247Sports – "Bovada updates Heisman Trophy odds for 2018"
"Off the board earlier this year, Clemson's true freshman signal caller is now tied for the second-most likely quarterback to win the award with several others. No one has seen a surge like Lawrence, who is expected to be the Tigers' No. 2 when the season starts behind Kelly Bryant. But as America's top-rated quarterback in the 2018 class according to the 247Sports Composite, there's going to be pressure on Clemson's staff to play him early this fall. And considering Bryant's noticeable limitations downfield against Alabama in last season's College Football Playoff, perhaps Lawrence gets an opportunity to shine in big games long before the semifinals if the same issues persist."
