Teddy Bridgewater the new Heisman betting favorite

Is it way too early to begin talking about the favorite for the 2013 Heisman Trophy?  As 2012 Geno Smith would say, it absolutely is.  That won’t stop us, however, from making a note as to which way the gambling public is leaning.

In its latest odds released Tuesday afternoon, Bovada.lv has Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater as the favorite at 5/1.  The Cardinals quarterback was at 9/1 two weeks prior to the start of the new season, but his monster season-opening performance apparently opened some eyes a little further.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, the preseason favorite at 9/2, was up next at 13/2.  Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who was the prohibitive favorite prior to the mini-drama over payment for autographs, checked in at 15/2.  Johnny Football had been a 4/1 favorite before the off-field issues dropped him to 15/1; those odds jumped back up to 7/1 after his “situation” was resolved with a half-game suspension.

Two more quarterbacks, Clemson’s Tajh Boyd and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, come in at 8/1.  The first non-quarterback listed is Miami running back Duke Johnson at 10/1.

Jameis Winston, a redshirt freshman coming off a breathtaking performance in his collegiate debut Monday night, is tied with Johnson at 10/1.

    Bridgewater sure looked like a Heisman QB didn’t he?

    But so did Geno Smith last year about this time….

    I agree that it’s way too early to think about Heisman candidates, but as long as it’s not a Freshman … carry on.

    I’d throw 100 on Winston. If FSU goes 12-0 11-1 he’ll def get an invite to New York
