Sam Darnold, USC Trojans quarterback, 9 to 1 odds: The strength of the Darnold cannot be surpassed by any! USC has grown stronger under the Darnold’s watch, and brighter days appear to be ahead.
Jake Browning, Washington Huskies quarterback, 10 to 1 odds: Browning was a Heisman candidate for much of last season before fading late. Is this the year he finishes strong?
Josh Rosen, UCLA Bruins, 12 to 1 odds: Rosen’s season was derailed by injury. Can he put it all together this season?
Luke Falk, Washington State Cougars, 35 to 1 odds: Falk is a bit of a long shot. But a good season by Washington State and he could jump into the picture.
Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma, JT Barrett of Ohio State and Lamar Jackson of Louisville are the current favorites to win it all. Darnold sits 4th, Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley of Penn State is tied with Browning for the 5th lowest odds.
