TJ Watt has put up tremendous defensive numbers being second in the NFL in sacks (9), having 30 tackles(24 solo), and recording one interception so far this season.
As the Steelers continue to win, sports bettors can expect his betting odds to continue to shorten throughout the season.
Prior to the season start, Watt has +1100 odds to win DPOY. The early favorite was Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Donald now has the second shortest odds to win.
Donald has had an impressive season defensively so far in his own right. He has 26 tackles, 15 solo tackles, is tied with Watt at 9 sacks, and has forced 3 fumbles. The Rams also have the number two defense behind his play.
What has pushed Watt ahead at online sportsbooks is the consistency the team has been winning. Pittsburgh’s defense is one of the driving forces behind the team’s success, and voters look at the team’s success as well as individual play when giving out awards.
With a top 10 defense and an undefeated record, Watt may be a shoe-in for the DPOY. Sports bettors may want to lean in on his odds now before they shorten later in the season.
