Bovada's updated 2014 Heisman odds feature 23 players
Bovada has updated its odds for the 2014 Heisman Trophy to include 23 players, and a defensive player is among them.
Now that signing day is over you can argue that the 2014 college football season has officially begun, as spring practices are only a month away. And it wouldn't be a college football season without wondering who will win the Heisman Trophy, would it?
Well, Bovada has updated its odds for the 2014 winner. The site's original board only included 15 players, but it's now up to 23, including UCLA linebacker/running back/destroyer of worlds Myles Jack who checks in at 33/1.
Here is the complete list.
Jameis Winston (QB Florida State) 12/5
Marcus Mariota (QB Oregon) 5/1
Braxton Miller (QB Ohio State) 11/2
Bryce Petty (QB Baylor) 9/1
Todd Gurley (RB Georgia) 12/1
Brett Hundley (QB UCLA) 14/1
T.J. Yeldon (RB Alabama) 14/1
Melvin Gordon (RB Wisconsin) 16/1
Connor Cook (QB Michigan State) 18/1
Mike Davis (RB South Carolina) 18/1
Everett Golson (Notre Dame) 22/1
Ameer Abdullah (RB Nebraska) 25/1
Derrick Henry (RB Alabama) 25/1
Sean Mannion (QB Oregon State) 25/1
Taylor Kelly (QB Arizona State) 25/1
Trevor Knight (QB Oklahoma) 25/1
Dak Prescott (QB Mississippi State) 33/1
Duke Johnson (RB Miami) 33/1
Karlos Williams (RB Florida State) 33/1
Myles Jack (LB UCLA) 33/1
Nick Marshall (QB Auburn) 33/1
Matt Johnson (QB Bowling Green) 66/1
Rakeem Cato (QB Marshall) 66/1
I'll just say that while Jameis Winston has the best odds he's also the least likely to win the award in reality. Heisman voters just don't reward the same player two seasons in a row, so unless Winston has a transcendant season, the likes of which we've never seen from a player before, he's not going to win.
Personally I think Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott is a very good value here, as is Alabama's Derrick Henry.
