Guess Who’s the Favorite to Win the 2017 Heisman?

Updated: June 30, 2016

Who will win the Heisman Trophy? All eyes are on the running backs. Whether it is Leonard Fournette or Christian McCaffrey, they have a great chance to literally run away with the hardware this year.

What do the smart guys think?

Here are the current odds to win the 2017 Heisman Trophy:

  • Leonard Fournette, 9/2
  • Deshaun Watson, 5/1
  • Christian McCaffrey, 11/2
  • J.T. Barrett, 12/1
  • Dalvin Cook, 12/1
  • Baker Mayfield, 12/1

I still think McCaffrey has the best chance (a) due to scheduling and (b) because he can do everything. There are some good candidates on this list and everyone has a shot as long as they are healthy. We will see how the race plays out on the field.
