Oh, brother, there are some tough defensive dudes in the NFL.

And that includes stud siblings Nick Bosa (Niners) and Joey Bosa (Chargers).

Both bros had solid 2021 seasons and each is a longshot betting option to win the 2022 Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) award. That’s according to DraftKings, one of the best sports wagering sites out there and one that, like many other great sites, are offering awesome bonuses.

But back to the boys: Nick is listed at +1500 to win DPOY while Joey is at +2000. Those are nice odds and Nick, who had 15.5 sacks last season, looks like a fairly smart play.

The three betting favorites at DK are Cleveland’s Garrett Myles (+700), Pittsburgh’s T.J. Watt (+700) and L.A. battering Ram Aaron Donald (+800).

The cases for betting on any of those three are pretty strong. Myles is going after his first DPOY award, Watt, who won it last year, wants to join his older brother J.J. as a two-time winner, and Donald is trying to become the first player in NFL history to win the award four times. He’s tied at three with J.J. Watt and Lawrence Taylor.

However, the player I like most, +1000 odds no less, is Dallas’ Micah Parsons.

All he did for the Cowboys last year in his first season out of Penn State is have 84 tackles (20 for losses), three forced fumbles, and 13 sacks, becoming the only rookie in the past 25 seasons with 80-plus tackles and 10-plus sacks.

That earned Parsons the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors and that could be just the beginning. I expect him to get 20 or more sacks this year.

Parsons, who turned 23 in May, was recently named No. 16 on the list of 100 best players in the NFL.

Impressive for such a young tenacious talent who’s being mentored by former Cowboys and Broncos star DeMarcus Ware, a nine-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Famer.

That’s good company, kid, and I’ll bet he keeps up the hard work all the way to earning the NFL’s top defensive honor.
