This coming Sunday will be the last Sunday without football until the Super Bowl is over. The National Football League is one of, if not the most popular sport in the world at this time. The NFL is also the sport that gets the most betting action.
You can bet on many aspects of a football game. Some people like to just bet on games, while others will bet on anything that they can. One thing that they can bet on is which team will lead the league in quarterback sacks. The odds have been released for which team will lead the league in sacks.
Here’s a look at a few of the teams with the best NFL Props odds to lead the NFL in sacks for the 2021 season.
2021 NFL Interceptions, Sacks Odds Preview
Washington Football Team +600
Ron Rivera’s squad has a defensive line that will be menacing for opposing quarterbacks. The WFT has spent their last four first-round picks on defensive linemen. Chase Young and Montez Sweat are the best duos of defensive ends in the league.
Any of their front four can put pressure on the quarterback, and the linebackers also have the ability to get into the backfield. If they stay healthy, this team has the ability to get a ton of sacks.
Los Angeles Rams +650
So, when you think of the Rams defense, you automatically think of the best defensive lineman in the game, Aaron Donald, and rightfully so.
However, the main reason that the Rams are one of the favorites to lead the league in sacks is because of their secondary. Jalen Ramsey and company hold their coverage long enough to give Donald and Leonard Floyd time to get into the backfield.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +650
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl last season. Usually, when a team wins the Super Bowl, they can’t afford to keep some of their key players. However, this wasn’t the case in Tampa Bay, as all 11 starters from last year’s defense return for this season.
Tampa Bay will hopefully benefit from a full season of Vita Vea. Vea was a big key to their Super Bowl victory. Tampa Bay had the league’s best rushing defense last season, holding their opponents to an average of 80 yards per game. With Vea drawing double teams, the other defensive linemen and linebackers will be able to get upfield to pressure the quarterback.
Pittsburgh Steelers +650
The Steelers could have one of the best defensive lines in football this season. Even though Cameron Heyward has played a lot of football, he can still be a force. TJ Watt is quickly becoming one of the best defensive players in the league, and he has shown that he can get to the quarterback.
Stephon Tuitt was healthy last season and totaled 11 sacks. Combine these three with some other dynamic defenders, and you have a combination that shouldn’t have an issue getting to the opposition’s quarterback. Look out for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as they could lead the league in sacks in 2021.
