Braxton Miller New Heisman Favorite

With returning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel wallowing in his own problems, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is the favorite to win the Heisman, according to oddsmaker, Bovada.  The controversial Manziel has dropped all the way to ninth, just behind Clemson QB, Tajh Boyd.

South Carolina defensive monster, Jadeveon Clowney, is given the second best chance of winning the Heisman. Lousville QB Teddy Bridgewater is third, Alabama signal caller A.J. McCarron is fourth and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is fifth.

Looks like 2013 will be a quarterback year, as Bovada lists 17 QBs and only 7 RBs in the 28 players they list odds. Clowney is the only defensive player who has been given a chance of winning the Heisman.
