Vegas is certainly bullish on the ​Justin Fields-Ryan Day marriage at ​Ohio State.


The newly minted Buckeyes quarterback was given 12/1 odds to take home the Heisman Trophy in 2019, the same odds as his former teammate and fellow quarterback Jake Fromm. ​He trails Alabama quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa, as well as favorite Trevor Lawrence. 

Fields is expected to start immediately and push former 5-star recruit ​Tate Martell out of Columbus.


If anything, 12/1 might be too low for Fields, especially given the situation he'd be entering at Ohio State. ​​As a backup to Fromm in 2018, Fields went 27-39 for 328 yards and four touchdowns. 


Fields can take off and run, but his cannon of an arm will be perfect for Day's vertical offense. 

​​Even with Dwayne Haskins, KJ Hill, Parris Campbell and Mike Weber all leaving for the NFL, Ohio State is expected to reload with Fields at the center of it all.
