Trevone Boykin the new Bovada Heisman betting favorite
When Bovada.lv released its odds in May on who will win the 2015 Heisman Trophy -- and even the previous release in January -- Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliott was the favorite. Now, though, those odds have changed and there’s a new favorite.
In the odds released by Bovada Tuesday, TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin is listed as the favorite at 6/1. In May, those odds were at 15/2, the same as in January.
Elliott, meanwhile, saw his odds slip a bit, going from 6/1 to 7/1. Most interesting, though, are the odds for three of the running back’s Ohio State teammates.
Obviously, all three quarterbacks -- J.T. Barrett, Cardale Jones, Braxton Miller -- are listed by Bovada. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s Miller, coming off shoulder surgery that cost him all of the 2014 season, is the favorite among that trio at 10/1, followed by Jones at 20/1 and Barrett at 25/1. Back in May, the order was Jones (14/1), Barrett (16/1) and Miller (18/1), while Jones was at 12/1 in January compared to Miller’s 25/1 and Barrett’s 28/1.
