Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is the clear favorite on the odds to win the Heisman Trophy at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com heading into the season’s stretch run.
Barkley was listed at +900 (bet $100 to win $900) on the Heisman Trophy odds back in early September, but he enters the month of November as the -175 (bet $175 to win $100) favorite. Barkley has rushed for 801 yards and nine touchdowns to go along with three scoring catches so far this season. Last week against Ohio State, however, he was held to just 44 rushing yards and a TD. Penn State is on the road at Michigan State as a favorite Saturday afternoon.
Stanford running back Bryce Love (+400) and Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett (+450) are Barkley’s closest competitors on the Heisman Trophy odds, with both of them making huge gains on the list in the past month – they each sat at +3300 on the futures in late September.
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield sits at +750 on the Heisman Trophy odds, while rival quarterback Mason Rudolph of Oklahoma State is farther behind at +3300. Those two will face off on Saturday afternoon with the Cowboys small home favorites for the marquee game.
Rounding out the odds to win the Heisman Trophy are Notre Dame quarterback Josh Adams (+1000) and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson (+4000). Adams is new to the list for this week, riding Notre Dame’s surge in the polls. Jackson is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.
