2021-22 NBA DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR ODDS

Betting On The NBA DPOY

Marcus Smart won the 2021-22 NBA Most Improved Player Award following an impressive season that saw the Boston Celtics earn the three-seed in the Eastern Conference. The win for Smart marks the first time DPOY has been awarded to a guard since Gary Payton with the Seattle SuperSonics back in 1996. Prior to this year, Rudy Gobert was named DPOY in three of the last four seasons, with Giannis Antetokounmpo being the only other player to receive the honors during that timeframe.
