Before the start of the college football season, one fan put $100 on Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson to win the Heisman Trophy.

It was a wise bet. Jackson entered the season as a +5000 underdog, but as of Nov. 14, he was the overwhelming favorite at -5000, according to OddsShark.

The ACC Player of the Year has scored five-plus total touchdowns in five different games this year.

On Friday, the fan sold the ticket for $8,500. If Jackson wins, the ticket is worth $10,100.
