Odds to win the Heisman Trophy for the year 2018.  Who is the favourite? According to Bovada.lv, the race for the Heisman Trophy award this year is essentially down to three players - Tua Tagovailoa, Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins.

Given Alabama's dominance so far this season, there should be no surprise that Tagovailoa is currently the odds-in favourite to win the trophy. What makes Tagovailoa's season even more impressive is the fact that he is often pulled from games early in the second half to make way for Jalen Hurts, as Alabama is almost always up by multiple touchdowns at the half. In short, Tua's statistics could be even better.

Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins have both put up dominant numbers so far this season as well, though they pale in comparison to Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa will be helped by the fact that Alabama is absolutely dominating this season, and it would be hard not to give the Heisman Trophy to somebody on the Crimson Tide.

Kyler Murray was the early favourite to win the award, though a close win over Army and a recent loss to Texas have hurt his chances a bit.


Here are the Bovada betting odds as of this moment:

Tagovailoa -150
Haskins/Murray +300
Grier +1200
Milton/McSorley +2000
Taylor/Etienne/Lawrence +5000
Snell Jr +6000
Herbert +6600
Love +10000
Lock/Fromm +20000

You'd have to imagine that the only way that Tagovailoa doesn't win is if:

1) Alabama suffers some sort of shocking loss between now and the end of the season

2) Tagovailoa suffers an injury and can't finish out the year
