Heisman Trophy Race - College football award - Odds to win - Who will it be in 2019? When the 2019/20 college football season gets underway in the summer, Alabama and Clemson will be the top two ranked teams in the country, and for good reason.

After all, Clemson and Alabama have both won two college football titles over the past four years and there is no reason to think that anything will change anytime soon.

The biggest reason? Both of the team's starting QBs - Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence - will be returning to their respective teams this year.

As a matter of fact, Lawrence, who turned in a stunning performance in last season's college football championship, can't leave for the NFL for two more seasons. Tagovailoa, on the other hand, will almost certainly declare at the end of this season and will likely be a top pick in the NFL.

Quarterbacks usually win the Heisman Trophy award, so it is no surprise that Tagovailoa and Lawrence are the two favourites to win this upcoming season.

Let's take a look at the current betting odds for players with the best odds of winning the Heisman as of this moment:

Tua Tagovailoa, +250
Trevor Lawrence, +250
Jonathan Taylor, +1400
D'Andre Swift, +1400
Adrian Martinez, +1200
Jalen Hurts, +1200
Justin Fields, +1400
Ian Book, +1600
Travis Etienne, +1600
Jake Fromm, +1800

If you believe that either Alabama or Clemson will finish as the #1 ranked college football team this season, taking either Tagovailoa or Lawrence is a pretty safe bet.

Other interesting possibilities include Jalen Hurts at Oklahoma (+1200) and Jonathan Taylor at Wisconsin (+1400). Jalen Hurts is especially compelling, as the former Alabama player is transferring to a program that has helped mold the likes of Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. Hurts is likely going to be playing with a chip on his shoulder this season after losing the starting job at Alabama, so he is certainly a compelling value play.
