Don Best’s betting champ Joe D’Amico shines the spotlight on the race for the Heisman Trophy…
Prior to the start of the college football season, Trevor Lawrence was a shoo-in to win the Heisman Trophy. I mean, he was on the preseason No. 1 ranked team. He won a National Championship already and he had stuck around to try to win another.
As the strange 2020 season kicked off, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers, the only other contender for the coveted award was Ohio State’s Justin Fields. After missing a game due to Covid-19 and as per safety precautions, having to sit out another game, he is no longer the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy at many sportsbooks.

Fields and Alabama quarterback, Mac Jones have both moved ahead of Lawrence. The two current favorites are listed on the board at Vegas sports books at 3/2.
Lawrence, the odds-on favorite to win the award for much of the season, tested positive for the coronavirus last week and missed Saturday's game against Boston College. He has been ruled out for this week's game at Notre Dame. Lawrence has dropped down to 2/1 but I wouldn’t count him out just yet, folks.
After the top-three candidates, there is a huge drop down to the next possible winners. BYU quarterback, Zach Wilson is 30/1. Alabama wide receiver, DeVonta Smith, Florida quarterback, Kyle Trask and Alabama running back, Najee Harris are all tied at 50/1. There are 11 other players currently in the running all listed at 100/1, including Lawrence’s teammate, running back, Travis Etienne.
With the college football regular season stretching into December this season for some conferences, a date for the Heisman Trophy presentation has not been announced. One thing for sure, it’s going to be a fun and exciting ride for us sports fans and sports bettors to watch and perhaps make some coin with.
