BetUs.com odds for 2009 Heisman Trophy Winner.

At first glance you may think we made a mistake with some of these odds, but with Tebow, Bradford, and McCoy such large favorites to win this year’s Heisman Trophy, Las Vegas and Sportsbooks are offering huge long shot odds on everyone else. While there’s a really good chance that one of the top 3 or 4 players on the board will win Colleges most prestigious trophy, some of these odds are too good to overlook. For those who don’t know how these numbers work, it couldn’t be easier: just multiply your bet to the number next the player to see what you could win. Running Backs like LeGarrette Blount or Joe McKnight are giving such large odds that a $40 bet would pay for an entire week in Mexico. While we wouldn’t recommend betting too much on any of these guys, here are a few helpful tips that Gridiron Experts would like to share with you:

Tip1: Never bet on a WR to win the Heisman. Not since Desmond Howard of Michigan in 1991 has there been a wide-out to take the award.

Tip2: Everyone loves the Quarterback. In the last seven years the only guy that wasn’t a QB to win the Heisman was Reggie Bush.

Expert Picks

Florida’s Tim Tebow makes the most sense to win the Heisman, but with rumors of the offense becoming more balanced, Tebow might not be the top favorite. In preparation to go to the NFL next year Tebow has convinced his offensive coordinator to run a more pro style offense which won’t be as flashy and will not rack up as many yards. Sam Bradford drove the Sooners to the Big 12 Conference Championship and to the BCS Championship Game in 2008 also surprising many by taking the Heisman award last year. Either way you look at it, the odds aren’t great for any of the top picks and with too many uncertanties your best bet would be to take a shot at a tier two QB or a couple small running back bets.  Avoid the top three QB’s as they’re not paying enough to risk a bet.
