Betting site Bovada, previously known as Bodog, has made USC quarterback Matt Barkley the early favorite for the 2012 Heisman Trophy at 7/2.
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson and Wisconsin running back Montee Ball – a 2011 Heisman finalist – both are 5/1 to win the award. Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones, who is returning for his anticipated senior year, is 13/2.
Click the link below for the entire list. It should be mentioned that odds for Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron (15/1) certainly were enhanced by him winning the Offensive MVP of Monday’s BCS title game.
We think that Oregon running back De’Anthony Thomas is a good value bet at 25/1 considering that the Ducks should be a Top 5 team and will be without star runner LaMichael James.
But hey, it’s really, really early.
