Bovada: Jadeveon Clowney has 12/1 odds to win Heisman

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

It's early -- too early as they would say -- but that doesn't mean idle speculation isn't fun as Bovada has released its odds list for 2013 Heisman Trophy contenders, and according to them, junior defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is a serious contender next year.

The online sports betting book says Clowney has 12/1 odds to win college football's most coveted award next year.

So who does Clowney have to run over to get to the top? A veritable who's-who of other big-name SEC stars, such as Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, who also has 12/1 odds, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, who has 10/1 odds, and last year's Heisman winner, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who is the odds on favorite to win the award again with 4/1 odds.

Clowney is the only defensive player on the full list of 23 college football athletes who have a chance to win the award.

You may remember Clowney actually received several votes in the 2012 Heisman race, which was good enough for a sixth place finish.

A trip to New York appears to be just one of the defensive end's big goals for his final season as a Gamecock, but the main goal is clear crystal: win the award outright.

"I believe a defensive player can win the Heisman next year," Clowney said in an interview with ESPN.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
