Detroit Lions NFL Betting

In 1966 the American and National Football Leagues merged with the Super Bowl, born in January of 1967. The Detroit Lions are yet to take the field for Super Sunday. Since 2000, the Lions have one three playoff appearances. Matt Patricia is the latest flop as head coach. Dan Campbell is the newest coach that will slam his head against the wall. One constant through all of this misery has been the Ford Family. While the Ford’s are credited with having good intentions, the fact remains they aren’t getting results. With an opening win total of five, gamblers are not expecting much in the Motor City for 2021.

Dan Campbell played in the NFL from 1999 through 2009, including 2006-2008 with the Lions. Before being named head coach, Campbell was the assistant head coach and tight ends coach of the New Orleans Saints. His connection to Sean Payton and a winning franchise was a major factor in his hiring. Campbell was an interim head coach in 2015 with Miami and went 5-7.

General manager Brad Holmes takes over for the failed Bob Quinn. Previously, Holmes was director of college scouting for the Los Angeles Rams. His first major move was trading long-time Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams for Jared Goff. Stafford’s star-crossed Lions’ career lasted from 2009-2020.

Jared Goff has had a steep fall from being the first player taken in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Rams. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2017 and 2018 before a falling out with Rams head coach Sean McVay. McVay thought that Goff could play through some injuries that kept him out of the lineup. For Goff, this is a fresh start with a new organization and coach.

Holmes received average marks for his first NFL Draft. Offensive tackle Penei Sewell of Oregon went seventh overall and was an obvious but great pick. He’ll keep Goff protected for as long as they are together.

Defensively the Lions were a disaster in 2020, ranking 27th overall and 29th for points allowed. Aaron Glenn came with Campbell from the New Orleans Saints, where he was defensive backs coach.

Detroit’s last NFL championship was in 1957, nine seasons before the NFL’s first Super Bowl campaign. The only time the Lions made the NFC championship game was in 1991 under head coach Wayne Fontes. The team has certainly had its share of top talent with such legends as Lem Barney, Calvin Johnson, Alex Karras, Dick “Night Train” Lane, Bobby Layne, Dick LeBeau, Barry Sanders, Charlie Sanders, and Joe Schmidt, all Pride of the Lions.
