Latest Heisman odds for Deshaun Watson

The 2016 Heisman Trophy finalists were announced on Monday evening and Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson was named as a finalist along with Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers, and Oklahoma wide receiver Dede Westbrook.

So what are the odds for the different finalists for this weekend's Heisman Trophy award?

Lamar Jackson (QB Louisville) -4000

Deshaun Watson (QB Clemson) +1000

Baker Mayfield (QB Oklahoma) +3300

Jabrill Peppers (S Michigan) +5000

Dede Westbrook (WR Oklahoma) N/A

"If postseason football is a major factor, the only plausible alternative to Jackson is Deshaun Watson," Oddshark said. Clemson is in the college playoffs for the second year in a row thanks to the quarterback’s play on offense. And though many seem to think Watson has fallen off since last season, he has actually performed better in the passing game. He was hampered on the ground due to an ineffective running back situation at the beginning of the season. However, Watson leads all FBS quarterbacks in total yards and touchdowns since November 1."

Watson passed for 23-for-34 for 288 yards, three passing touchdowns, and an interception to lead Clemson to the 2016 ACC Championship in a 42-35 win over Virginia Tech. He also rushed 17 times for 85 yards and two scores.

For the season, Watson has completed 329 of 487 passes for 3914 yards and 37 touchdowns. He ranks fourth in the nation in completions, fifth in touchdown passes and eighth in completion percentage and eighth in total offense. His 37 touchdown passes are a Clemson season record.

Watson finished third in the Heisman voting last season as he threw for 3,512 yards with 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
