With Spring practice in the rearview mirror, and the chaos of the transfer portal effectively finished after the spring transfer window, which closed on May 1, the rosters for the 2024 college football season are just about finalized, and with that, prediction season can begin and odds for trophies and games can begin to be announced.

The early odds for the 2024 Heisman Trophy winner have been released via DraftKings Sportsbook, and it just means more in the SEC, with the conference boasting six of the top ten Heisman Trophy odds for 2024.

Here's how the top 10 of the 2024 Heisman Trophy odds shake out, with odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook:

Quinn Ewers (+900)

Ewers is returning for his third season in Austin after leading the Longhorns to a College Football Playoff berth in 2023. As one of the two current favorites, Ewers is expected to take another leap in his game with head coach Steve Sarkisian. In 2023, Ewers passed for 3,479 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also rushed for 75 yards and five touchdowns.

Carson Beck (+900)

Beck and the Georgia Bulldogs were one team away from playing for a chance at their third-consecutive College Football Playoff Title. Unfortunately, that team was a Nick Saban-led Alabama. The Bulldogs will have a chance at revenge in week five when they come to Tuscaloosa for the first Alabama-Georgia game that did not feature Nick Saban since 2003. If Beck can have a big day against the Tide, it should propel him into the lone favorite, but he'll have to do so without his top two targets from last season, with Ladd McConkey and Brock Bowers in the NFL. Last season, Beck passed for 3,941 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also ran for 116 yards and four touchdowns.

Dillon Gabriel (+1000)

The first non-SEC player on the list, Gabriel transferred from Oklahoma to Oregon during the Winter transfer portal window. As the oldest quarterback on the list, Gabriel is entering his sixth season of college football. He spent the first three years at UCF, and the last two at Oklahoma. Gabriel was a semifinalist for several different college football awards last season with the Sooners, and Oregon picks up another experienced veteran after the departure of Bo Nix, who was drafted No. 12 overall in last month's NFL draft. Last season, Gabriel threw for 3,660 yards and 30 touchdowns. He also ran for 373 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Jalen Milroe (+1400)

Milroe placed sixth in the Heisman Trophy race a season ago, and is the highest returning player from the Heisman race, with Jayden Daniels, Bo Nix, Michael Penix Jr, Marvin Harrison Jr, and Jordan Travis departing for the NFL. Milroe is facing a new offense for the third time in college, with Kalen DeBoer taking over as the Tide's head coach after Nick Saban retired in January. DeBoer was Penix's head coach last season when he was a Heisman finalist and competed for a national championship. If Milroe can take a leap as a passer, he could be one of the most dynamic players in college football. In 2023, he passed for 2,834 yards and 23 touchdowns. He also ran for 531 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Will Howard (+1500)

The new Buckeye's signal caller was the feature of Kansas State's offense last season, passing for 2,643 yards and 24 touchdowns while rushing for 351 yards and nine touchdowns. Ohio State is looking to return to the high-level quarterback play that it saw from Justin Fields and CJ Stroud and needed a veteran presence in the room after the departure of Kyle McCord to Syracuse. Air Noland and Julian Sayin are behind Howard, and they'll push him in the quarterback competition. Howard will have better weapons at Ohio State than he did at Kansas State, however, with Emeka Egbuka returning for his senior season and Jeremiah Smith, the No. 1 overall player in the 2024 recruiting class, at wide receiver this season.

Jaxson Dart (+1800)

Dart took a leap in his passing game in 2023 under Lane Kiffin and should take another step forward in his development in 2024. Dart gets his top receiver from last season back, with Tre Harris leading the team in receiving with 985 yards last year. His wide receiver three, Jordan Watkins, had 741 receiving yards last season, and will now be the No. 2 behind Harris. Dart's dual-threat ability will help ease the burden of losing Quinshon Judkins to Ohio State, but the Rebels' rushing attack will rely heavily on Ulysses Bentley IV to take pressure off of Dart. The Rebels have a tough 2024 schedule, but if they live up to the hype and are in Atlanta for the SEC Championship, Dart should have a path to New York. In 2023, Dart threw for 3,364 yards and 23 touchdowns, while rushing for 391 yards and eight touchdowns.

Garrett Nussmeier (+2000)

LSU is replacing a mountain of offensive production from last season, including Jayden Daniels, the No. 2 Overall pick in the NFL draft and the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. Nussmeier is known as a passer and will be put to the test in his first season as the Tiger's starting quarterback. In LSU's bowl game against Wisconsin, Nussmeier passed for 395 yards and three touchdowns. Kyren Lacy and Mason Taylor are set to be his top two options next season, but with an offense that prolific last season, there should be little worry about LSU being able to put up big offensive numbers in a pass-heavy offense.

Nico Iamaleava (+2000)

College football has seen what Tennessee looks like with a strong passer at quarterback, and Iamaleava will be no exception. One of the top quarterbacks in the 2023 recruiting cycle, he had a chance to learn Josh Huepel's offense for a season, and he was on display against Iowa in the Volunteers' bowl game, where he passed for 151 yards and a touchdown. His scoring came on the ground, though, with 27 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns over the Hawkeyes. Tennessee returns its top target from last season in Squirrel White, who had 803 yards. Bru McCoy also returns after not finishing last season due to an injury.

Cam Ward (+2500)

The Hurricanes' new signal caller got to Miami in a bit of a roundabout way. He entered his name in the draft but also entered the transfer portal from Washington State. With the death of the Pac-12, Ward would not have played in a Power Five conference if he stayed at Wazzu. Miami provides a fresh start with a team that is hungry for success and the return of "The U." Miami returns every receiver that made a meaningful contribution last season, and added Oregon State running back Damien Martinez, who is a top-three running back in college football.

Avery Johnson (+3000)

Kansas State lost their top receiving threat in tight end Ben Sinnott, however, they revamped their passing attack via recruiting and the transfer portal with the additions of Dante Cephas from Penn State, four-star wide receiver Trae Davis, and three-star wide receiver Jacques Spradley-Demps. Johnson has the talent, he was the 10th-highest recruit in Kansas State history. They also return last season's wide receiver two, Jayce Brown, who had 437 yards and three touchdowns. Avery Johnson started the Wildcats bowl game against North Carolina State, where he threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns.
