Young’s profile is probably the largest of the remaining three finalists, but he might split votes with teammate Justin Fields. Fields has thrown 40 touchdowns with just one interception in leading Ohio State to an undefeated season.

Hurts’ support is the biggest mystery of any finalist. He is the only player representing the Big 12, and he should receive votes west of the Mississippi River, but there are two big questions regarding his candidacy.

The first question is whether voters have Oklahoma fatigue. Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy in 2017 and 2018, and voters might be inclined to vote for other players just to have support someone other than a Lincoln Riley quarterback.

AP Player of the Year: QB Joe Burrow, first winner from LSU

  AP Player of the Year: QB Joe Burrow, first winner from LSU LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is The Associated Press college football player of the year in a landslide vote. Burrow, who has led the top-ranked Tigers to an unbeaten season and their first College Football Playoff appearance, received 50 of 53 first-place votes from AP Top 25 poll voters and a total of 156 points. Ohio State defensive end Chase Young was second with three first-place votes and 29 points while Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields was third with 43 points.

Total first-place votes for Joe Burrow

  • Over 805 First Place Votes -500
  • Under 805 First Place Votes +300

Only two Heisman Trophy winners have received more than 800 first place votes. O.J. Simpson received a whopping 855 first-place votes in 1968, easily winning the Heisman Trophy over Leroy Keyes and Terry Hanratty, and Troy Smith trounced Darren McFadden and Brady Quinn to claim the Heisman in 2006 with 801 first-place votes.

Since there are 870 Heisman Trophy voters representing six different regions, the under might be a good bet as some voters are likely to go against the grain. Regional ties typically run deep in Heisman voting, and a half dozen players are worthy of votes. In addition to the other three finalists, players like J.K. Dobbins, Jonathan Taylor, Chuba Hubbard, CeeDee Lamb, Travis Etienne, and Trevor Lawrence may receive votes.

Will Joe Burrow break O.J. Simpson’s record of 855 first-place votes?

  • Yes +300
  • No -500

The best bet on the board is the ‘No’ here. Since there are only 870 voters, Burrow would need to receive 98.4 percent of the first-place votes on Saturday, and that’s very unlikely to happen given the regional biases we have seen in the past.

For example, even though Marcus Mariota was the third biggest winner in Heisman history back in 2014, 37 voters backed Melvin Gordon III and 49 voters took Amari Cooper over the Oregon quarterback. Even players like Trevone Boykin, Jameis Winston, Tevin Coleman, Dak Prescott and Bryce Petty received first-place votes, so Burrow is very unlikely to top The Juice here.
