Kyle Trask Becomes Outright Favorite To Win Heisman. Can He Win It?

  • Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask has the shortest odds at -145 to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy.
  • Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Mac Jones +300 odds to win the Heisman Trophy are the third shortest.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The 2020 College Football season has steadily continued despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. There have been some postponements and cancellations of games but most Power 5 Conferences have been able to play a majority of their games.

As these games have been played, the Heisman Trophy race has begun to take shape.

The biggest shift in the Heisman Race was when Clemson Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence missed two games due to testing positive for the coronavirus. Lawrence was also the favorite to win the award coming into the season.

Since missing two games, Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask has taken over the Heisman race and college football bettors have certainly taken notice.

Odds To Win 2020 Heisman Trophy

  • Kyle Trask -145
  • Justin Fields +275
  • Mac Jones +300
  • Trevor Lawrence +1200
  • Zach Wilson +2000
  • Najee Harris +5000
  • Devonta Smith +5500
  • D’Eriq King +10000
  • Ian Book +10000
  • Spencer Rattler +15000

Last week, Trask was listed at +230 odds to win the Heisman Trophy and now USAOnlineSportsbooks have his odds are the shortest they’ve been all season at -145.

This marks the first time this season Trask has become the outright favorite for the award.

Trask has led the Gators to the top spot in the SEC East with a 6-1 record. He has made the Gators' offense elite as he’s thrown the most touchdowns in the country with 31 and has thrown for the fifth-most yards with 2,554.

Trask is in the driver's seat of the Heisman race but for how long remains to be seen.

The biggest roadblock to Trask winning the Heisman Trophy is Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Mac Jones. Jones has thrown for 2,426 yards which is the sixth most yards in the nation.

Even though Jones has only thrown 18 touchdowns compared to Trask’s 31, his 95.3 QBR is the highest in the country and could be the best time to take action on his +300 odds.

If the Crimson Tide continue to win out, Jones will have a compelling case for the award and his return would be better than Trask’s right now.

Though Florida is “out” of the CFB Playoffs currently, it is very likely that the winner of the Florida-Alabama SEC Championship game will come down to who performs better between Trask and Jones and this decision could affect the Heisman race and CFP odds.

This year's Heisman Trophy ceremony will be different because of the Covid-19 pandemic giving each player fewer opportunities to show why they deserve college football's most prestigious award.

As the college football season continues to go on bettors should keep any eye out on these dates to know when there could possibly be another major shift in the odds.
