Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald has already won two Defensive Player of the Year awards, and he’s the betting favorite to win a third this year.
The odds at MGM have Donald as a +750 favorite to win the award. If he does, he’ll join J.J. Watt and Lawrence Taylor as the only three-time winners of the award.
Bears pass rusher Khalil Mack has the next-shortest odds at +1000, and after Mack comes Watt, who has +1200 odds to win the award for a fourth time.
Watt’s brother, Pittsburgh’s TJ Watt, is at +1500, and both Bosa brothers are on the board as well, with San Francisco’s Nick Bosa at +1300 and the Chargers’ Joey Bosa at +2500. Last year’s winner, Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore, is at +1500.
Among the interesting long shots are Washington rookie Chase Young at +5000 and Yannick Ngakoue, who is currently on the Jaguars but may be traded before the season starts, at +8000.
