When I make this type of futures bet I will spread the money around. This year I am making four bets and since all of them are at least +800. If one of them hits I will make a profit. I would never bet on just one guy. There are just too many injuries to do that.

My Four Picks to Win the 2017 Heisman Trophy
Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama
Last year he started off slow but down the stretch he was a monster and showed his talent in a 180-yard playoff semifinal game against Washington. A leg fracture knocked him out of the college football title game against Clemson and his recovery meant he was limited in spring drills, but he’s expected to be fully healthy this fall. One thing to consider. It is a great recruiting tool to win or at least be in the playoffs every year. But, to get those top recruits at the skill position it is also important to point to a recent Heisman Trophy winner. Riding Scarbrogh to the a national championship could do both.
Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
From late 2014 to early 2015, Chubb ripped off 13 consecutive 100-yard games for the Bulldogs and looked like a Heisman candidate. Then the leg injury in 2015. Last year he just didn’t get the playing time or commitment from the coaching staff to be close to what he was before. This is his last season at Georgia and I expect them to ride him for all he is worth. He is in the right conference and already has the name recognition.
Jake Browning, QB, Washington
The Huskies star quarterback put together a legitimate Heisman run last year, however a late-season loss to USC ended his chance. He doesn’t have the top regular season schedule this year so the Huskies will have to make it to the playoffs like last year for him to have a chance. If he can run the table he will be a Heisman finalist and with the weak defenses he will play against there will be several opportunities for him to run up some big stats.
J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State
A fifth-year senior for one of the best programs in the country. He has the schedule to get a edge on the competition. A week two game at home vs. Oklahoma gives him that early shot to get ahead of the competition. Add that to later games vs Michigan & Penn State and he can lock up his ticket to New York.
