Jameis Winston tops Bovada Heisman Trophy odds


The 2014 college football season is little more than two months away, and with that, buzz about potential Heisman Trophy candidates is beginning to heat up. Last year’s winner, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, is the “obvious” choice as the favorite to follow up his performance with another award, and Bovada recently posted their full odds, leaving Winston as the prohibitive favorite.

Here are the top  to take home the award, courtesy of Bovada:

  • Jameis Winston (QB, FSU) — 3/1
  • Marcus Mariota (QB, Oregon) — 11/2
  • Braxton Miller (QB, Ohio State) — 6-1
  • Bryce Petty (QB ,Baylor) — 10/1
  • Todd Gurley (RB, Georgia) — 12/1
  • Brett Hundley (QB, UCLA) — 14/1
  • Everett Golson (QB, Notre Dame) — 14/1
  • T.J. Yeldon (RB, Alabama) — 16/1
  • Melvin Gordon (RB, Wisconsin) — 18/1
  • Nick Marshall (QB, Auburn) — 20/1
  • Trevor Knight (QB, Oklahoma) — 20/1
  • Derrick Henry (RB, Alabama) — 25/1
  • Mike Davis (RB, South Carolina) — 25/1
  • Connor Cook (QB, Michigan State) — 28/1
  • Ameer Abdullah (RB, Nebraska) — 33/1
  • Duke Johnson (RB, Miami) — 33/1
  • Karlos Williams (RB, FSU) — 33/1
  • Myles Jack (LB, UCLA) — 33/1
  • Sean Mannion (QB, Oregon State) — 33/1
  • Taylor Kelly (QB, Arizona State) — 33/1
  • Dak Prescott (QB Mississippi State) — 40/1
  • Matt Johnson (QB, Bowling Green) — 66/1
  • Rakeem Cato (QB, Marshall) — 66/1

Much like NFL.com’s list from Mike Huguenin, the “usual suspects” fall in line behind Winston. Oregon quarterback Both Marcus Mariota and Braxton Miller present dual threat capabilities from a highly visible position on a potential National Championship contender, while players like Bryce Petty and Todd Gurley could potentially bring eye-popping statistics if all goes according to plan.

It is never too early to discuss the upcoming college football campaign, and with some big name players returning for another run, there should be no shortage of story lines.
