College Football Futures: Which Players Are Most Popular Heisman Bets?

Bet college football with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

After months of betting on various college football futures markets, let’s see which players William Hill bettors think will be the top Heisman candidates this season.

Spencer Rattler was atop the board at +450 when William Hill Nevada released 2021 Heisman futures on Feb. 22. The Oklahoma quarterback is still in the top spot, though his odds now currently reside at +300.

D.J. Uiagalelei and Bryce Young, first-year starters for Clemson and Alabama respectively, are tied for the second-lowest odds at +650. North Carolina’s Sam Howell and Georgia’s JT Daniels follow at 10/1 each.

Miami’s D’Eriq King is next at 15/1, with Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud right behind at 16/1. Bijan Robinson is the first running back listed at 20/1, where he’s joined by Texas teammate Casey Thompson and USC’s Kedon Slovis. Two more signal-callers are at 25/1: Arizona State’s Jayden Daniels and Mississippi’s Matt Corral.

The above group is where the biggest Heisman odds shifts have occurred so far at William Hill. Thompson was first displayed at 100/1, while Stroud and Corral both originally sat at 40/1.

Rattler not only leads the way in odds, he’s also tops in total number of tickets (12%) and total dollars wagered (14%) among all Heisman futures wagers at William Hill.

For total dollars wagered, Stroud is the only other player to secure a double-digit percentage at 10%. Robinson at 8%, Daniels at 7% and Thompson at 6% round out the top 5.

Yet, Daniels and Thompson have attracted two of the biggest Heisman wagers. One Nevada bettor put $3,000 on Thompson 100/1 for a total potential payout of $303,000, while another Nevada bettor placed $1,000 on Daniels 10/1 for a total potential payout of $11,000.

Daniels, Stroud and Robinson only trail Rattler in tickets, as each has collected 7% in that category. Four quarterbacks have racked up 4% of the total number of tickets: Uiagalelei, Young, Howell and Florida’s Emory Jones (40/1).

One other non-quarterback who has been drawing noteworthy Heisman action is LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. He’s gotten 5% of the total dollars wagered, along with Jones and Corral.

Stingley opened at 125/1, and has since dropped all the way down to 50/1. He’s attracted two $500 wagers at his longshot odds, one at 100/1 ($50,500 total potential payout) and another at 50/1 ($25,500 total potential payout).
