Odds for the 2019 Heisman Trophy winner include some familiar names at the top, both of who, are at the center of college football's greatest rivalry over the last few seasons.

Trevor Lawrence, who led Clemson to a 44-16 romping over Alabama in the National Championship, is currently +250 to win his first Heisman for the upcoming season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. He is tied with Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who was on the losing end of the title game this past January.

Tagovailoa was a Heisman finalist last season, ultimately losing out to Oklahoma quarterback, and top pick in the NFL draft, Kyler Murray. While Lawrence is considered the better NFL prospect, both he and Tagovailoa are even money for the Heisman heading into the 2019 college season. Clemson and Alabama rank No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in the latest AP Top 25 poll.

After the top two, another duo of quarterbacks in Jalen Hurts and Justin Fields are both +1100 to win the trophy. While Hurts is replacing Hesiman winner Murray at Oklahoma this season, Fields is replacing Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins at Ohio State.

The field also features two running backs from schools who produce a ton of them, in D'Andre Swift (+1400) of Georgia and Jonathan Taylor (+1400) of Wisconsin. Finally, Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm rounds out the field at +1600.
