Heisman Trophy odds are on the board at BetDSI with Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa a slight favorite over Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence.

The only other player listed at single-digit odds is former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts who is now at Oklahoma. He is listed at odds of +800.

The two favorites are Tua and Lawrence, and it should come as no surprise, as they were two of the top quarterbacks in the country last season. Tua was actually a big favorite for most of the season to win last year’s award but then he got hurt in the SEC Championship and Murray surged past him. Tua has a lot of talented players around him including Jerry Jeudy.
Lawrence was the star for Clemson last season in the National Championship Game and he led the Tigers to an undefeated season. He could win the Heisman this season, as Clemson should be favored in every game this season. He also has a lot of weapons around him and there is no reason he won’t have another great season.
Hurts transferred from Alabama to Oklahoma and he goes into an offense that has produced the last two Heisman winners in Murray and Baker Mayfield. It is not out of the question that Hurts can succeed in Lincoln Riley’s system, but it should be noted that Hurts is not as good as either Murray or Mayfield. He simply doesn’t throw the ball as effectively, and the odds of +600 on Hurts could be too low.
You can throw a number of players into this category as potential dark horses. Justin Fields takes over at quarterback at Ohio State and he could put up big numbers this season, as he is a dual-threat quarterback. D’Andre Swift was a popular choice last season, but there is probably too much overall talent at Georgia for Swift to score enough TDs to get into the conversation. Jonathan Taylor is also listed at +1500.
Justin Herbert at Oregon, but the Ducks are rarely on TV, doubtful Herbert will get enough attention to win the Heisman. Travis Etienne plays in the same offense with Lawrence at Clemson and won't get Heisman attention. Same for Jake Fromm at Georgia.
Adrian Martinez at Nebraska is worth considering. He had a good first season under Scott Frost and a lot of people are predicting big things for the Cornhuskers this season.
Others to keep an eye on are Ian Book, Sam Ehlinger, and Jerry Jeudy. Ehlinger is the most promising as he had 25 TDs and just five interceptions a year ago and he also ran for 16 TDs.
