College Football Betting: 2015 Heisman Frontrunners

Posted by The Wiesguy on 7/27/2015 10:09:05 PM

Handicapping a Heisman race is actually easier than you think. You can eliminate pretty much all defensive players (sorry Adoree Jackson), all offensive linemen, and I am pretty sure no tight end has ever won the award. That leaves you with quarterbacks, running back and receivers and even that group can be narrowed to those few lucky to play for a team that will have a story like competing for a national championship. It also helps if you are the obvious star of the show which is why there are no Ohio State Buckeyes listed below. That all said here are a few players I am keen on.

QB Trevone Boykin

TCU Horned Frogs

Odds to win Heisman: +650

He probably has the most going for him heading into the season. TCU has never had so much hype coming into a season and he has already proven that he can put up big numbers. Given what we saw last season it is hard to imagine that he was almost converted to receiver last year, isn’t it?. His candidacy this year might be more tied to the team than individual exploits or stats. If the Horned Frogs can complete a perfect season and make the playoffs it won't be in spite of him. But it might take that to win.

RB Nick Chubb

Georgia Bulldogs


Last year RB Todd Gurley was supposed to mount a Heisman challenge and he was brilliant...for about three games. With him unavailable the Dawgs turned to Chubb, who was no less productive, and less injury prone. That performance showed that Chubb is ready for the complete workload and he should put up some serious numbers in the toughest conference in America. Like Boykin he probably needs team success as well. Georgia needs to win the SEC West at least.

QB Cody Kessler

USC Trojans


Playing quarterback at USC might come with one of the biggest Heisman advantages around. It is a glamour position and Kessler is in a great spot to build on his success of the past two seasons while also adding the kind of team success that has eluded the Men of Troy of late. The rumour is that this is going to be the best USC team of this decade and a PAC 12 championship and playoff berth will certainly have Kessler in the public eye. Assuming that happens he does not have to do much more than continue to be one of the most efficient quarterbacks in America. The rest will take care of itself.

QB Jeremy Johnson

Auburn Tigers


The Gus Malzahn system is effective. He has proven that he knows how to develop killer running games and turn his quarterback into stars. For the last couple of seasons he was working with a converted safety at QB, Nick Marshall, but this year he will be handing the keys to Jeremy Johnson, an impressive specimen comparable to Cam Newton. Like Newton, Johnson has the speed and power to be a significant running threat while also being able to take advantage of a defense the way that Marshall never could. He could easily repeat what Newton did on campus, including earning a Heisman trophy to add to the Auburn trophy case.
