Heisman Trophy Odds: Cam Newton Remains Heavy Favorite To Win

On Saturday afternoon, Auburn quarterback Cam Newton remains the heavy favorite to win the 2010 Heisman Trophy, to the extent that most betting outlets aren't taking bets for the winner. Instead, National Sports Advisors is allowing for an over/under on how many points Newton will receive.

As of 3:30 p.m. Eastern, the odds of Newton receiving more than 2,350 points stands at -140. This means that in order to win $140 on this bet, you would need to place $100.

Quite tellingly, most of the action lies in which will win second and third place in the voting results. NSA currently has the second-place voting as follows:

Andrew Luck (QB Stanford)    -400 
Kellen Moore (QB Boise State)    +1100 
LaMichael James (RB Oregon)    +350

As you can see, Kellen Moore is the long-shot. If he were to win, a $100 bet would net you $1100. Here are NSA's odds on the third-place finalist:

Andrew Luck (QB Stanford)    +350 
Kellen Moore (QB Boise State)    +550 
LaMichael James (RB Oregon)    -400

These odds, of course, are subject to change as we get closer to 8 p.m. If there are any significant odds updates between now and then, we'll let you know. Follow along with this StoryStream for updates.
