Four Best Bets To Win The Heisman Trophy
Jun 18, 2024 12:05 PM

The Heisman Trophy award is something every college football player is chasing throughout the season. From a betting perspective, it’s one of the most popular player props to bet on. This year, there are a number of players that are going to be in the running for this honor with USC’s Caleb Williams starting the year as the favorite. He’ll be aiming to become the first player since 1975 to win back-to-back Heisman’s. Can he pull it off, or are there other names that could upend him? Let’s take a closer look at the betting odds, which are from MyBookie sportsbook.

Caleb Williams, USC Trojans

Odds: +550

Caleb Williams is currently the favorite to win the Heisman in 2023. He is coming off a Heisman-winning year after throwing for 4,537 yards. He also set a school record for touchdowns with 52.

He’s in a great, quarterback-friendly offense led by head coach Lincoln Riley and saw the team add Dorian Singer from the transfer portal to give him another playmaking wideout. The expectation is that USC is going to be one of the top teams in the country. If that’s the case and the USC offense is the reason for it, Williams will be in the running for the trophy again.

Jayden Daniels, LSU Tigers

Odds: +900

Jayden Daniels looks primed to compete with Williams for this award. Daniels is the starting quarterback of the LSU Tigers, a team that got a boost in 2022 following head coach Brian Kelly joining. Since then, Daniels came over from the transfer portal and threw for over 2,900 yards and 17 touchdowns compared to only three interceptions. Where he really shined was on the ground, leading the team with 885 yards and 11 more touchdowns. His dual threat capabilities coupled with a flourishing team could help him jump Williams in the race. Similar to Williams, if LSU is in the running to win the SEC or National Championship, Williams will get plenty of credit that will be useful for the Heisman Trophy race.

J.J. McCarthy, Michigan Wolverines

Odds: +1200

J.J. McCarthy is a sneaky Heisman pick out of Michigan. The quarterback filled a hole in the position that Michigan had been struggling in for years. McCarthy threw for 2,700 yards and 22 touchdowns while adding 306 rushing yards and five more touchdowns on the ground. He proved to be a game-changer in 2022, and now gets to play behind a phenomenal offensive line to make his life easier. He’s got two elite guards in Trevor Keegan and Zak Zinter on top of Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum. McCarthy is in the perfect situation to shine.

Marvin Harrison Jr., Ohio State Buckeyes

Odds: +2000

The biggest longshot comes here, with Marvin Harrison Jr. The wide receiver tops all other non-quarterbacks in betting odds, and for good reason. The entire Ohio State passing offense is expected to flow through Harrison in 2023, so there’s an opportunity for a massive receiving season ahead of him. On top of that, it’s anticipated that he can lead the country in receptions, yards, and touchdowns this year. Expectations are certainly sky high for Harrison, though the fact that he isn’t a quarterback could hurt his odds against other notable players mentioned earlier. However, we watched DeVonta Smith win the Heisman from his wide receiver position back in 2020 when he had 1,800 yards and 23 touchdowns. It’s definitely possible, but only three wideouts have ever won the Heisman in history. Harrison has
