Detroit Lions Super Bowl 57 Betting Preview

  • The Detroit Lions have +15000 odds to win the Super Bowl in 2022-23.
  • The Lions are third in the NFC North, with +1000 odds to win it, ahead of the Chicago Bears.
  • WR Amon-Ra St. Brown is poised to shatter his O/Us if he can perform at last year’s level.

DETROIT – You don’t get on Hard Knocks if you have a good shot at winning the Super Bowl, and the Detroit Lions certainly do not have a good shot at winning the Super Bowl, based on the bookmakers who have them at +15000 to do so.

Detroit Lions Preseason Playoff Odds

  • Detroit Lions Odds To Win The Super Bowl: +15000
  • Detroit Lions Odds To Win Conference: +6000
  • Detroit Lions Odds To Be First Seed: +10000
  • Detroit Lions Odds To Win Division: +1000

The Lions only won three games in 2021, and their QB situation – although Jared Goff is the starter – is so precarious that Goff doesn’t even have any available props at Bovada, one of the top online sportsbooks.

The biggest change the Lions made was drafting DE Aidan Hutchinson with the second pick in the 2022 draft, but as a rookie, it’s unclear what level of impact he’ll make.

The Lions are still wildly unlikely to win enough games to compete for the NFC North, but they are no longer the whipping boy of the division – their +1000 odds to win it put them third, with the Chicago Bears below them at +1500.

In a seeming reversal of this, the two teams both have the same odds to win the Super Bowl at +15000.

Detroit Lions Player Prop Betting

Given the aforementioned lack of Goff odds on the online sportsbooks – something that does not bode well for his future – the top Lions players to bet on are RB D’Andre Swift and WR Amon-Ra St. Brown.

  • D’Andre Swift 2021 Statistics: 617 Rush Yards, 5 TDs, 452 Rec. Yards
  • Rush Yards: 875.5 (Over -115, Under -115)
  • Rush TDs: 6.5 (Over -115, Under -115)
  • Rec. Yards: 475.5 (Over -115, Under -115)

Swift is a dual-threat, and he managed to put up 452 receiving yards in only 13 games in 2021 – making him a seeming lock to hit his 475.5 receiving yards over.

His rush yards over is much more questionable, as he’s never played more than 13 games in a season, and he’s never rushed for more than his 617 yards in 2021 – he might be too fragile to be a season-long-between-the-tackles RB.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown 2021 Statistics: 912 Rec. Yards, 5 TDs, 90 Receptions
  • Receiving Yards: 850.5 (Over -130, Under +100)
  • Receiving TDs: 5.5 (Over -125, Under -105)
  • Receptions: 80.5 (Over -115, Under -115)

Amon-Ra St. Brown exploded towards the end of the 2021 season, with 401 of his 912 receiving yards coming in the last four games of the year.

It’s remarkable that his receiving yards O/U actually ended up lower than his 2021 total, especially after his performance once he was given the nod as The Guy in the Lions WR room.

If St. Brown’s end-of-season wasn’t a fluke, he’ll shatter these O/Us.
