Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is at the top of the latest Heisman odds, but LSU gunslinger Joe Burrow is right on his heels.

According to the latest odds from BetOnline_ag, the Alabama Crimson Tide star is at 7/4, Burrow is at 3/1, Jalen Hurts is at 7/2, Justin Fields is at 9/1 and Trevor Lawrence is all the way down to 12/1.

You can see the full odds below.

Right now, there’s no question at all in the minds of most people that Tua and Burrow are the clear cut top-two choices with Jalen Hurts right behind them. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

When it comes to quarterbacks, I’d have to say those three have had the best seasons. While Clemson has been balling out, winning games and dominating, our guy Lawrence just hasn’t played as well as many expected.

The Tigers are still undefeated, but he’s just not putting up monster stats.

The part about these odds that blows my mind is the fact that Jake Fromm is at 14/1 and Jonathan Taylor is at 16/1.

Thats’s simply absurd, and there’s no other way to put it. Fromm is leading an undefeated Georgia team, and has looked damn good doing it.

I’m not even arguing he should be a top three guy, but 14/1 is laughable.

Jonathan Taylor at 16/1 is even more insulting. Through three dominating wins for Wisconsin, he has 10 touchdowns and more than 500 yards of offense.

What does this dude need to do in order to get some respect? Does he have to start throwing touchdowns as well?
