Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt currently leads the NFL with 16 sacks, and with five games still remaining in the regular season, some believe he could beat the record.
Former New York Giants pass rusher Michael Strahan owns the record for the most sacks in a season with 22.5.
While Watt is just seven sacks away, oddsmakers are not as confident in his chances.
Watt is +200 (2/1) to break Strahan’s sack mark this season, -300 (1/3) to fall short, courtesy of BetOnline.
The 27-year-old is already tied with James Harrison for the Steelers’ single-season sack record. He did with his 3.5-sack effort in Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens.
While the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs have protected the quarterback fairly well all season, the Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns and Ravens are all top ten in sacks allowed.
