BOSTON – The NFL season is in the final five weeks of the year and that means the odds on the Defensive Player of the Year award is shaping up.

NFL Defensive Player Of The Year Odds

- TJ Watt +250
- Trevon Diggs +450
- Matthew Judon +800
- Aaron Donald +1400
- Trey Hendrickson +2000
Making His Case
Judon has been one of the best defensive players this season as has a career-high for sacks this season. Currently, with the third most, his 12.5 sacks is just behind the sack leaders this season. Only 4.5 away from leader T.J. Watt, Judon sits just 3.5 sacks behind second place in Myles Garrett.
The impact that Judon has on the field rather than his individual stats is his benefit though. As a team, the New England Patriots currently allow the third least total yards per game this season at 310 yards allowed per game and also allow the least amount of points per game at 15.4 points allowed - both of which are ahead of the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Judon rounds out the four players that sit with odds under +1000 to win the Defensive Player of the Year and a bet on him could turn out to be profitable if he continues to have an elite season.
