The four Heisman Trophy finalists were revealed on Monday evening, and the list reads like a who’s who of future NFL first-round draft picks.
Heisman Trophy Final Four
The 2019 Heisman finalists that will be making the trip to New York City are LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, and a pair of Ohio State Buckeyes as defensive end Chase Young and quarterback Justin Fields round out the list.
Now, if you believe that Las Vegas oddsmakers know a thing or two about prop bets like the Heisman Trophy winner, then this presentation is all a formality.
Every sportsbook in the country has LSU quarterback Joe Burrow walking away with the 2019 Heisman. You can’t even make any money off wagering on Burrow unless you want to risk the farm.
Heisman Field an Odds finalized. Can anyone beat LSU's Joe Burrow.

The latest odds have Burrow listed at -2500 – meaning you have to wager $2500 to win $100. That is not a smart wager. Now, if you believe that somehow one of the other three finalists is going to win, that is a risk worth taking.
With Justin Fields (+1200), Chase Young (+2000), and Jalen Hurts (+2500), a small wager could score big. Hey, it could happen.
Just remember, in 1997, Michigan’s Charles Woodson beat out Tennessee’s Peyton Manning. In a huge upset, Woodson became the first two-way player in over 20 years at the time to win the award.
