Odds to win the 2011 Heisman Trophy
Two footballers within the state are amongst the top 16 favorites to win the 2011 Heisman Trophy. SBG Global, an online betting service are taking bets on Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson and Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins. Robinson, the 2010 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year is set at 5-1. Cousins seems to be a better bet at 33-1.
Either way, both guys will need some “bad luck” – pun intended. Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, who would have been the #1 overall pick had he entered the 2011 NFL Draft, is the favorite at 3-1.
If you’re looking at me for the five guys I think will end up in New York City in December, I’ll go with Luck, Robinson, LaMichael James, Trent Richardson and Case Keenum. It’s definitely Luck’s to lose…and I don’t think he will let that happen.
