USC’s Sam Darnold remains Bovada’s Heisman betting favorite

0 Comments

Not surprisingly, the wagering favorite for one of the most storied awards in sports remains unchanged.

Back in January, Bovada.lv installed USC quarterback Sam Darnold as a 9/1 favorite to win the 2017 Heisman Trophy; a month later, those odds shortened to 4/1.  Tuesday, the same wagering establishment released its updated Heisman odds, with Darnold remaining a 4-1 favorite.

Up next this time around, however, is Saquon Barkley at 7/1.  In February, the Penn State running back was at 12/1 and behind four other players.

After that, it’s Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield at 15/2 (he was 13/2 in Feb.), Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett at 8/1 (12/1) and Louisville quarterback and reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson at 8/1 (13/2).

No other positions other than quarterbacks and running backs were listed.
