Let’s get all of the disclaimers out of the way; Coronavirus is a very serious illness that should not be taken lightly. In the grand scheme of things sports are secondary and the public’s health is the priority. Stay at home. Do your part. Let’s beat this thing.
That being said, you can get a hell of a price on Mac Jones to win the Heisman.
Pandemic or not, sports betting never stops. Numbers fluctuate and odds change. You may like a number today that you couldn’t dream of getting when football season comes back around. Here’s your top 22:
- Trevor Lawrence +275
- Justin Fields +400
- D’Eriq King +1000
- Spencer Rattler +1100
- Chuba Hubbard +1200
- Sam Ehlinger +1200
- Jamie Newman +1300
- Kyle Trask +1400
- Sam Howell +2000
- Bo Nix +2200
- Ian Book +2500
- Kedon Slovis +2500
- Mac Jones +2800
- Myles Brennan +2800
- Najee Harris +2800
- Kellen Mond +4000
- Adrian Martinez +6000
- KJ Costello +6000
- Tanner Morgan +6000
- Micale Cunningham +10000
- Rondale Moore +10000
- Kenneth Gainwell +12500
Nine of the last 10 Heisman winners have been quarterbacks. The lone outcast goes by the name of Derrick Henry. So don’t be a dummy and put something on Hubbard or Najee Harris.
Trevor Lawrence (+275) is the betting favorite but I don’t like the number. Clemson will be one of the best teams in the country again, but so many things can happen in the course of a season and if the season is shortened due to the virus it hurts Lawrence. He’ll be the number one pick but I’m going elsewhere for Heisman betting.
I like Justin Fields (+400). Call it a homer pick and you’d probably be correct. You know what Ohio State is going to do. They’re going to shit stomp teams for the majority of the season and lose once on the road, in a night game to a team they should beat. Then they’ll cunt punt Michigan and whoever wins the West. It’ll be sweaty palms to see if they get into the CFP. But Fields is a stud and I like him at 4:1.
Couldn’t pick a better spot to be if you’re Spencer Rattler (+1100). Oklahoma signal callers win Heisman trophies and go on to be mediocre NFL quarterbacks. That’s the trajectory. I’m not betting on or against anybody that I haven’t seen play. Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts were pretty good, so they’re due for a dud in Norman.
Down the list a little is Sam Ehlinger (+1200). I just wanted to mention him because, to Earl Campbell’s chagrin, Ehlinger is still white. We didn’t talk about Earl Campbell’s racism enough. Anyways, Texas isn’t back and Ehlinger’s not in the Heisman picture.
A couple sophomores in Bo Nix (+2200) and Kedon Slovis (+2500) are a year or two away from being relevant in this dicussion. Nix started off last year hotter than Jerusalem but fell off after that Auburn game. Slovis deep dicked teams like UCLA and Cal but couldn’t beat anybody worth a damn. And for that reason, I’m out.
Ian Book (+2500). Fucking pass.
Mac Jones (+2800) has value. Alabama is going to be good and you can’t win the Heisman on a shit team, unless you’re Lamar Jackson. His name screams SEC quarterback. Think about a little sprinkled sprinkle on 28:1.
I honestly don’t know how Kellen Mond (+4000) made this list. He sucks. He’s a bad quarterback. Zero bad quarterbacks have ever won the Heisman. Take that for data.
Adrian Martinez (+6000) has to be 63 years old. He’s more likely to break a hip than win the Heisman.
KJ Costello (+6000) is going to throw the ball a zillion times in Mike Leach’s offense. Do I think he’s going to win the Heisman? No. Do I think he’ll be fun to watch? Maybe.
