The college football regular season has come to a close and the majority of teams (except for Army and Navy) are either done for the year or preparing for their respective Bowl Game. The only college football news being decided this weekend, other than the Army-Navy game is which talented player will win the 2012 Heisman Trophy as the most outstanding player in college football.
2012 Heisman Odds
Online sportsbook Bovada.lv has lines available for you to bet on which of the three nominees will win the trophy this year. If you are Canadian then Bodog.ca is where you would have to wager. These are two of the best betting sites for college football wagering online.
Johnny Manziel – QB Texas A&M – 1/15
Manti Te’o – LB Notre Dame – 15/4
Collin Klein – QB Kansas State – 20/1
As you can see Manziel is an overwhelming favorite to win the award, while Te’O is being given an outside chance and Klein is basically being considered as just a QB to fill out the third nomination spot. But let’s look at what each player has done this year:
Heisman Trophy Prediction
Johnny Manziel is the massive favorite to win this award and will likely become the first freshman ever to win the Heisman. He is a dual-threat quarterback who can beat defenses both with this feet and his arm. This is very similar to past Heisman winners Tim Tebow, Cam Newton and RG3.
Manziel passed for an average of 284.9 yards per game, had a passer rating of 155.85, passed for 24 touchdowns, rushed for an average of 98.42 yards per game and had 19 rushing touchdowns. As you can see these are remarkable numbers. Texas A&M finished the season with a 10-2 record, good enough for the #9 rank in the country. They will be playing Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl in January.
Collin Klein really doesn’t have a shot at winning the Heisman. His numbers just aren’t amazing enough and simply don’t compare to Manziel’s. His only chance is if voters really go against Manziel for being a freshman, but still want to give the award to an offensive player.
