Duke's Gunnar Holmberg a Longshot Heisman Candidate

Online sports book has Blue Devil QB on list for top award

SportsBettingDime.com released preseason prop bets for individual skill position players on each Power Five team.

Duke quarterback Gunnar Holmberg was named the top Heisman candidate on the Blue Devils’ roster, although he’s an extreme longshot to win the award.

Holmberg was given odds of +100,000 to win the Hesiman, meaning that a $100 bet on him would earn a $100,000 payout. Every other ACC team has at least one player with better Heisman odds, and, in fact, only two teams in the country have longer odds for their top Heisman hopeful: Kansas (Jason Bean +200,000) and Arizona (Will Plummer, +150,000).

Heisman odds for DJ Uiagalelei, Clemson: +1,200

Heisman odds for Sam Howell, UNC: +1,600
Heisman odds for D'Eriq King, Miami: +1,900
Heisman odds for Malik Cunningham, Louisville: +7,000
Heisman odds for McKenzie Milton, FSU: +9,500
Heisman odds for Kenny Pickett, Pitt: +17,500
Heisman odds for Brennan Armstrong, UVA: +22,500
Heisman odds for Sam Hartman, WF: +27,500
Heisman odds for Devin Leary, NC State: +35,000
Heisman odds for Braxton Burmeister, Va Tech: +35,000
Heisman odds for Zay Flowers, BC: +37,500

Heisman odds for Tommy Devito, Syracuse: +85,000
Heisman odds for Jeff Sims, Ga Tech: +90,000
Heisman odds for Gunnar Holmberg, Duke +100,000

Holmberg also has among the lowest over/under numbers for passing yards and touchdowns of any ACC quarterback. The bar was set at 2,033.5 yards and 15.5 touchdown passes for Holmberg. Only Syracuse’s Tommy DeVito had a lower passing yard over/under, and Holmberg’s touchdown number was lowest among projected ACC starters.
