2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Odds

2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Odds

Training camp is approaching and more and more props and futures continue to be posted around the market. MVP and Offensive Rookie of the Year odds have been out for some time now. However, Defensive Player of the Year odds have just been made available.

Last season, Khalil Mack narrowly beat out Von Miller for the award. Mack was third on Sportsbook.com’s preseason odds list at +600, behind J.J. Watt and Miller.

Mack tops the current preseason list, with Watt, who is hoping to be back and healthy for the entire 2017 campaign, slightly behind. Watt has won the award three times in his career, a feat that only he and Lawrence Taylor have accomplished. No other active player has won more than one of these bad boys and the only other active players besides Watt and Mack to win the award are Luke Kuechly and Terrell Suggs. The last time a defensive back won the award was in 2010, when Troy Polomalu won at the safety position.

These odds may differ greatly when other books begin to offer them, so keep an eye out for updates throughout the pre-season. For what it’s worth, there were a couple of mid-season updates last year if you’d rather wait until after the season begins to make a bet like this.

Initially published on July 24th

The top of the list is dominated by pass rushers. The oddsmakers clearly believe that Joey Bosa’s rookie performance was no fluke, as he is the only player besides Mack and Watt with shorter than 10/1 odds.

The top DBs listed are Landon Collins and Tyrann Mathieu at 20/1. If you feel that the streak of defensive ends and linebackers winning the award will come to an end, those two are the favorites to end it.

The number one overall pick, Myles Garrett, looks to make a splash in Cleveland…God knows they need someone to turn the franchise around. His 33/1 odds are tied for 12th best on the list. To put things in perspective, Bosa, last year’s top selected defensive player, was listed at 250/1 on the preseason odds.
