When thinking about a new College Football season, it doesn’t take too long before we arrive at the question of who will win Heisman Trophy. The top individual prize in college football that every player vies for before they ascend to the NFL.

In the College Football betting landscape, Clemson and Alabama are once again the cream of the crop, compared to the rest of the field. The perennial favorites for the National Championship for the past 5-10 years, including the 2019-2020 season.

The Clemson and Alabama quarterbacks are also the top favorites for the most illustrious award in the sport, Trevor Lawrence and Tua Tagovailoa, respectively.

Latest Heisman Trophy Odds

FanDuel Sportsbook recently released their odds for the Heisman Trophy favorites:

Trevor Lawrence +175
Tua Tagovailoa +225
Jalen Hurts +1400
Justin Fields +1400
Jake Fromm +1800
Jonathan Taylor +1800
Adrian Martinez +2000
D’Andre Swift +2200
Travis Etienne +2200
Justin Herbert +2500
Sam Ehlinger +2800
Ian Book +4000
Jerry Jeudy +4000
Shea Patterson +4000
Najee Harris +4000
Tee Higgins +5000
K.J. Costello +6000
Rondale Moore +6000
Khalil Tate +6000
J.K Dobbins +6000
Tate Martell +6000
AJ Dillon +6000
JT Daniels +6600
Jacob Eason +6600
Austin Kendall +8000
Kelly Bryant +8000
Eno Benjamin +8000
Brandon Wimbush +8000
Kellen Mond +10000
Alan Bowman +10000

While Lawrence and Tagovailoa are the top favorites, it’s clear Lawrence is the runaway favorite, at +200 compared to Tagovailoa at +350.

That’s with good reason, though. Lawrence, as a true freshman, threw for nearly 3300 yards, 30 touchdowns and just a mere four interceptions (including bowl games). Trevor completed nearly 66 percent of his throws in what was an absolute demolition of a National Championship game that saw Clemson beat Alabama 44-16.

With that said, Tagovailoa isn’t totally out of the hunt, either. Remember, he threw for nearly 4000 yards, 43 touchdowns and six interceptions (including bowl games).

Tagovailoa, had an additional five touchdowns on the ground.

Heisman Value With Justin Herbert or Jalen Hurts?

Justin Herbert at 20/1 is intriguing, but he took a bit of a step back last season. This year, however, he’ll look to improve on his stock with Oregon as he’ll go on to the NFL after this season.

With all of that said, the dark horse in all of this is Jalen Hurts at 20/1. Now the quarterback for Oklahoma, Hurts was supplanted from his role as Alabama’s starter by Tagovailoa.

Hurts is entering a program that has had back-to-back Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. Head coach Lincoln Riley has a wonderful spread system that could really assist in help Hurts flourish. That, coupled with what has to be considered a revenge factor, Hurts could ball out no problem in 2019 and steal the honors.

When it comes down to it, Lawrence is the guy to beat here. Doing what he did as a true freshman, including against an Alabama team that allowed less than 180 passing yards to opposing quarterbacks is something otherworldly. He’ll only improve on that and it would not be at all surprising to see him smash a bunch of records.

Prediction: Trevor Lawrence (2/1), followed by Tua Tagovailoa (7/2) and Jalen Hurts (20/1).
