Only last year's Heisman winner Caleb Williams (+550) has lower odds to capture the award than Florida State's Jordan Travis.
Summer and schoolusually don’t mix too well, but in this instance, it’s an ideal time to take a look at the college football landscape.
This week belongs to the ACC, and we’re looking at the league’s brightest stars today. Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf as well as Max Meyer each chose their favorite ACC player for Heisman futures.
LEAF’S PICK: Jordan Travis +1000
“Travis has the experience in Mike Norvell’s offense and incredible weapons. If he performs, these will be the best odds you’ll get on the FSU QB all season. FSU will also have high-profile games that will allow Travis to showcase more to the voters.”
MEYER’S PICK: Cade Klubnik +1500
“He was +2500 less than two weeks ago, but he’s still my favorite ACC option even at this lowered price. Clemson gets FSU (Travis) and North Carolina (Drake Maye) both at home, giving Klubnik a strong chance to outshine both. Also did you see what new Clemson offensive coordinator Garrett Riley did with Max Duggan at TCU last season?”
Daniel Parisi has two Wimbledon futures ready to roll ahead of Monday's start, while Max Meyer is eyeing a WNBA total.
THE AGREEABLE ACE
Jannik Sinner: Wimbledon Men's Outright (+1800)
"Not in the hottest of form, but let's not forget he was up 2 sets to love against Novak in the Quarters last year at the All England. At some point, it'll click."
Sebastian Korda: Wimbledon Men's Outright (+3300)
"Extremely talented on grass, made a promising run at Queens and has a lovely run in the top half of the draw."
THE SENIOR EDITOR
Mystics @ Dream: Under 164.5 (-115) [7:30 p.m. ET]
“The Dream and Mystics combined for 195 points on Wednesday in one of the fastest-paced games of the season with 56 (!) free-throw attempts. But since these two just played and the Mystics rank eighth (of 12) in tempo, I think Round 2 will be more of a grind.”
We’re looking for fireworks all weekend long, so tonight we’re boosting odds for six different stars to hit a home run. Check out the new prices for Shohei Ohtani, Pete Alonso, Mookie Betts and more at Power Hour (starting at 6 p.m. ET).

We’ve looked at ACC win totals and Heisman bets so far, here are the top contenders to come away with the conference title.
Clemson (+150): Can new OC Garrett Riley’s (yes, Lincoln’s brother) playcalling launch former 5-star Cade Klubnik into the Trevor Lawrence/Deshaun Watson stratosphere?
Florida State (+150): Expectations are high in Tallahassee, as FSU is looking for its first ACC title since Jameis Winston led the way in 2014. One reason why: There may not be a more feared pass rusher in the country than Jared Verse.
North Carolina (+900): The Tar Heels bring back one of the nation’s top QBs in Drake Maye to go along with 17 returning starters.
Louisville (+900): Fresh off a Big Ten West title at Purdue, new head coach Jeff Brohm will look to make a splash in Year 1 with the Cardinals avoiding Clemson, North Carolina and Miami.
NC State (+2000): Former Virginia QB Brennan Armstrong brings a ton of experience (30 starts) to a roster that had a 16-game home winning streak going till last year’s home finale.
Miami (+2000): The Canes failed to make a bowl game in Year 1 under Mario Cristobal. While they brought in two new coordinators, their ACC schedule is tough with FSU, Clemson, North Carolina and NC State.
Pitt (+2500): Veteran signal-caller Phil Jurkovec is on team No. 3 in his CFB career. Will he find success with a Panthers team that won a combined 20 games (and an ACC title) over the last two campaigns?
Duke (+3500):Mike Elko deserved a standing ovation for his head coaching job in Year 1, as Duke had its most wins (9-4) since 2014. Not bad for a team that had a 13-game ACC losing streak heading into 2022.
WHY WE’LL WATCH: To see if Novak Djokovic can win his eighth Wimbledon title and tie Roger Federer for most all-time. Also who doesn’t love a beautiful grass surface?
RECENT HISTORY: Djokovic has won four straight Wimbledons, defeating a different runner-up each time (most recently Nick Kyrgios). He already won the Australian Open and French Open earlier this year as well, so the 36-year-old Serbian is still at the top of his game. The last player to win before Djokovic was Federer back in 2017.
FAVES: Not surprisingly, Djokovic is favored to win again (-160) in London. Carlos Alcaraz has the second-best odds (+325), but no one else is under +2000.
ACTION REPORT: Most clients aren’t afraid to lay the juice, as Djokovic has snagged 67.2% of the tickets and 78.2% of the handle among all Wimbledon men’s outright future bets.
LONGSHOT LOOK: Alexander Bublik has shifted from +25000 all the way to +8000 over the past week to capture the men’s Wimbledon title.
BET TO CONSIDER: Alcaraz Outright Winner (+325)
Betting on the 20-year-old Spaniard to win at +350 is worth a shot for bettors looking to fade the favorite and get a bit more value. Not only is he the top-ranked singles player in the world, but he’s also proven he can handle pressure by winning the 2022 U.S. Open and advancing to the fourth round at last year’s Wimbledon.
