Too early to talk college football? Nope. Updated Heisman Trophy Odds: Deshaun Watson favored in Vegas at 5-1! pic.twitter.com/f6hqr1TA0T— Johnny Detroit (@Johnny_Detroit) March 28, 2016
You will note that Texas A&M is one of only a select few schools with two players on the list (along with Alabama, Oregon, and Oklahoma). All those other teams finished inside the top 20 last year. Coincidence? You tell me. But the Aggies are the only team to feature a player from both sides of the ball. CFP Playoffs, here we come. Having two players also greatly increases the probability that a second Heisman will be coming to College Station. When you add up 100/1 and 80/1 it comes out to like a 90% chance or something*. Good luck to the rest of the field, you'll need it!
