Heisman Trophy Preview
Pop quiz over the last 71 Pre-season Heisman Trophy candidates to enter the season at better than 18-1 odds to win the trophy, how many have won? …..
One! Marcus Mariota
With that said Club Level loves Mason Rudolph of Oklahoma State. The hype train around this senior QB has started so make sure you got on this early. Currently at 28-1, grab Rudolph and watch him pick apart the Big12 all year long with the best trio of receivers in college football. ~ $200 to win $5600
Best Bets for Reaching the Four Team Playoff
Ohio State is led by senior QB JT Barrett and baring a major injury should march through a relatively easy Big10 schedule. The sting of getting shut out in the playoff last year is still eating away at Coach Meyer and you can bet he’s going to have his team charged up for the year to get back and show that was a fluke. Currently getting +150 for the Buckeyes to get to the playoff. Play it $200 to win $300.
Another repeat here with the Washington Huskies. Great QB and RB tandem and they gain a lot of experience last year getting to the final four. Look for them to repeat as they prove last year wasn’t a true representation of the boatload of talent in the great Northwest. Currently at +400 to make the playoff and at 4-1 it’s one of the best values on the board. ~$200 to win $800.
Regular Season Win Props
Clemson has had one of the most talented rosters in all of America over the last two years. Losing the majority of their championship squad will prove to be too much to overcome. Go under 9 wins and grab the plus money. ~$200 to win $240
The dark horse candidate to make it to the final four is Oklahoma State. Mason Rudolph already made an appearance on the Heisman watch but this team could win a ton of games this year and bolster our chances and cashing that play. If he’s going to win the Heisman they have to win over 9 games. Should be undefeated by the time they clash with Oklahoma. ~$200 to win $240
Georgia Tech and UCLA should both win over 6.5 games this season. Consistent coaching, returning talent and favorable schedules is a recipe for success. GTech over 6.5 $230 to win $200 and UCLA is a little heftier price at $350 to win $200 but should get there pretty easily.
The fact that you can still grab plus money on the best ensemble of talent in the country and the best coach in college football history is pretty astounding. Second year QB Jalen Hurts should improve on last years #’s and Bo Scarbrough lead this great offensive unit anchored by the best line in the country. The defense will be stout as usual. Grab Alabama before it’s too late at +$250. ~$500 to win $1250.
Bombs away play for the title is Oklahoma State. Common theme from this write up but that offensive unit is going to be something special. Mike Gundy is a man now, he’s over 40 and his squad is LOADED!!! Could be a tough matchup for any team in the country and if they can play any defense whatsoever they can hang with anyone. At +$3500 it’s worth a shot with a $100. ~$100 to win $3500.
