Buckeyes Open With Third-Best Odds to Win 2020 National Title

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields

BetOnline has released their 2020 national championship and Heisman odds and the Ohio State Buckeyes are represented well in both.

Ohio State has opened with 9/2 odds to win it all next season, behind Clemson at 9/4 and Alabama at 7/2.

Clemson fell in last night’s title game 42-25 to LSU, who is fourth on next year’s list at 6/1.

Of the teams with the top four odds, only Clemson and Ohio State will be returning their starting quarterbacks from this past season.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is now 1-1 in national title games and suffered his first defeat as a starter to LSU.

SEC teams fill out spots five through seven with Georgia at 8/1, Florida at 14/1, and Auburn at 20/1.

Michigan and Penn State are the next two Big Ten teams, both coming in at 33/1, which is behind Oklahoma at 20/1 and Notre Dame and Texas at 25/1.

Somehow, Florida State is 50/1, which is the same odds given to Wisconsin.

If you would like to throw your money away, you can get Tennessee at 66/1 and Miami, FL at 100/1.

Here is the full list provided by @BetOnline_AG.

The 2020 Heisman odds were also released and Trevor Lawrence is at the top with 7/2 odds. Behind him in second is Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields at 4/1.

Fields threw for 3,273 yards and 41 touchdowns with three interceptions this past season. He also rushed for another 484 yards and 10 scores.

Fields finished third in the 2019 voting behind winner Joe Burrow of LSU and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.

USC quarterback Kedon Slovis shows up third overall with 9/1 odds. Slovis kind of came out of nowhere in 2019 to start for the Trojans. He threw for over 400 yards four times this past season, winning all four of those games in the process.

Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard recently announced that he would be returning to school rather than turning pro early, which is why you can now find him fourth on this list with 10/1 odds. Hubbard led the nation in rushing this past season with 2,094 yards (161.1 ypg).

Myles Brennan, who was Joe Burrow’s backup at LSU this past season is 16/1 to win the Heisman.

There are six players from the Big Ten listed. None of them are from the University of Michigan.

Here is the list in its entirety.

  1. I’m just here for a cheap shot cause I can’t resist… OK, in the end, who’s the better quarterback J.T. Barrett, Justin Fields, Dwayne Haskins or Joe Burrow. It’s real bitter sweet after 3 years of thinking “this guy has talent” to see my opinion vindicated by team that gave him a shot. Oh, what could have been.

    Everyone still feel it’s OK he never got an honest shot?

    1. The real tragedy was the 2017 season. Urban had a chance, due to our 31-0 thrashing by DeShaun Watson and Clemson to assert that in spring ball, ALL OPTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE AND EVERY POSITION WILL BE EVALUATED. THAT, should have been Joe’s year. Dwayne was just a redshirt freshman, and not quite ready to be starting QB by week 1. Had Joe been the guy, he either is our 2017 and 2018 QB, and Dwayne would have been our guy this year (we probably don’t get Justin). Or, Joe has a crazy 2017, he leaves, and then we have Dwayne for 2018 and Justin for this year.

      Anyway you spin it, the problems started with 2017.

  2. Surprised Olave didn’t make the Heisman list, toward the bottom. If he adds a little bit of bulk, he will be even MORE awesome in 2020.

  3. We better find a secondary and pass rusher(s) over the winter, spring, and summer.

    Offensively we should be fine.
