Reigning Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack is not the favorite to secure that honor again, at least according to Bovada.

J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans takes the No. 1 spot, while fellow AFC West pass rusher Von Miller of the Denver Broncos rounded out the top 3. The fifth overall pick in 2014, Mack had 11 sacks,  five forced fumbles and an interception. 

In a recent appearance on the "MMQB Podcast with Peter King," Mack said he wants to go down as an all-time great and guide the silver and black to the game's biggest stage.

“For me, I know for sure, that I want to be one of the best that's ever played," Mack said.

"That's all I want to do — to be be able to put my team in a position to win a Super Bowl, man," Mack added.
