For much of last season, Tua Tagovailoa was undeniably the best player in college football. Then, a series of lower-body injuries caused him to slip a bit, which allowed Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray to win the Heisman Trophy.
With that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that Tagovailoa is now a heavy favorite to go No. 1 in the 2020 NFL Draft.
ESPN College Football shared new odds released by The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, which have Tagovailoa as the odds-on favorite at -300. The only other two players who have shorter than 10-1 odds are Georgia’s Jake Fromm and Oregon’s Justin Herbert (both are at 7-1).
