As you may have guessed already, the standings for this year’s Heisman betting odds have remained unchanged, at least at the top few slots anyway. Tua Tagovailoa enters week 10 as the ongoing favorite to win the award this year. He has completed over 70 percent of his passes on the season and has thrown for over 2,000 yards along with 25 touchdowns.
In addition, he is not only yet to throw an interception but has also added over 100 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns on the ground this season. Tagovailoa will face his toughest test of the season, however, in Week 10 as the Crimson Tide head to Baton Rouge to take on LSU who has arguably the nation’s best defense.
Tua enters week 10 with -275 odds to win the Heisman this year.
Hot on the trail, however, is Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray who has continued to dazzle as he enters week 10 with +333 odds to take home this year’s trophy. Murray has posted comparable stats to Tagovailoa, also completing over 70 percent of his passes for over 2300 yards and 28 touchdowns. Murray has thrown three interceptions but has contributed over 400 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns on the ground.
While these numbers would suggest that this race should be closer, it should also be noted that Tagovailoa has barely taken a fourth-quarter snap this season, which can be attributed to the dominance of his Crimson Tide team.
Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins remains in the number three spot with +900 odds and is accompanied by Michigan’s Shea Patterson (+1200) and Clemson’s Travis Etienne to round out the top 5. Etienne, making his first appearance in the top 5 this season, enters this week with +1600 odds to win the Heisman.
