Sports betting fans backing Aaron Donald is no surprise. The Los Angeles Rams defensive end s the current reigning DPOY has won the award three times in his career and is widely viewed as the best defensive player in the NFL.
He is coming off an impressive 2020 season where he put up 13.5 sacks, 45 total tackles, and 27 solo tackles. Donald’s play alone helped Los Angeles Rams betting fans cash in big all season.
Myles Garrett is also seeing plenty of action at online sportsbooks. The Cleveland Browns defensive end is one of the key factors in the Browns’ success on defense.
Garrett put up 12 sacks, 48 total tackles, and 33 solo tackles during the 2020 NFL season. While losing out to Donald last season, Garrett could potentially have a stronger season than Donald 2021, leading to big ones for longshot betting fans.
Another name on this list that longshot betting fans should be keeping an eye on is JJ Watt. Watt recently signed with the Arizona Cardinals and may be coming in with something to prove.

At one point, Watt was viewed as the best defender in the NFL similar to how Donald is viewed today. With being in a new situation in Arizona, Watt could shine, taking the team’s defense to the next level.
The Cardinals defense struggled in 2020 and the team failed to make the playoffs. A noticeable improvement in 2021 could make longshot betting fans taking the +2800 odds on Watt major winners.
