  • Odds to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy have been released.
  • After finishing as this year's runner up, Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa is an early +200 favorite to win the Heisman Trophy next season.

We’re only two days removed from this year’s Heisman announcement, but that doesn’t make it too early to start looking ahead to next year.

In fact, betting odds are already available for the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner, featuring a familiar name at the top of the list.

Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, this season’s runner-up, is a sizable favorite to win the award next year at +200. He’s followed by a long list made up of mostly quarterbacks and running backs, and most closely by Trever Lawrence of Clemson.

Here is the complete list of available odds. A $100 bet yields the amount listed with that player (so a $100 bet on Lawrence would win you $550).

  • Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama) +200
  • Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) +550
  • Jake Fromm (Georgia) +650
  • Jonathan Taylor (Wisconsin) +700
  • Travis Etienne (Clemson) +800
  • D’Andre Swift (Georgia) +800
  • Sam Ehlinger (Texas) +900
  • Tate Martell (Ohio State) +1100
  • Austin Kendall (Oklahoma) +1100
  • Jerry Jeudy (Alabama) +1100
  • Rondale Moore (Purdue): +1600
  • Shea Patterson (Michigan): +1600
  • AJ Dillon (Boston College): +1600
  • Adrian Martinez (Nebraska): +2000
  • Jalen Hurts (Alabama): +2000
  • K.J. Costello (Stanford): +2000
  • Eno Benjamin (Arizona State): +2000
  • Kelly Bryant (Missouri): +2500
  • Khalil Tate (Arizona): +2500
  • D’Eriq King (Houston): +2500
  • Field: +900

Interestingly, the Clemson and Georgia backfields make up four of top six spots on the list, and the probabilities based on those odds imply a greater than 50% chance that one of those players will take home the award. Of course, these odds are inflated, which is to be expected for a prop bet so far in advance.

And formerly of the Clemson backfield, Kelly Bryant is one of the last players listed. In what will be his first year at Missouri, Bryant’s odds are listed at +2500.

This year’s winner, Kyler Murray, was the second straight Oklahoma quarterback to win the trophy. While he’s off to a career in professional baseball, you can still bet on that trend continuing with Austin Kendall, whose +1100 odds rank eighth on the list.
