2021 Heisman Trophy Candidates
June 24, 2021 8:00 pm EDT
With the 2021 college football season soon approaching, we’re going to take a look at Heisman odds and give out some picks. These are good side bets to make some extra money and you can cash some monster tickets with dark horse predictions. With future bets, I usually take shots on longer odds and hope to get more bang for my buck. So, you’re not going to see a lot of favorites on this article.
Here are five Heisman candidates to consider for 2021.
Spencer Rattler +800, Oklahoma – Two of the last four Heisman winners have been Oklahoma quarterbacks. Spencer Rattler is the next great OU single caller, and he threw for over 3,000 yards and 28 touchdowns last season. The core of Oklahoma’s offense returns and you can expect Rattler to be better with a year under his belt. These odds will only drop as the season begins.
Sam Howell +1400, North Carolina – North Carolina isn’t as stacked as it was last season with a lot of key players now in the NFL. However, that means more chances for Sam Howell to put up numbers. In two seasons, Howell has thrown for more than 7,000 yards and 68 touchdowns while completing 64.4 percent of his passes. Howell is one of the more accomplished quarterbacks in the country and will be a top-five pick in the draft. These odds are sweet.
Kedon Slovis +3000, USC – Kedon Slovis should be ready for a jump in his third season and he’s been sharp through 18 games. Slovis has 5,400 yards and 47 touchdowns for his career. He’ll have some talented receivers to throw to this season. It also doesn’t hurt to play for USC, a school that’s produced six Heisman winners and gets a ton of national TV time. Slovis at this price is a bit confusing.

Emory Jones +4000, Florida – The Gators lost a lot of production from a year ago, but they still have Dan Mullen at coach and Emory Jones is ridiculously talented. In fact, some say Jones is the most talented quarterback in the SEC, and that’s with just 86 career pass attempts. Jones is an elite athlete, and we’ve seen these types takeover college football in the past in Cam Newton, Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray and Johnny Manziel. Jones is a special talent who could soon join that list.
Kyren Williams +11000, Notre Dame – If you’re looking for a dark horse of a dark horse, Kyren Williams is worth a look at this price. Williams topped 1,100 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns last season, and he’ll get more carries this year with questions at quarterback. Through 215 career carries, Williams is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Oh, playing for Notre Dame doesn’t hurt in terms of promotion. If Williams builds on what he did last year, he has a good chance to be a Heisman finalist.
