Which Big Ten player has the best chance to win the 2011 Heisman Trophy?

Recently bodog released their odds of the best college football players’ chances to win the 2011 Heisman Trophy.

There were seven players from the Big Ten on bodog’s list, and you can place bets on who you think will win college football’s highest honor.

Here is a look at all the Big Ten players odds to win the 2011 Heisman Trophy.

The Big Ten player with the best odds of winning the Heisman Trophy is Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson at 15/2.  According to bodog he has the fourth best chance of winning the Heisman Trophy among all college football players.

The player on bodog’s list with the longest odds to the win the Heisman Trophy is Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa at 95/1 odds.

What stood out to me on this list was that both Wisconsin running backs James White and Montee Ball have the same odds to win the Heisman Trophy at 80/1.  I don’t know if there have ever been two running backs on the same team that have had the same odds to win the Heisman Trophy going into a season.

Also another thing that stood out to me was that there was no player from Ohio State who made the list.

Here is the list of all the Big Ten players and their odds of winning the Heisman trophy:

Denard Robinson (QB Michigan) 15/2
Kirk Cousins (QB Michigan State) 35/1
Taylor Martinez (QB Nebraska) 75/1
James White (RB Wisconsin) 80/1
Montee Ball (RB Wisconsin) 80/1
Marcus Coker (RB Iowa) 90/1
Dan Persa (QB Northwestern) 95/1

  1. No love for the savior of Gophers football, Marquis Grey!?

  2. Taylor Martinez (QB Nebraska) because moving to the Big 10 will make him a superstar because the teams are weak.

    Edwin Baker….Michigan State. Denard Robinson will likely pile up the yards but he will have to significantly reduce the number of drive killing interceptions and his defense will have to be a lot better in order for UM to win enough games to keep Denard on the map.

  4. I agree …. That is a terrible idea .. They should not killed Bruce Wayne only son,, I lot of people wish and hopethat the Mantel of the dark night will be passed down.. They should not kill &qht&;tuisoquot; Robbin"

  5. I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours lately,
    yet I by no means discovered any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as
    you probably did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.
