2023 Heisman Trophy Betting

Heisman Trophy Betting

It’s only quarterbacks that are among the first and second group of favorites for the 2023 Heisman Trophy. The lowest odds on any non-quarterback to win the award are +3000 on Ohio State receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., so it’s safe to say that a QB will likely win the Heisman Trophy for the sixth time in the last seven years. Caleb Williams is hoping to make history as just the second player to win the Heisman Trophy in consecutive seasons, and the USC signal caller is a considerable favorite over the field.

Lincoln Riley immediately made the USC Trojans competitive once again. Riley came to USC with plenty of fanfare after spending a decade in Norman, and he delivered in his first season with Caleb Williams under center. The Trojans went 11-2 and played in the Cotton Bowl, but they didn’t make the College Football Playoff due to a porous defense that gave up tons of yards and points. Williams completed two-thirds of his passes for over 4,500 yards with 42 touchdowns and five interceptions while running for 10 TDs last season, and he will need to put up similar stats to repeat.

If Texas can scratch the surface of its potential, Quinn Ewers has a great chance of winning the Heisman Trophy. Ewers flashed at times last year and looked sharp in Texas’ second game against Alabama before leaving due to injury and subsequently missing a month of action. The Longhorns have some very good receivers, and they will rely more on Ewers now that Bijan Robinson is playing in the NFL.

Although he is disdained by some, Brian Kelly proved why he is an elite head coach last season. Kelly was expected to struggle in his first season with LSU, but the Tigers were one of the best teams in the conference as he helped Jayden Daniels slowly develop into a quality dual-threat quarterback. Daniels is now seen as one of the top signal callers in the nation and is a serious candidate to win the Heisman Trophy.

Heisman Trophy History

Since the first Heisman Trophy was presented to Jay Berwanger in 1935, the overwhelming majority of Heisman Trophy winners have been running backs or quarterbacks. Running backs were the original stars in college football, so it’s no surprise to see ball carriers win most of the early awards. There was a big shift to the passing game at the start of the 21st Century though, and quarterbacks have made up most of the winners since that point.

A quarterback has won the Heisman Trophy in 19 of 23 years since 2000. The first non-quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy in the 21st Century was Reggie Bush, and the award was stripped from him after he admitted to accepting money in college. However, there has been a push to restore Bush’s Heisman Trophy following the passage of NIL that will allow players to be paid for their services.

Alabama did not have a Heisman Trophy winner before Mark Ingram won the award in 2009. The Crimson Tide have had three players claim the highest individual honor in college football since that point, and they have boasted two of the three most recent winners of this trophy. DeVonta Smith became the first receiver to win the Heisman Trophy since Desmond Howard, and Bryce Young was the first Alabama quarterback to earn the honor in 2021.
