2020 Heisman Trophy Odds Contenders

(School) Odds
  • Justin Fields (Ohio State) +350
  • Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) +500
  • Jamie Newman (Georgia) +600
  • D'Eriq King (Miami, Fl.) +900
  • Spencer Rattler (Oklahoma) +1200
  • Myles Brennan (LSU) +1400
  • Bo Nix (Auburn) +1600
  • Ian Book (Notre Dame) +2000
  • Sam Ehlinger (Texas) +2000
  • Mac Jones (Alabama) +2000

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is listed as the top betting choice at 7/2 odds (Bet $100 to win $350). Fields threw for 3,243 yards and 41 touchdowns to lead the Buckeyes to the college football playoff before losing to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.

Right behind Fields is another signal caller, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence at 5/1 odds. Lawrence has led the Tigers to consecutive appearances in the National Championship, as Clemson won it all back in 2017.

Also in the mix is Oklahoma's Spencer Rattler (12/1), who replaces Jalen Hurts in Norman. Another Big 12 quarterback that is receiving early Heisman praise is Texas' Sam Ehlinger, who is listed at 20/1 odds after throwing for career-bests 3,663 yards and 32 touchdowns in his junior season in Austin.

Other Players to Watch

The top non-quarterbacks on the betting board is a trio running backs. Oklahoma State's Chuba Hubbard, Clemson's Travis Etienne, and Ohio State's Trey Sermon are each listed at 33/1 odds as the last running back to win the Heisman Trophy was Alabama star Derrick Henry in 2015.

Hubbard rushed for over 2,000 yards last season, while scoring 21 touchdowns for the Cowboys. Etienne is fresh off consecutive seasons of rushing for at least 1,600 yards, as the Clemson senior found the end zone 23 times in 2019. Sermon heads to Columbus after spending last season with Oklahoma, as he is eligible to play as a graduate transfer.

The last wide receiver to win the Heisman Trophy was Michigan's Desmond Howard in 1992. The top wideouts in 2020 to break this Heisman dry spell are Purdue standout Rondale Moore and Alabama speedster Jaylen Waddle. Moore dominated his freshman season for the Boilermakers with 114 catches for 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns, but sustained an injury in 2019 that limited him to only four games. Waddle looks to step into a starring role for the Crimson Tide after Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III were first round picks in the NFL.

Listed below are the odds to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy.

Top Schools to Win Heisman Trophies

The first Heisman Trophy was handed out back in 1935 as Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Ohio State have seen players win the honor seven times apiece. In fact, the last time a player from the Big 10 conference took home the trophy came in 2006 when Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith hoisted the hardware. No player from Clemson has ever won the award, while two different players from the same school captured the Heisman in consecutive years in 2004-05 (USC) and 2017-18 (Oklahoma).
