Not necessarily ridiculous.

I'd bet a lot is us can make up to that amount 😄

Clever wording. I didn't catch the 'up to' part 😆. Just like my favorite sales that are 'up to' 70% off, but the stuff worth buying is 15% off.

His problem isn't getting close to the QB it's being too weak to get the QB on the ground.


They bounce off him like he's in one of those inflatable Sumo Suits.


He really needs to make big strides.

From an article by Shel Kapadia in The Athletic (subscription required) about the ten "best bets" for the upcoming NFL season...


10. Brian Burns to win Defensive Player of the Year (+12500, or 125-1)
This is one where I had to look up the odds about 12 different times to make sure I wasn’t missing something. There are currently 47(!) players with better odds for this award. Has no one watched Brian Burns play football?

He had 7.5 sacks and 16 QB hits as a rookie before bumping up to nine sacks and 21 QB hits last year. That was on a defense that couldn’t cover anyone. The advanced stats love Burns. ESPN tracks pass rush win rate, which measures how often a defender produces pressure within 2.5 seconds of the snap. Burns ranked fourth among edge defenders last year, ahead of guys like Joey Bosa and Chase Young. The film is impressive too. Burns has elite athleticism and an impressive arsenal of pass-rush moves.

At 23 years old, he’s primed for a monster season and could easily lead the league in sacks. Should Donald win Defensive Player of the Year every season? Probably. But if he doesn’t, Burns at these odds is the best bet.

If we find someone on the other side that can make things difficult for the QB I see no reason why he couldn't win the DPOY.  Burns is a beast.
