Detroit Lions Super Bowl Betting Odds
The Detroit Lions Super Bowl betting odds are not encouraging for bettors this season. The Lions finished the 2018 season with a record of 6-10, which placed them last in NFC North. It was the team's first year under head coach Matt Patricia. Detroit did not get off to a good start to begin Patricia’s tenure and will look to bounce back into the playoffs for the first time since 2016. The Lions are still led by quarterback Matthew Stafford who threw for 3,777 passing yards and added 21 touchdowns. The Lions will need to lean on Stafford more than ever now.
The Lions will need to add more playmakers to cement their status as a Super Bowl Contender. However, the Lions do have a running back in Kerryon Johnson who ran for 641 yards and three touchdowns in his rookie season. If Johnson can get to the 1,000-yard mark this season it’d bode well for the Lions offense. Continue to check back here throughout the season for the latest Detroit Lions Super Bowl betting odds.
The Detroit Lions Super Bowl 54 betting odds are +10000 tied with the likes of the New York Giants, Arizona Cardinals, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers which isn’t good company to be around when talking about Super Bowl 54. Matthew Stafford will be looking for wide receiver Kenny Golladay often to make plays as Golladay led the Lions in receiving amassing 70 catches with 1,063 yards and five touchdowns, Golladay will be the focal point of Detroit’s passing attack this season. If the Lions want to get back in playoff contention, they will need cornerback Darius Slay to be the defensive leader and shadow their opponents’ best receivers every week.
The Detroit Lions NFC Championship odds are the fourth-longest in the NFC at +5000. The odds show that the Lions aren’t a good bet to be in the playoffs this season. With the eighth pick in the 2019 draft, the Lions selected tight end T.J. Hockenson out of Iowa. Hockenson should be a rookie that comes in and makes an immediate impact for the Lions, giving Matthew Stafford another deep threat in the passing game. The Lions still must make more upgrades to their roster talent-wise but currently constructed, this team could upset some teams that may overlook them throughout the course of the season. This could be the year that the Lions finally ascend from the depths of the NFC and show the progress that they’ve made under head coach Matt Patricia.
