Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart captured his first career NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award last season. Smart received 37 first-place votes, becoming the first guard to win the award since Gary Payton in 1996.

Who are the early favorites to walk away with this year’s hardware? Here’s a look at updated odds at the online sportsbook:

NBA Defensive Player of the Year Odds: Preseason DPOY Odds

Player  Team  Odds
Rudy Gobert MIN +400
Bam Adebayo MIA +650
Robert Williams BOS +800
Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL +850
Mikal Bridges PHX +1200
Draymond Green GSW +1400
Marcus Smart BOS +1400
Anthony Davis LAK +1400
Evan Mobley CLE +1600
Ben Simmons PHI +1800

Unsurprisingly, it’s Minnesota Timberwolves big man and three-time DPOY recipient Rudy Gobert leading the way at +400 odds.

Should Gobert reclaim the crown, he would join Hall of Famers Dikembe Mutombo and Ben Wallace as the only four-time winners in the history of the NBA.
