Et tu, Bovada?

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

When Bovada released their first set of odds for the 2015 Heisman race, we let their omission go.  It was January, brains were frozen, mistakes were made.  It happens.  But now that they've released their second set of odds for the 2015 Heisman race and they've still failed to correct their egregious oversight, well, we feel compelled to act.  This injustice will not stand.

First, the most recent odds for the 2015 Heisman Trophy race, courtesy Bovada:

2015 Heisman odds

Notice someone missing there?  Go ahead, take a look again.

Do these odds look a bit dark?  Gloomy perhaps?  Devoid of, shall we say, a little... Sunshine?  That's right: C.J. Beathard is nowhere to be found in this listing created by so-called expert oddsmakers.  What a travesty!  What a sham!    What a mockery!  What a traveshamockery!

I mean, didn't they see this?  Or this?  Or even this?  (Don't keep watching this clip.) And this? (Again -- don't keep watching.)

And also this (might wanna hit mute):

Are they worried that, like the mighty Gilgamesh Samson (d'oh), Beathard may have lost his mighty powers after shearing his golden locks earlier this offseason?  I mean, OK, that might be a viable concern... but still!  Your loss, Bovada.  But it's fine -- I'm sure you can add him to your Heisman odds next fall, just like all the other Johnny Come Latelys when they see him tear through the competition.  Y'all just missed the chance to be ahead of the curve.
