The folks over at Bovada have once again been kind enough to send over their current Heisman Trophy odds.
Florida State Seminoles’ quarterback Jameis Winston still holds a large lead, but his odds also continue to shrink. Winston had another fantastic game – he completed 14-of-25 passes for 225 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions in an 80-14 victory over the Idaho Vandals. On the season, the redshirt freshman is now 199-of-286 for 3,163 yards with 35 total touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron is now in the second spot because of losses by Johnny Manziel’s Texas A&M Aggies and Bryce Petty’s Baylor Bears. McCarron has passed for just 2,399 yards and 23 touchdowns, but his team is 11-0.
Pundits are finally paying attention to Boston College Eagles’ running back Andre Williams, who has 2,073 yards and 16 touchdowns on 320 carries.
Ohio State Buckeyes’ quarterback Braxton Miller is back on the list. He’s been absent since two games in September. Miller’s Buckeyes are 11-0 and he’s completed 132-of-195 passes for 1,626 yards with 19 touchdowns and four interceptions. He’s also rushed for 738 yards and five touchdowns on 116 attempts.
After throwing for 522 yards and seven touchdowns in a 69-28 victory the New Mexico Lobos, Fresno State Bulldogs’ quarterback Derek Carr also joins the list with 20/1 odds to win. Like four of the top five contenders (and five of the top seven when you include North Illinois Huskies’ quarterback Jordan Lynch, who also joined the list this week), Carr’s Bulldogs are unbeaten.
