CLEMSON, S.C. — The college football season has continued to push forward despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The coronavirus has now altered just about every aspect of the college football season and now the Heisman Trophy race can be added onto that list.
Although a date for the Heisman Trophy ceremony has yet to be announced, legal sportsbooks still have the latest odds for who will take home college football’s most prestigious award.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence came into the season a heavy favorite for the award as he became the odds on favorite with +103 odds in early October. Lawrence testing positive for Covid-19 has forced him to enter a ten-day quarantine.
In the span of that quarantine, Lawrence has already missed the Tigers comeback win against Boston College and will not play in Clemson’s showdown against the No. 4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Missing these games due to the coronavirus severely hurt Lawrence’s Heisman Trophy odds, as he’s now slipped into third place on the oddsboard with +375 odds after missing his first game.
Odds to Win 2020 Heisman Trophy
- Mac Jones +125
- Justin Fields +150
- Trevor Lawrence +375
- Kyle Trask +1200
- Devonta Smith +1600
- Najee Harris +2500
Those looking to bet on Trevor Lawrence’s Heisman odds shouldn’t hesitate to do so despite the uncertainty facing his future.
Lawrence will likely return and finish the rest of the season as and as long as healthy he’s the best quarterback in college football. For college football betting fans, keep an eye out for Lawrence’s odds as this could be the perfect time to buy low on longer odds.
While many await the return of Lawrence, Alabama quarterback Mac Jones is now atop the Heisman Trophy odds board with +125 odds.
Jones has played well this season leading the Crimson Tide to an undefeated start. He’s followed by Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields who’s +150 odds place him ahead of Lawrence too.
Between Fields and Jones, the latter probably has the best shot at bringing home the Heisman outside of Lawrence.
Clemson’s schedule lightens up to end the season before they embark on ACC Championship game and the College Football Playoffs.
Clemson Remaining Schedule
@#4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish
@ Florida State Seminoles
vs. Pittsburgh Panthers

With some soft conference games on the schedule, Lawrence will have plenty of opportunities to return to the top of the Heisman Trophy betting odds.
