What Are The Detroit Lions Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
The Detroit Lions Super Bowl 57 odds began at +15000 prior to the 2022 NFL Season, but have been in flux ever since. Detroit's Super Bowl odds change based on many factors, some of which are out of the Lions' control. Factors that influence the Lions' Super Bowl odds include how they play in a given week, injury news, and how other teams around the league have performed. Super Bowl odds also reflect the ever-changing likelihood that the Lions make the playoffs.
Betting on the Detroit Lions NFC Championship odds has long meant large payouts to believers in the team. 2022 was no different, as the Lions entered the season with +6000 odds to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 57. Depending on how the Lions are playing and any injury luck along the way, Detroit's odds to win the NFC may get longer or shorter. Updated Lions NFC odds can be found below.
The NFC North has not been kind to the Detroit Lions over the past two decades, as they have failed to take the NFC North crown from the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings since 1993. 2022 could be the year that all changes, as the Lions entered the season with +850. Those odds may have been long, but Lions bettors and fans alike can appreciate that the Chicago Bears were given a worse chance than Detroit with their +1200 odds. The Lions NFC North odds can also be found below.

Where To Bet On The Lions In Michigan?
International sportsbooks like BetOnline and MyBookie are great options for Lions fans, as they won’t have hometown bias like some of the state-regulated books will have. With multiple styles of online betting, many Lions fans prefer to use their phones to wager, but land-based options are available too. There are some right in Detroit just minutes away from Ford Field such as the BetMGM Sports Lounge, FanDuel Sportsbook and the Sportsbook at Greektown Casino.
Detroit Retail Sports Betting Locations
- BetMGM Sports Lounge @ MGM Grand Detroit
- FanDuel Sportsbook @ MotorCity Casino Hotel
- Barstool Sportsbook @ Greektown Casino
When it comes to mobile betting on the Lions, there are two main avenues of play. First, you can use the online sportsbooks that are operating in the state of Michigan under the auspices of the state, such as FanDuel and DraftKings. These sportsbooks are well integrated with the banking system, so you can easily move money into and out of them. However, they do not offer crypto betting. The other option is the sportsbooks located outside of the state – and indeed, outside of the country. These are sportsbooks like BetOnline and Bovada, and they also offer mobile betting to Lions fans in Detroit. These sportsbooks do accept crypto, and they can be used on more phones with less downloads than the state-regulated ones.
2022 Lions Player Props
Betting players instead of the team is a popular option for many NFL bettors, but with a team full of bright young talent such as D'Andre Swift, Aidan Hutchinson, and Amon-Ra St. Brown they become even more popular. Player prop bets can be any number of bets, from receiving yards, to season-long rankings in different statistical categories, or even on different Lions players to win awards. Some of the Detroit Lions award betting odds are:
Lions RB D’Andre Swift stepped into a larger role with the team in 2021, but was limited by the weak offense that he played in, as well as injuries. Swift also technically came off the bench in many games, but he was clearly the main RB in Detroit by the time the season was done. He rushed for 671 yards in 13 games, which would put him on pace for around 800 in the full 17.
TJ. Hockenson Rec Yards 2022 Reg. Season
T.J. Hockenson is one of the premier TE options in the NFL, someone who many fantasy football players will be familiar with. If his receiving yards odds are to be believed, however, fantasy players might want to stay away from the veteran pass catcher, as he’s expected to put up only 675 yards.
Amon-Ra St. Brown Rec Yards 2022 Reg. Season
The Sun God, Amon-Ra St. Brown, burst onto the scene towards the end of the 2021 season, and was one of the 10 best receivers in the league in terms of yards per game in the last few games. St. Brown racked up 912 yards in the 2021 season, which would seem to portend bigger things for him, but the sportsbooks appear to be a bit suspicious.
2022 Detroit Lions Team Prop Bets
For players looking to be on the Detroit Lions without betting on the team to win their division, the NFC, or even the Super Bowl, the best option is through Detroit Lions team prop bets. Team prop bets can be bets on how many points the Lions may score in a game, what Detroit's highest-scoring quarter may be, or on how many wins the team ends with. The two main season-long prop bets for the Lions are on if they will make the playoffs and their total wins. Those betting odds are updated after each week of the season.

Detroit Lions Playoff History
Dating back to 1929, the Lions have not made as much noise in the playoffs as some might have expected given that they are one of the oldest franchises. In their 91 years of existence, they have been able to make 17 playoff appearances with five coming before the Super Bowl era. That includes 4 division championships and 4 conference championships. They have not made it to any Super Bowls during the Super Bowl era.
Lions Playoff Appearances
The Lions first playoff appearance came way back in 1935 under coach Potsy Clark in which that was his only playoff appearance with the team. They made the playoffs four times in the 50s under two different coaches including Buddy Parker who led them to the playoffs from 1952-1954 and George Wilson who led them in 1957. They did not see their next playoff appearance until 1970 under Joe Schmidt and then again in back to back years in 1982 and 1983 under Monte Clark. The Wayne Fontes era in Detroit did not disappoint as he was able to lead them to four playoffs in his eight-year stint in 1991 and 1993-1995. Bobby Ross then took over where they saw two more playoff appearances in 1997 and 1999. They did not see any playoff appearances in the 2000s but did see three in the 2010s in 2011 with Jim Schwartz and in 2014 and 2016 with Jim Caldwell.
Lions Division Championships
In the 17 playoff appearances that the Detroit Lions have been to, only 4 of them have come as division champions. Their first division championship came in 1935 under coach Potsy Clark who was their head coach from 1931-1940. Their second division title came in 1983 under Monte Clark while their starting quarterback at the time was Eric Hipple. In the Wane Fontes era from 1988 to 1996, they saw 2 division championships and both of them came with Rodney Peete under center. Those division titles came in 1991 and 1993 which was also their most recent one as well.
Lions Conference Championships
Along with having 4 division championships, the Detroit Lions also have 4 conference championships as well. Their first one came in 1952 in the Buddy Parker era with Bobby Lane at the helm of things under center. Their second conference title came just one year later in 1953 under Buddy Parker as well and also with Bobby Lane. They then won their third straight conference title in 1954 also with Parker and Lane and their last and most recent conference championship came in 1957 with George Wilson calling the plays but also with Bobby Lane.
Lions Super Bowl Victories
The Lions have unfortunately not won any championships during the Super Bowl era that started back in 1966. They have, however, they have won four NFL Championships prior to the Super Bowl era dating back to their first one in 1935 and their next three coming in the 50s in 1952, 1953 and 1957.
1957 NFL West Divisional Round: Lions Largest Comeback
In their over 90 season franchise history, the Detroit Lions have been one of the NFL’s best franchises when it comes to making up large deficits. The largest deficit they have ever overcome in a playoff game came on December 22, 1957, during the NFL West Divisional Round against the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco took a 27-7 lead on a Gordie Soltau field goal early in the third quarter; however, a 1 yard touchdown rush by Detroit running back Tom Tracy began a run that saw the Lions outscore the 49ers 24-0. The comeback was led by Tracy, who punched in two touchdowns on the game, as well as fellow running back Gene Gedman who found the end zone once as well. Gedman’s touchdown put the Lions ahead 28-27 to complete the 20 point comeback, though kicker Jim Martin would add a 13 yard field goal onto that total to bring the final score to 31-27.
