The 2018 Heisman Trophy Odds: What are the best bets, top longshots, and what are the best values?
The latest 2018 Heisman Trophy Odds are out from the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook. Who’ll win, what are the best longshots, and what’s the best value?
Always take The Field.
Baker Mayfield was a gettable pick before last season began, but Lamar Jackson came out of left field – or, at least, just outside of the infield – to win two years ago.
This season, considering it’s usually a quarterback-driven honor, the race is more wide open than ever.
But here’s the problem, IT’S REALLY HARD TO WIN THE HEISMAN. The NFL is loaded with Hall of Fame talents who couldn’t even become finalists, much less win the thing. So remembering that this only works if the player WINS it …
Just … Don’t
You’re not crazy. The Heisman race can always get a bit funky, and all of these players have the upside to have big seasons. But when it comes to the Heisman, just … don’t.
Jalen Hurd, WR Baylor 300/1
Jake Bentley, QB South Carolina, 100/1

These guys are more like finalists than true contenders – there are way too many barriers in the way to get over the hump and actually win it. However, again, sometimes the longshot really does come through in this race.
