Bovada Official released early odds for the Heisman, awarded to the best player in college football, and Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham is currently listed at 12/1 odds to win the award, tied with three others for fifth on the list.
Stidham is tied with Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins, and quarterbacks Jake Fromm from Georgia and West Virginia’s Will Grier. Ahead of the pack are Stanford’s Bryce Love (7/1), Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor (8/1), Arizona’s Khalil Tate (9/1) and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa (10/1).
