Finding Value Betting On The Heisman Trophy Winner

  • D.J. Uiagalelei has been given odds of +1200 to win the Heisman Trophy through online sportsbooks.
  • CJ Stroud’s odds to win the Heisman Trophy are +1400.
  • D’Eriq King has +2200 odds to win the Heisman Award.

LAS VEGAS – Betting on the Heisman Trophy Winner is one of the most popular bets to make when betting on college football. Being that this is a futures bet, it is best to find the most value on whoever the pick is to win the award.

In order to find the best value, shopping lines between different online sportsbooks is the best way to go about this as they sometimes have wide margins between their odds for the same player and wager.

Some of the biggest names that have different odds to win the Heisman trophy across different college football betting sites are D.J. Uiagalelei, DJ Stroud, and CJ Stroud.

D.J. Uiagalelei, Clemson

D.J. Uiagalelei is set to take over the reins of the QB1 slot at Clemson and his Heisman odds are sitting towards the top of the boards throughout multiple internet sportsbooks. Uiagalelei started two games for the Tigers last season and went for 781 total passing yards and four touchdowns.

Looking deeper into his odds, DraftKings has him sitting with +750, which means a $100 wager would payout $750 if he wins the award. However, his odds on DraftKings do not offer nearly as much value like that of BetOnline.

At BetOnline, his odds to win the Heisman are listed at +1200 which would offer a $1,200 payout for the same $100 bet.

Rather than betting on his odds at DraftKings, if the odds are taken at BetOnline, it comes out to an extra $450 in profit to line the sports bettor's wallet.

CJ Stroud, Ohio State

CJ Stroud is going into his freshmen year at Ohio State as a four-star prospect. Being that Ohio State is amongst one of the most elite college football programs in the country, it makes sense that Stroud's Heisman Trophy odds are favored across different betting sites.

Getting into his odds on DraftKings, they are offered at +1000 where $100 cashes out to $1,000 in total profit. On Bovada though, Stroud’s odds sit at +1400, where they are much more valuable as they offer a $1,400 payout on the same bet.

Similar to D.J. Uiagalelei's situation, Stroud’s odds offer a $400 payout difference between Bovada and DraftKings.

D’Eriq King, Miami (FL)

In his first season playing for the Miami Hurricanes, D’Eriq King led the Canes to a successful 8-2 record where they finished as the #18 ranked team in the country. King went for 2,686 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, 538 rushing yards, and four rushing touchdowns. The expectations heading into 2021 are high for the Miami QB which is why his Heisman odds are near the top of the odds board.

Although the difference is not enormous, there is still better value betting on King’s odds on Bovada rather than on BetMGM. At Bovada, his odds are+2200 while BetMGM has them at +2000. With that, Bovada’s payout would be $2,200 while BetMGM is $200 less at $2,000.

While the margin is not huge, there is still more money that could be made on Bovada which could play a huge difference in the long run. And with all of these players and other wagers, the trend is their online sportsbook value is higher than local sports bet offers which is why shopping lines is always encouraged.
