heisman odds list 3 SEC players among top 10
The latest Heisman Trophy odds have removed players from conferences not scheduled to play this fall, like the Big 10 and Pac-12. So that leaves an even healthier representation of SEC players receiving odds.
BetOnline.ag has released the odds with Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler with the lowest odds at 2/1 and 9/1. Lawrence has long been the favorite this season, but Oklahoma has a strong recent history with players in the mix to win the Heisman, and LSU, of course, has the reigning winner in Joe Burrow.
Miami’s D’Eriq King and Texas’ Sam Ehlinger are each listed at 14/1. Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard, Notre Dame’s Ian Book and North Carolina’s Sam Howell are all 20/1.
Much of this centers on which quarterback can successfully take the reins from an established winner, be it after Jake Fromm at Georgia, Burrow at LSU, or even Tua Tagovailoa at Alabama. Or, could the players leading teams that aren’t the favorite to win their respective divisions, Bo Nix and Kyle Trask for example, pick up the trophy on the way to other postseason hardware?
For some perspective, and possibly money management, consider that only 3 non-quarterbacks have won the Heisman since the turn of the century: Southern Cal RB Reggie Bush, and Alabama RBs Mark Ingram and Derrick Henry.
Here are all of the SEC players:
Myles Brennan, LSU – 14/1
Jamie Newman, Georgia – 16/1
Mac Jones, Alabama – 16/1
Bo Nix, Auburn- 25/1
Kyle Trask, Florida – 25/1
Najee Harris, Alabama – 30/1
Bryce Young, Alabama – 50/1
Devonta Smith, Alabama – 50/1
Ja’Marr Chase, LSU – 50/1
Kylin Hill, Mississippi State – 60/1
Jaylen Waddle, Alabama – 66/1
Derek Stingley Jr., LSU – 100/1
Trey Sanders, Alabama – 100/1
Zamir White, Georgia – 100/1
