2014-15 Heisman Odds

Bovada released their first Heisman odds for the 2014-15 College Football season back in January and to nobody’s surprise Florida State QB Jameis Winston was the favorite to repeat as the nation’s most outstanding player.

Despite his off-season run-in with the law (Winston was cited for shoplifting crab legs), it appears the 6’4″ gunslinger will not be disciplined by the NCAA and his future price remains unchanged.

Pac-12 quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Brett Hundley, both of whom surprised NFL scouts by opting to return to school instead of declaring for the draft, are also expected to compete for this coveted prize.

The table below compares the Heisman odds at Bovada, BetOnline, Sportsbook.com, the Greek and 5Dimes and will be updated as other sportsbooks begin to post their odds.

Bettors should be warned that many Heisman winners emerge from nowhere, and therefore did not have odds available prior to the start of the season. Mark Ingram, who won the award in 2009, was not listed an option until Week 4. One of the most dramatic cases involves Johnny Manziel who, as a redshirt freshman, was not expected by many to earn the starting job. He ended up capturing the attention of the entire nation, but didn’t emerge as an option for Heisman betting until more than halfway through the season.

The table below shows the past winners of this award along with their odds and the first week that they were available as an option. (via SportsOddsHistory.com)
