Dak Prescott has 50/1 Odds to Win the Heisman

Sports betting website Bovada released their updated odds for potential Heisman winners. MSU's signal caller made the list.

Here's an abbreviated version of the list. Included are the top five players and every candidate from the SEC:


A few observations:

-Of course Jameis Winston has the best odds to win the Heisman. Anybody would have a pretty good chance at the Heisman if they were the quarterback of a team who's toughest game is against Clemson.

-Marcus Mariota will probably have a great year but after Oregon's annual loss to Stanford he'll drop out of the race.

-Let's be honest here, I probably have a better chance to win the Heisman than Braxton Miller.

-Baylor averages like 4,890 yards of offense in every game, so Bryce Petty will have the numbers to win the Heisman. But as a QB in the Big 12 he won't have many chances for the ever-important "signature win."

-If anyone in the Pac 12 is going to win the Heisman this year it won't be Brett Hundley.

-Todd Gurley is a probably the best running back in the nation but this award always goes to a quarterback or the running back from Alabama.

-There are two running backs from Alabama on the list.

-Dak Prescott has a 50/1 chance to win the Heisman. Those aren't great odds, but at least he's getting the recognition he deserves.

-Jacob Coker has completed a grand total of 21 passes in his whole career as a college quarterback. He's on the list solely because he's Alabama's QB. I guess this shouldn't be surprising considering AJ "Game-Manager" McCarron somehow came in second in last year's Heisman race.
