Current odds have Penn State running back Saquon Barkley as the heavy favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

Bovada currently has the odds set as follows:

Saquon Barkley/-225

J.T. Barrett/+400

Bryce Love/+600

Baker Mayfield/+800

Josh Adams/+1,000

Mason Rudolph/+3,300

Lamar Jackson/+5,000

It’s not a surprise that Barkley is leading the way. He’s had an incredible season so far for Penn State. The electric running back has been borderline unstoppable. A close loss against Ohio State still wasn’t enough by itself to derail his Heisman hopes.

One name I’m shocked to not to see on this list is Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. Through eight games, he’s on an undefeated team, and has ripped apart defenses. The freshman entered the season under the radar, so that makes sense to some degree. However, at this point there’s no reason for him not to be on the list.
