The NBA Defensive Player of the Year odds are usually tilted towards the top with a select group of favorites. Anthony Davis (+300) of the Los Angeles Lakers and Rudy Gobert (+350) of the Utah Jazz are the early favorites to win the award at FanDuel Sportsbook ahead of the 2021-22 season that starts Oct. 19.

But, NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo (+390) of the Milwaukee Bucks should have a say in the top defensive award if he stays healthy again during the 2021-22 season.

Throughout the early season last year, Gobert and Davis were the leaders to win the award. Gobert ultimately won over Ben Simmons and Draymond Green as Davis became sidelined in mid-February for nearly two months with injuries. Gobert finished the year with a career-high 13.5 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per contest, in addition to leading the league with 5.2 defensive win shares.
