Pair of Buckeyes on Initial 2018 Heisman Odds from Bovada

J.K. Dobbins Ohio State Football Buckeyes


The 2017 Heisman Trophy was awarded to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield about six weeks ago or so, which means it is now time to start worrying about the 2018 edition of college football’s most well-known media award.

Thanks to a tweet from Ralph Russo of the Associated Press on Tuesday, the non-betting world was made aware that betting site Bovada had released the odds on the 2018 Heisman Trophy. Of possible personal interest to Ohio State fans, Buckeyes J.K. Dobbins and Nick Bosa are two bets they are currently taking. Dobbins has the fifth-best odds at 12/1, while Nick Bosa has the worst odds of the 23 names listed at 75/1.

Here are all 23 players and their respective odds as of Tuesday afternoon.

Bryce Love (RB Stanford) 7/1

Johnathan Taylor (RB Wisconsin) 8/1

Khalil Tate (QB Arizona) 9/1

Tua Tagovailoa (QB Alabama) 10/1

J.K. Dobbins (RB Ohio State) 12/1

Jake Fromm (QB Georgia) 12/1

Jarrett Stidham (QB Auburn) 12/1

Will Grier (QB West Virginia) 12/1

Justin Herbert (QB Oregon) 15/1

Kelly Bryant (QB Clemson) 15/1

McKenzie Milton (QB UCF) 18/1

Trace McSorley (QB Penn State) 18/1

Cam Akers (RB Florida State) 22/1

Jake Browning (QB Washington) 22/1

Rodney Anderson (RB Oklahoma) 25/1

Ryan Finley (QB NC State) 25/1

Brandon Wimbush (QB Notre Dame) 35/1

D’Andre Swift (RB Georgia) 35/1

Nick Fitzgerald (QB Mississippi State) 35/1

Travis Etienne (RB Clemson) 35/1

David Sills (WR West Virginia) 45/1

Ed Oliver (DT Houston) 55/1

Nick Bosa (DE Ohio State) 75/1

Interestingly, it appears that a few of these odds have changed through the course of the afternoon and into the evening, as Dobbins and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa have apparently been bet up to 7/1 as well.

You can still make a cool $7,500 on a $100 bet on Nick Bosa, however.

Here are the latest odds since the initial release.

What do you think? Is there a Buckeye missing from this list?

  1. None from TTUN? Why not Shea Patterson along with the other “September Heisman” candidates like Tate Forcier & Denard Robinson?
