Detroit Lions Betting Odds

The NFL came to Detroit in 1934 when the Portsmouth Spartans moved to the Motor City after four seasons in Ohio and renamed themselves the Lions. Bettors have been making wagers on  this team for almost 90 years, making it one of the NFL’s oldest franchises. With the exception of a six year stretch in the 1950’s when Detroit won three NFL Championships and played in a fourth title game, success has been fleeting. The Lions are one of only four teams in the NFL (and only team from the NFC) to never play in the Super Bowl. [+]

On the plus side, the Lions originated the idea of playing on Thanksgiving afternoon giving fans and bettors alike one of the NFL’s great traditions.

Detroit Lions Betting

Given the parity around the NFL Detroit football fans and bettors keep hoping at the start of every season that the Lions will finally take their place amongst football’s elite and return the Lions to their championship winning glory days. With some of the oldest rivalries in the NFL on the schedule every year and almost 90 years of history to draw from look no further than here for the best Detroit Lions betting lines LIVE all season long.
