2016 Heisman Trophy Betting Odds Update | Preseason Predictions

Finding Value in 2015/16 Heisman Lines

The Heisman Trophy is the most coveted accolade any college football player can add to his collegiate resume. Last year’s winner, Marcus Mariota, went second overall in this year’s NFL draft, and the previous winner, Jameis Winston, went No. 1.

Heisman Forecast

Not all Heisman winners will go on to have successful professional careers, and some won’t even be top draft picks.

But while we don’t know what’s to come for Heisman winners of the future, we do have an idea as to who the favorites are at this point in the process.

All odds from Sportsbook.ag

Ezekiel Elliott (RB Ohio State) 6/1

Ezekiel Elliott is riding the best game of his career straight into 2016’s Heisman contention. The star running back went for 246 yards on 36 carries (6.8 yards per carry) in a national championship victory over the Oregon Ducks, and he managed to convert those attempts into four rushing touchdowns in the process.

That showing in the final game of the year may have been Elliott’s most impressive all-around contest of the year, but don’t fool yourself thinking it came out of nowhere. He also ran for 220 yards in the Big Ten championship and 230 yards in the surprising Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama.

Despite entering last season far from being a household name, Elliott made sure people knew who he was across the country by the time the year came to a close. He enters 2015 known for his quick skyrocket to stardom; he could end it with college football’s most notorious trophy in his collection.

Trevone Boykin (QB TCU) 7/1

To many, Trevone Boykin should be the favorite for the Heisman Trophy entering 2015. In fact, if Elliott hadn’t gotten so hot at the end of the year, he likely would be.

Boykin was close to changing to wide receiver, but he ended up truly establishing himself in the system run by offensive coordinators Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meachem. He tossed the pigskin to the tune of 3,901 yards with 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season. It was a breakout year, and he ran for 707 yards and eight touchdowns on top of those impressive throwing numbers.

Also in Boykin’s favor is that he has a fourth-place finish to his name for the Heisman. The fact is, he’s also going to be one of the best quarterbacks in the country this next season, and when you’re one of the best quarterbacks in the country, you’re going to be near the top of Heisman lists.

Dak Prescott (QB Mississippi State) 8/1

Like Boykin, Prescott began to build his Heisman case last season. Unfortunately, that case took a hit late in the year with Mississippi State’s two losses in its last three contests.

Last season, the Mississippi State quarterback threw for 3,449 yards on top of running totaling 986 yards on the ground. Those numbers equated to 41 touchdowns in total, but he’ll have to compensate for the losses the team has suffered on both sides of the ball.

Also like Boykin, Prescott has the luxury of playing the sport’s most glamorous position. When you play that position, you get a lot of attention. And when you play it well, you land yourself in Heisman consideration.

Unfortunately, Mississippi State isn’t going to be a powerhouse, which means the man behind center will have to either exceed his own expectations or help his team exceed conference expectations.

  • Nick Chubb (RB Georgia) 8/1
