Detroit Lions Odds to Win Super Bowl LIV

Detroit Lions Betting

Many are still left scratching their heads as to how Matt Patricia’s Detroit Lions allowed the Arizona Cardinals to storm back and ultimately earn a tie late last Sunday. Playing not to lose ultimately caught up with the team that’s expected to bring up the rear of the NFC North standings, and that’s something Detroit media has been harping on ever since the game went final. The Lions will get a shot at redemption back in Motown in Week 2, but it won’t come easy with a fired up Chargers squad set to oppose them after coming out with an exciting overtime win against the Colts. This game marks the first meeting between these franchises since 2015.

Detroit Lions Week 2 Preview

A quick glance of last week’s box score in the desert indicates what should’ve been a decisive Lions victory. Detroit outgained the Cardinals by 90 yards, won the time of possession battle by nearly 10 minutes and racked up five sacks to Arizona’s three. Checking the boxes in all those categories should’ve equated to a victory, but it didn’t and now they have to run up against a much better Chargers outfit that has even more talent and experience than the Cardinals brought to the gridiron with them last week. After receiving just 11 overall carries last week, Kerryon Johnson should be in line for a much bigger load this week considering LA just allowed the Colts Marlon Mack to rack up 174 yards and a touchdown on a whopping 25 carries. That near 7.0 yard per carry average should have Kerryon’s fantasy and prop backers salivating over the potential of this matchup!

There isn’t any real notable news to relay in regards to line movement. The Chargers were initially lined 2.5-point road favorites by oddsmakers, and that’s exactly where the number to beat resides 24 hours after the line hitting the board at online sportsbooks. Pretty surprising when you take into account 74 percent of the tickets written to this point have come in support of the road team. It’s likely Detroit’s poor 3-5 SU and ATS marks at home from last season are playing a key role. There has however been a bit of movement in the totals market with the number to beat up to 48 after originally hitting the board at 47. Only 54 percent of the action on the over forced the line move north.

These teams last squared off at Ford Field back in 2011 when the Lions cruised to the 38-10 win and cover as short 1-point home underdogs. The meeting back in 2015 saw the Chargers pull out a slim 33-28 triumph that barely covered the closing 3.5-point NFL odds. The under is 3-2-1 in the last six overall meetings with an average of 46.3 points per game hitting the board. Detroit went off the board dogged in its own house five times last season. It went on to win the first two occurrences outright against the Patriots and Panthers, but then dropped three straight to the Bears, Rams and Vikings by an average of 13.0 points per game.

Detroit Lions Week 1 Recap

The Detroit Lions looked well on their way towards securing their first win of the season in dominating fashion through three quarters of Sunday’s matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. Then the fourth quarter was played. All of a sudden, a 24-6 lead was erased throughout the remainder of regulation when Kyler Murray led the Cards on an 18-0 run to tie the game up with just 43 seconds remaining. Not only did a Detroit defense that dominated a bulk of the game give up the six when it badly needed not to, it also allowed Arizona to convert the game-tying 2-point conversion. And to think, none of it would’ve occurred had the Lions not called an inexplicable timeout right before a play was run that would’ve put the game on ice.

"I’m calling the timeouts," Patricia said. "We’re looking at the play clock trying to get that stuff down and get it figured out at that point. Stafford did a great job of getting it off, but really again, whether it was at 0 (seconds on the play clock) or 1, either way, the mechanics, the way that works with the officials, the guy back there, he’s staring at the play clock and he sees it. So again, we’d rather be in third-and-5 than (take a penalty and be in) third-and-10 in that got-to-have-it situation. We’ve just got to go out and execute the next play."

Patricia can say he called it until he’s blue in the face, but he’s only protecting his offensive coordinator. Even worse, neither of the coaches allowed Matthew Stafford to take control and unleash the death blow. The Lions veteran quarterback was noticeably upset on the sideline immediately after the mishap that ultimately cost the team a 1-0 start to the season. It’ll be interesting to see how this escalates with the former Georgia Bulldog coming off the worst campaign of his professional career as a starter under the new coaching staff. Either way, it won’t change the fact that Detroit is now 0-0-1 and sickeningly failed to cover the closing NFL betting lines in a game it dominated through the first 46+ minutes.

The Lions are the only team that was around before the Super Bowl era to have never appeared in the Big Game. And they’ve sniffed a Super Bowl just once in their lifetime. That came during the 1991 season when the Lions went 12-4, won the NFC Central and reached the conference championship game after knocking off Dallas in the divisional round. The Lions were pasted by Washington starting a current streak of nine straight playoff losses.

Two years later the Lions would win their last division title and begin a streak of three straight playoff appearances, matching a franchise record. However, they would fail to get a win and go into a funk. They’ve qualified for the postseason just five times since 1995 and never in back-to-back years. In 2008 the Lions became the first team to go 0-16, prompting the firing of Rod Marinelli.

The franchise does have four championship banners to its credit though. Joining the NFL in 1930 as the Portsmouth Spartans, the team relocated to Detroit after four seasons and was rebranded the Lions. In just their second season in Detroit, the Lions captured the first of their championships. The 1950s were a decade of success for the club. The Lions captured three more titles, the last coming in 1957, and played in another title game.

The Lions own the second-longest NFL Championship drought behind only the Arizona Cardinals franchise and they haven’t won a division title in 25 years. The Lions have as many NFC North/Central titles as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who moved out of the division when the league realigned in 2002.
