An extremely interesting tidbit is the fact that Texas quarterback Casey Thompson is actually second among total dollars wagered with 15% of the entire pot despite the fact he’s currently +2000 to win the award. Thompson threw just 17 passes last year but conjured up 225 yards and a whopping six touchdowns in the process. He’s expected to be the successor to now-former Longhorn quarterback Sam Ehlinger.
Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud is another intriguing name on the list and possesses the lowest odds of the above individuals at +4000. Yet, he’s responsible for 4% of the Heisman bets.
Stroud could indeed be a decent value pick right now at +4000 ($100 to earn a profit of $4000 if the bet was to hit) — Justin Fields found great success in Ryan Day’s system each of the last two seasons before entering the NFL.
A name not on the list that could additionally be a decent value pick is Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei, who’s +770 on William Hill Sportsbook at the moment.
Uiagalelei completed 66.7% of his throws for 915 yards, five touchdowns, and zero picks in nine games for the Tigers last year and additionally rushed for four scores. Given the talent Clemson usually fields on either side of the ball along with a superb coaching staff led by none other than Dabo Swinney, Uiagalelei should be in a great situation to portray his skills like the ever-impressive Trevor Lawrence was.
