Odds to Win 2019 Heisman Trophy Award

Putting an ounce of faith in spring projections for college football winter Heisman Trophy candidates is fruitless. I wrote at this time last year essentially the same belief. Furthermore the consensus “most likely” to win the 2018 Heisman was Stanford running back Bryce Love. After all Love was the 2017 runner-up and hense positioned by oddsmakers as the favorite to be awarded the trophy based on that fact and his 2017 running back numbers.

Without writing a short story and detailing my tips on betting futures understanding that the oddsmakers are not projecting, in truth, who will win or stake claim to any future, but posturing to whom they believe the public believes will, and in turn bet.

Love didn’t just struggle to reproduced his 2017 rushing numbers he dealt with an ankle injury. That ailment was arguably the most predictable variable of what was “most likely” with the Stanford tailback. It is, and was, an injury he suffered from most of his college career. And in turn much more probable than winning the Heisman.

Love missed three games, and posted just one 100-yard rushing performance in 2018, and finished the regular season with just 736 yards and six touchdowns in his senior season.

When selecting an investment into a specific player that can be college football’s most valuable player start with a team that is talented enough to stay in the news each and every weekend. And in the news for positive reasons… winning games being first and foremost. Second if you are interested in cashing your futures ticket make that player a quarterback.
