With football season steadily creeping up on the calendar, the oddsmakers in Vegas are putting together more odds on who will walk away with the national championship and Heisman Trophy.
The sportsbook Bovada unveiled new odds on who they have as favorites for the title and Heisman. That’s good news for Ohio State, as the Buckeyes are shown to have shorter (better) odds of winning the title and quarterback J.T. Barrett winning the Heisman.
OSU is now seen as 13/2 favorites to win the whole enchilada, better odds than the 15/2 odds they had back on Jan. 1. For the Heisman, Barrett now sits at 8/1 odds—tied for fourth best odds. Previously, on Feb. 20, Barrett had 12/1 odds of winning the prestigious trophy.
