Best Bets to Win the 2012 Heisman Trophy

Despite the fact you can place a mobile bet on anyone to win the 2012 Heisman Trophy the race isn’t that wide open. Every year you need to take a long look at the favourites to win the award although in the past couple years there have been surprises. In 2010 Newton won the Heisman and last year RG3 ended up winning the award. Neither QB was touted as an early favourite.

Since the year 2000 there has been 9 QB’s, 2 RB’s and 1 WR that has won the Heisman Trophy. Defensive players simply don’t win this award very often. In fact Charles Woodson was the 1st pure defensive player to win the Heisman (1997) and there hasn’t been another defensive player to win the award since.

Looking at this year’s top candidates you have to like Matt Barkley at +333, but the value is gone. Barkley is a senior now at USC and he’s expected to provide USC with a chance to contend for the National Championship. Barkley has improved in each of his 3 years at USC and last season he had a QB Rating of 161.2 after throwing for 3528 yards, 39 TD’s and 7 INT’s.

My favourite pick is Montee Ball this year. If he comes close to his numbers last season he should win as a senior. Wisconsin is going to be a good team this year in my opinion, but that success hinges on Ball. Last season he rushed for 1923 yards and 33 TD’s plus he also put up some decent receiving numbers from out of the backfield.

Another player being highly touted this off-season is Keith Price in Washington. If he can lead Washington to a respectable bowl game, which noone is expecting he may win the trophy. Price is a lot like Newton / RG3, but I don’t think he’s on that same level yet and Washington isn’t that talented yet to compete with the big boys in college football.

• Montee Ball to win at +450 (5.50)
