2013 Heisman trophy odds: Ohio State's Braxton Miller now 13/2, still second

The latest Bovada Heisman Trophy odds still favor Johnny Football becoming a two-time winner (and joining Archie's exclusive fraternity), but Braxton Miller is on the rise... slightly.

Could Miller be adding to his hardware next season?

It's been almost four months since we've seen any real movement on the Heisman Trophy odds front, but as we continue to look for office water cooler debate fodder to kill the time between now and college football's opening Thursday kickoff (thankfully *just* 100 days away), we've got some new fuel for the fire.

The latest odds, courtesy of Bovada (the former Bodog), regarding the 2013 Heisman Trophy race has the Buckeyes' signal caller, Braxton Miller, now slightly improved from his previous 7/1 odds to 13/2. The returning Heisman Trophy winner, redshirt sophomore Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, remains a strong favorite to join Ohio State's Archie Griffin as just the second ever two-time Heisman Trophy winner. Manziel had previously had 4/1 odds, but is now listed at slightly worse 9/2 odds.

With questions lingering about Lane Kiffin's long term future in Westwood (and questions in general about USC's offense), talented Trojans WR Marquis Lee falls from third favorite into a five way tie for fourth joining Aaron Murray (QB Georgia), De'Anthony Thomas (RB/weapon, Oregon), T.J. Yeldon (RB, Alabama), and Teddy Bridgewater (QB, Louisville). A.J. McCarron, the quarterback of two time defending champs Alabama, checks in at third at 10/1 odds. Personally, Anthony at 12/1 and Jadeveon Clowney (DE, South Carolina) at 14/1, look fairly enticing as far as these kind of things go.

The rest of the odds are as follows:

Johnny Manziel (QB Texas A&M) 9/2
Braxton Miller (QB Ohio State) 13/2
A.J. McCarron (QB Alabama) 10/1
Aaron Murray (QB Georgia) 12/1
De'Anthony Thomas (RB Oregon) 12/1
Marquis Lee (WR USC) 12/1
T.J. Yeldon (RB Alabama) 12/1
Teddy Bridgewater (QB Louisville) 12/1
Duke Johnson (RB Miami) 14/1
Jadeveon Clowney (DE South Carolina) 14/1
Tajh Boyd (QB Clemson) 16/1
Marcus Mariota (QB Oregon) 18/1
Taylor Martinez (QB Nebraska) 18/1
Lache Seastrunk (RB Baylor) 20/1
Ameer Abdullah (RB Nebraska) 25/1
Brett Hundley (QB UCLA) 25/1
Everett Golson (QB Notre Dame) 25/1
Stephen Morris (QB Miami) 25/1
Devin Gardner (QB Michigan) 33/1
Blake Bell (QB Oklahoma) 40/1
Jeff Driskel (QB Florida) 40/1
Ka'Deem Carey (RB Arizona) 40/1
Stefon Diggs (WR Maryland) 40/1
