Detroit Lions 2020 Season

The Detroit Lions went 5-11 in the 2020 season and finished last in the division. The team underwent a coaching change when Matt Patricia was fired along with the GM Bob Quinn.

The team has moved on from Matthew Stafford and will now turn to Jared Goff to run the offense. However, that is not the only roster move the franchise has made.

Lions Offseason Acquisitions

  • Jared Goff, QB
  • Tyrell Williams, WR
  • Darren Fells, TE
  • Charles Harris, DE
  • Dean Marlowe, S
  • Alex Anzalone, LB
  • Jamaal Williams, RB
  • Penei Sewell, OL
  • Levi Onwuzurike, DT
  • Alim McNeill, DT
  • Ifeatu Melinfonwu, CB
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR

Whether the Lions got better or worse in the offseason is up for debate but most people would agree that the team will be taking a step back in the 2021 season. In that, the NFL betting sites seem to agree.

Detroit Lions 2021-2022 Season Odds

Simply put, the Lions are expected to be awful this season. They are the only team giving the Houston Texans a run for their money as the worst team in the NFL. The betting odds give Detroit a minor edge over Houston, but solidify the Lions as the worst team in the NFC.

Detroit Lions 2021-2022 Total Wins

  • OVER 5 EVEN
  • UNDER 5 -130

Only the Texans have a lower win total but since the UNDER is favored here, giving the Lions a chance to have the worst record in the NFL. With their low win total, it should be expected by fans and sports bettors to see the Lions struggle in their division this year.

Division Winner Odds

  • Green Bay Packers -160
  • Minnesota Vikings +250
  • Chicago Bears +500
  • Detroit Lions +2500

The Lions have finished last in the NFC North in each of the past three seasons and haven’t won the division since 1993. Once all of the odds are connected to one another, it results in the Lions being a long shot to make any sort of playoff appearance.

Detroit Lions – To Make The Playoffs

  • Yes +600
  • No -1200

The Lions haven’t made the playoffs since 2016 and haven’t won a playoff game since 1991. The franchise’s woes are expected to continue in 2021 and maybe even become more severe at that.
