The college football season is still months away, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to look at Heisman Trophy odds. Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler is the odds-on favorite to win the Heisman Trophy on William Hill Sportsbook right now, but it’s far too early to know exactly what might happen next year.
“Rattler is the worthy favorite,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “Obviously [Oklahoma head coach Lincoln] Riley is a quarterback guru, and that offense will have lots of firepower. He looked really good down the stretch and he’ll have another year in that system, which always helps.”
Rattler is trailed by two young quarterbacks who will become starters in 2021. D.J. Uiagalelei, who made two starts while Trevor Lawrence recovered from COVID-19, will start full-time for Clemson next season. He’s neck and neck at +650 odds with Alabama’s incoming quarterback, Bryce Young .
“The offensive systems are so good and the talent around them is so good, that they’re bound to succeed,” Bogdanovich said. “It’s also a boost when their team has a good shot of finishing undefeated in the regular season. They’re five-star recruits, people know about them, they were great high-school players, so even without much playing time, they’re priced about right.”
Latest 2021 Heisman Trophy Odds
Trying to pick a Heisman Trophy winner this far out can be like throwing darts blindfolded. There are usually surprise candidates who emerge out of nowhere like Joe Burrow at LSU two years ago.
However, that means now is the time for bettors to get the best odds on those out-of-nowhere Heisman Trophy winners. Bijan Robinson of Texas (+2500) and Iowa State’s Brock Purdy (+3000) are two guys who could make some noise in 2021.
