Detroit Lions Odds, Bet Types, and Team History

The Detroit Lions went 5-11 in 2020, finishing fourth in the NFC North and missing the playoffs for a third consecutive season. Detroit’s continued lack of success prompted major change within the organization in the offseason. The franchise hired Dan Campbell as its next head coach and dealt franchise QB Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams.

Coming back in the Stafford trade was former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff, who is expected to be Detroit’s starter. Goff threw for 3,952 yards and 20 touchdowns against 13 interceptions last season.

Running back D’Andre Swift might see more touches in 2021 after running for 521 yards and eight touchdowns in just four starts. The addition of Jamaal Williams adds a dynamic pass-catcher out of the backfield too. The Lions did lose two of their top three receivers from last year. Newcomers Breshad Perriman and Tyrell Williams are the most senior players in addition to a bevy of young wideouts alongside star tight end T.J. Hockenson (723 yards, six touchdowns).

Detroit’s defense ranked dead last in scoring in 2020, allowing 32.4 points per game. Linebacker Romeo Okwara was a bright spot with 10 sacks while Jamie Collins added 99 total tackles, six pass breakups and three forced fumbles.

The Lions open the 2021 NFL season at home against the San Francisco 49ers. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Lions Rivals

Detroit opened the season 3-3, before stumbling to a 2-8 finish. The Lions placed fourth in the NFC North for the third straight year. Detroit’s last winning season was 2017 and it hasn’t won the division since 1993.

The Green Bay Packers won the NFC North at 13-3, capturing the division for the second consecutive year. The Chicago Bears finished second at 8-8 and clinched a wild card berth, though they struggled after a 5-1 start. The Minnesota Vikings were in third at 7-9, their fewest wins since 2014.

Betting on the Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Lions went 5-11 overall, but fared better against the spread at 7-9. Detroit’s five wins came at a margin of 5.8 points while its 11 losses were by an average of 15.5 points. Here’s an example:

  • Vikings +2.5 (+110)
  • Lions -2.5 (-110)

In this situation, the Vikings are 2.5 point underdogs against the Lions. If Detroit wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Lions would come with a payout of $90.91. If Minnesota won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads

Lions Over/Unders

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say the Packers play the Lions and the over/under is set at 45 points. A wager on the over would require Green Bay and Detoit to score 46 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 44 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 45 points scored.

In 2020, Detroit averaged 23.6 points per game (20th in NFL) and allowed 32.4 points (32nd in NFL). The Lions had one of the league’s best records last year when it came to exceeding point totals, going 10-6 against the over.

FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?

Detroit Lions Moneylines

Detroit was not a team worth picking often when betting the moneyline in 2020. The Lions started 1-3, won back-to-back games and then won just two of their final 10 contests.

Check out this example:

  • Lions -120
  • Bears +210

The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Detroit the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Lions odds would mean every $120 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Bears moneyline was set at +210, meaning a $100 wager would profit $210.

Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Lions moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Detroit would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Detroit Lions Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:

  • Jared Goff 2021 passing yards: 3,750.5

FAQ: Here’s how prop betting works

Lions Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Detroit Lions odds to win the NFC North
  • Detroit Lionsodds to win the NFC
  • Detroit Lions odds to win the Super Bowl
  • Jared Goff’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year

If you’re confident that the Lions are going to turn things around and win the NFC North or can go even further, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
