Updated Futures for Heisman Trophy and National Championship

April 13, 2015

The NCAA basketball season just came to an end a week ago. The NBA is ending its regular season this week and Major League Baseball has just begun its 162-game regular season.

It has been just three months since the Ohio State Buckeyes won the 2015 College Playoff and national championship. The season does not start until early September, but that does not keep odds makers from handing out futures for the 2015 Heisman Trophy and the 2015-15 national champion. The Heisman is college football’s most prestigious individual award and is awarded each December.

When the number came out for the first time over two months ago, there were no surprises that a quarterback was favored to win. Trevone Boykin was the top choice of odds makers. The quarterback from Texas Christian University is a dual threat who runs as well as he passes the ball.

Following Boykin is Ezekiel Elliott a running back for Ohio State. Since the first release of the futures for the Heisman Trophy Elliott has leapfrogged Boykin and is now leading the odds maker’s futures for the Heisman Trophy at 6 to 1, while Boykin dropped to fourth at 15 to 2.

Ohio State has three quarterbacks who all have a chance to win the coveted Heisman. Cardale Jones is 10 to 1, J.T. Barrett is 25 to 1 and Braxton Miller is 25 to 1.

Another solid choice is Dak Prescott the talented dual threat quarterback from Mississippi State who competed last season against eventual winner Marcus Mariota.
