The Best NBA Defensive Player Of The Year Bet For 2021-2022

He’s no stranger to this award and will be in a great situation this season

  • Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (+3300, FanDuel) is the best bet to win the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in 2021-2022. 

  • If you bet $100 on him and he wins, you’ll walk away with a cool $3,400 payout.

  • Green won this award in 2016-2017 and has made three 1st All-Defensive Teams (including in 2020-2021), three 2nd All-Defensive Teams and one 3rd All-Defensive Team in his illustrious career.

  • With superstar Stephen Curry, a healthy Klay Thompson, volume shooter Andrew Wiggins, budding star James Wiseman, ascending youngster Jordan Poole and lottery pick Moses Moody looking to make a difference on the offensive end, Green will likely focus the overwhelming majority of his effort on the defensive end of the floor.

Draymond’s Case

When you think of Draymond Green, what are some adjectives that come to mind?

Gritty?

Tough?

Badass?

Listed at 6’6, Green has been undersized in the frontcourt his entire career, but has made a name for himself due to his uncanny defensive abilities.

Green won the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2016-2017 and has made three 1st All-Defensive Teams (including in 2020-2021), three 2nd All-Defensive Teams and one 3rd All-Defensive Team in his illustrious career.

Yet, FanDuel is listing him at +3300.

Nine players have shorter odds than him. 

That’s just silly.

With superstar Stephen Curry, a healthy Klay Thompson, volume shooter (nice way to put it) Andrew Wiggins, budding star James Wiseman, ascending youngster Jordan Poole and lottery pick Moses Moody looking to make a difference on the offensive end, Green will likely focus the overwhelming majority of his effort on defense.

As the all-time Defensive Box Plus-Minus leader at 2.82 DBPM, per Basketball Reference, Green is still performing at an elite level and may end up with more steals and blocks per game than points scored this season. 

If you’re placing this bet, that’s what you should be rooting for.
