Traditional markets aren’t the only way to bet on NFL odds. Most advantage bettors (like myself) usually get involved in a few futures markets where they find an edge.

One of the most popular pre-flop markets for bettors this season was the betting standoff for Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) between Steelers linebacker TJ Watt and Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons.

After Watt tore his pectoral muscle during Pittsburgh’s Week 1 win in Cincinnati, Parsons immediately became the de facto favorite.

Micah Parsons’ DPOY odds have shot to +350 at the top of the table. He’s the official betting favorite to win Defensive Player of the Year.

Micah Parsons Madden 23 Rating

Parsons isn’t just creating a stir when he’s wearing his pads. 

A uniquely 21st-century controversy has sprung up around the fact that the popular Madden video game franchise has not adequately rated Parsons as an elite linebacker in the current edition of the game.

Parsons and other NFL players are actively complaining to Electronic Arts about it.

Skip Bayless Micah Parsons

Fox Sports commentator Skip Bayless is a well-known Cowboys fanboy, as he often gushes about on the show.

However, that didn’t seem enough to get Parsons to go on Bayless’ show, Undisputed. Parsons reportedly said he would appear on the show, then ghosted Bayless and cohost Shannon Sharpe.
