Heisman odds: The Big 12 QBs dominate the odds
Using the odds at Malversports as a barometer, it looks like the Florida Gators’ Tim Tebow has a lot of work to do if he is to become the first player to win consecutive Heisman Trophy awards since Archie Griffin way back in 1975. The quarterback happy to run he entered the 2008 campaign as Malvernsports’ 3-1 favorite to have his name announced at the Downtown Athletic Club on December 15.
Currently paying 7-1, Tebow has some work to do to add a second Heisman to his trophy case. Overall, his numbers are down from last year’s personal offensive blitz; however, his stats are still pretty impressive, with 19 passing and 11 rushing touchdowns so far. The fact that the Gators are the favorites (+160) to win the BCS National Championship and have absolutely destroyed everyone in their path since their only loss to Mississippi in late September can’t affect Tebow’s chances.
The three players the Malversports handicappers have ahead of the current Heisman owner have a couple of things in common; they’re all quarterbacks and they all play in the happy Big 12 conference. Graham Harrell of Texas Tech and Sam Bradford of Oklahoma are the current co-favorites paying +150; Hot on their heels is Colt McCoy of the Texas Longhorns (+300).
Coincidentally, the two favorites meet this weekend when the Harrell Aggies travel to Norman Oklahoma to take on the Bradford Sonners. This game is sure to have National Championship implications and the winning quarterback could very well separate himself from the pack in the Heisman run.
From a statistical perspective, it is difficult to distinguish a favorite from the three big 12 that call the signal. What all three have done is simply amazing considering they all play in the same conference. To even think that one of these three won’t even make the All Big 12 second team is inconceivable.
Through ten games, Harrell has 36 TDs with just 5 interceptions and has completed a staggering 71.7% of his passes. Meanwhile, Bradford has thrown for 38 touchdowns on just 6 interceptions and completed almost 68% of his passes. Ultimately, McCoy has thrown 30 TDs, just 7 interceptions while completing a mind-boggling 77.2% of his passes.
