Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray surpasses Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa as Heisman betting favorite

ESPN

For the first time all season, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is the betting favorite to win the Heisman Trophy — in both the legal and offshore markets.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa opened as the third-favorite at 10-1 odds in June at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, behind Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor (7-1) and Stanford running back Bryce Love (5-1). Murray was tied for the seventh-best odds at 20-1.

Tagovailoa became the favorite at the SuperBook in August before Alabama coach Nick Saban even declared him the starter, and remained that way all season. Tagovailoa was the -200 favorite (Murray +225) when the odds were taken down in November, as required by the Nevada Gaming Association for voted-upon events. At Caesars, the odds were even more in Tagovailoa's favor before being taken down (Tagovailoa -450, Murray +450).
