Heisman Trophy Odds: Manziel Plummets

Johnny Manziel’s odds of winning a second straight Heisman Trophy have plummeted.

Manziel, Texas A&M’s explosive dual-threat quarterback, came out of nowhere to win the Heisman last season and was the favorite to repeat this season at most sportsbooks offering odds on college football’s most prestigious honor. Manziel was 9/2 to win the Heisman in July, but has now dropped all the way back to 12/1 at Bovada.

Houston Betting Odds Preview

Houston’s final season in Conference USA resulted in a 4-4 straight-up record in conference play and a 5-7 SU record overall. This was a major drop off from 2011 when it reached national prominence with a 13-1 SU mark, but the Cougars did not have Case Keenum running the show at quarterback.

They did manage to close out the 2012 season with a 40-17 romp over Tulane as 12.5-point home favorites to snap a three-game losing streak.

Georgia Tech Betting Odds Preview

Flex option guru Paul Johnson piloted Georgia Tech to 11 wins, an ACC title, and an Orange Bowl berth in his second season in Atlanta four years ago. However, the Yellow Jackets haven't done much since, going 21-19 overall, 14-11 in ACC play, and 1-2 in minor bowls.

So this program, in its sixth season under Johnson, might be in need of a little re-invigoration. But with the talent that's returning for this season that's definitely a possibility.
