Detroit Lions NFL Betting

It’s been nearly three decades since the Detroit Lions last won a playoff game. Barry Sanders was entering his third season in the NFL the last time the Lions advanced in the postseason, and it appears that the playoffs are at least another year away entering 2020. Detroit was one of the worst teams in the NFL last season, and the Lions are projected to finish last in the NFC North by the NFL futures odds.

Things could go very badly for the moribund franchise this season. Matt Patricia and the players have not seen eye to eye, and a slow start could snowball into another dismal year. Detroit lost nine straight games to end last year, and the most prolific quarterback in team history is coming off a major back injury.

Matt Stafford missed the last half of the 2019 season after suffering broken bones in his back. The Lions didn’t win a game after Stafford went out with the injury, as neither David Blough nor Jeff Driskel were the answer. The two combined to throw eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions, while Stafford threw 19 touchdowns and five picks.

Back injuries are always tricky, so it’s hard to guarantee that Stafford will be the same quarterback even if he is healthy. Stafford has thrown for over 41,000 yards in his career, and he has been the catalyst of the offense for a long time. There is no good option behind him as Blough returns and Chase Daniel was signed in the offseason, so if Stafford goes down or isn’t the same quarterback, this team is in real trouble.

The receivers are solid. Kenny Golladay has emerged as one of the top young receivers in the league, and Marvin Jones is a reliable veteran. Danny Amendola provides a very good underneath option when he is on the field, but the Lions are looking for more production out of T.J. Hockenson entering his sophomore season. Hockenson was selected No. 9 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, and more is expected from him.

Detroit has not had a great running back since Barry Sanders retired over two decades ago, and only three players have rushed for over 1,000 yards in a season for this franchise since that point. Kerryon Johnson was hoping to break that streak, but he played for only half the year, and the team drafted Georgia’s D’Andre Swift to add another player to the mix.

This defense is not good even though Patricia is supposed to be a defensive guru. The Lions ranked second-to-last in total defense last season, and he has now plugged four ex-Patriots into starting roles. Trey Flowers was good, but not great in 2019, while everyone else underperformed.

Darius Slay will be missed in the secondary, but the team did acquire Desmond Trufant and selected Jeff Okudah with the No. 3 overall pick in this year’s draft. Okudah will be thrown into the fire immediately.
