Who do you think will win the college football Heisman Trophy in 2019? Well, if they happen to be a quarterback from Clemson or Alabama, you might just be in luck. When it comes to this year’s Heisman Trophy winner prediction, you don’t need to look much past the 1st round of our 2020 NFL mock draft. The new college football season is just around the corner and oddsmakers have already decided on who the favorites are to pose with that next Heisman Trophy.

No surprise, Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence lead the pack so far after meeting in last year’s title game. They are both deadly accurate quarterback prospects, albeit different styles, and how the season plays out could make the difference (if any of them find a way to lose before the college playoffs). Next serious contenders for the hardware include Justin Feilds out of Ohio State, Jalen Hurts now with Oklahoma, Jake Fromm at Georgia and Justin Herbert in Oregon (to name a few of the top quarterbacks). The Heisman winner has predominantly went to quarterbacks but you never know if this is the year one of the elite receivers like Jerry Jeudy or Tee Higgins make a grab for it. Or perhaps voters get steamrolled by one of the running backs like Najee Harris or Travis Ettienne.

Here is a look at the latest odds via Westgate to win the Heisman Trophy in 2019:

Heisman Trophy Winner Prediction

Trevor Lawrence

How do you not just go with sunshine after winning the title already last year at 3 to 1? He is one of the highest rated prospects of all time and now a year more mature and will have a full offseason of reps with standout wideouts Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross.

Heisman Trophy Winner Futures Strategy

A wise person, however, would also look to hedge some on Tua (+300), and a few other dark horses in the race like Justin Herbert (+2500) or Shea Patterson (+2500) who could make noise in the Pac-12 and Big-10 respectively. While we love Justin Feilds as a player (he looks like a young Cam Newton with better accuracy and is a serious dual-threat with 4.5 speed) it’s hard to see him winning this year at +1000. Heisman voters usually need to be familiar with you before you get their vote, and he in turn is running a new offense at OSU that could take time to develop. One other dual-threat flyer who could be worth a small investment is D’Eriq King at +6000 who may be in line for a record breaking year at Houston and could take voters by storm like Lamar Jackson did.
