Betting On The Detroit Lions To Win The Super Bowl
Betting on the Detroit Lions to win the Super Bowl is like finding a four-leaf clover. The Lions are an absolute train wreck after a disappointing 2020 season in which they extended their playoff drought to four straight seasons. In addition to that, of the 17 times that Detroit has made the playoffs, they have not been able to turn them into any significant runs.
The Lions have parted ways with Matthew Stafford after trading him to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for Jared Goff who is slightly less consistent. Other than the questions surrounding Goff under center for the Lions, there aren’t many bright spots for them. Players like Kenny Golladay, Deandre Swift and TJ Hockenson continue to lift this Lions team with some exciting plays, but that is all people will get out of them.

They will find their Super Bowl odds, NFC Championship odds and their odds to win the NFC North as well. Bettors will also find some Lions player props as well as their playoff history.

What Are The Detroit Lions Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
The Detroit Lions are amongst one of the lowest of the lowest groups in the NFL as they have never won a Super Bowl nor have they ever made a trip to the Super Bowl either. By the looks of things now, it does not look like they will be making an appearance anytime soon. With that said, the Lions Super Bowl odds can be found towards the bottom of the odds board.
Along with the Lions not having made it to the Super Bowl even once, their bad aura continues as they have not even been apart of an NFC Championship game in the Super Bowl era. Being that they do not have enough to compete with the contending teams in the conference, their NFC Championship odds are sitting at the bottom of the tank.
The Lions are in one of the tougher divisions in the NFL as it is usually a fight until the end to see who walks away with the division title. The Lions are currently on a division championship drought as they have not won the division title since 1993 which was their fourth. That said, the Lions do not look like they will be competing for the NFC North title anytime soon which is why their odds are sitting far behind.
