Updated Heisman odds posted at Bovada

By Adam Kramer   May. 21, 2013

The online book Bovada has updated their Heisman odds, and the group at the top appears slightly more defined.

Johnny Manziel is indeed your favorite, taking slight chalk honors over Braxton Miller. No surprise there, especially when you look at Ohio State’s schedule. The group at 12/1 is certainly interesting, with Teddy Bridgewater (on the topic of schedules) sharing honors with Aaron Murray, De’Anthony Thomas and T.J. Yeldon. Thomas and Yeldon are fascinating, although ample touches are the primary concern for both.

Perhaps more interesting, however, is the group at 14/1. Miami back Duke Johnson - the best player nobody is really talking about – gets some Heisman love, as does Jadeveon Clowney at this same price. Both are very solid bets, and this is unprecedented Heisman odds for a defender to start the season. To put it in perspective, Tyrann Mathieu opened at 50/1 after he came up just short of winning the award (and before, well, we never got to see him at the college level again).

The best value on the board comes right below Clowney, however. Tajh Boyd at 16/1 and Marcus Mariota at 18/1? Yes please.
