2022 NFL DPOY Market: July 21

By Eric Pauly

The 2022 NFL season is on the horizon, and while teams have been gearing up for training camp, oddsmakers have been busy setting future odds for the NFL awards. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, T.J. Watt (+700) and Myles Garrett (+700) are the favourites to win the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2022. Aaron Donald (+750) rounds out the top three favourites to win this award in 2022. 

After the top three favourites, all players have +1000 odds or longer to take home this award. Micha Parsons (+1000), a hybrid outside linebacker, has the best odds for a non defensive end to win the award, Derwin James (+3500) has the best odds for a safety, and Jaire Alexander (+5000) and Jalen Ramsey (+500) are tied for the best odds of any cornerback to win this award.

After finishing in third place in 2019 and second place in 2020, T.J. Watt took home the Defensive Player of the Year Award honours last season. Watt had 22.5 sacks which led the league last year and he has all the tools to be a repeat winner. Watt has +700 odds, tied with Garrett for the best odds, to win the Defensive Player of the Year award in 2022. Garrett has been a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks, and he has improved his pass rushing ability every season. Garrett has never finished in the top-five finish in DPOY voting, but there are no doubts that he is an ascending player and he can take another giant leap forward this season.

Aaron Donald currently sits third in odds. One of the best defensive players in NFL history, is one of the favourites to win this award for a reason. Donald took home this award in 2017, 2018, and 2020. He finished third in voting last season and there is no reason why Donald will not be in the conversation to win this award for the fourth time at the end of the 2022 season.

The 2022 NFL Season kicks off in less than 50 days, so there is time to find value in the Defensive Player of the Year market. Defensive ends normally win this award since they get to the quarterback and make plays on the football, but do not count out cornerbacks who record a lot of interceptions. With so many different factors included in DPOY voting, I would lead toward taking a flyer on Darius Leonard (+3500) to win the award since he makes a ton of tackles, causes fumbles, and picks off passes.
