BetOnline proclaims RG3 the Heisman winner

December 09, 2011

Robert Griffin III
QB Griffin from Baylor

Well maybe it’s not official yet, but all you need to do is look at BetOnline.com’s Heisman Trophy odds to determine that it is a foregone conclusion that Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III will win college football’s most prestigious individual award Saturday.

Once the five Heisman finalists were announced last weekend, BetOnline named Alabama running back Trent Richardson the -170 favorite. That quickly changed as money started pouring in on RG3 at +300. Within a couple of hours after opening the odds, RG3 was the new favorite at BetOnline.

Despite the constant odds changes, bettors kept pounding RG3. Less than a week later and RG3 is the massive -2000 favorite.

“It’s rare to see such an explosive move in odds like that,” stated BetOnline’s Dave Mason. “It’s pretty obvious to me anyways that word has leaked – RG3 will definitely collect the hardware Saturday.”

Others disagree with Mason’s sentiments as money is still coming in on the other finalists. Who is your money on? Do you think RG3 is a lock, or is there value in the earlier favorites – Richardson and Andrew Luck?

BetOnline 2011 Heisman betting odds

Robert Griffin III                                               -2000

Trent Richardson                                              +375

Andrew Luck                                                      +500

Montee Ball                                                       +2500

Tyrann Mathieu                                                +4500

 

Odds are subject to change.

SA Take: We like a small play on Richardson and a medium play on Luck here. No way we would lay those heavy odds on a QB from Baylor.
