Detroit NFL Handicapping Insight
2017 Detroit Lions Win Total Odds: Under 8 (-125)
The Detroit Lions have a successful season last year, but it could have been so much better if they would have finished the season strong.
They had a 9-5 record with two games left and they looked like they would be able to win the NFC North and get a good seed in the playoffs.
But instead they lost their last two games against the Giants and Cowboys and backed into the playoffs with the six seed. They faced the Seahawks in the first round and they bounced them.
The big question for the Lions this year is if they can build off that success of a 9-7 record or if that was an abnormality and they will fall back into the pack this year.
Lions Win Total Odds: Key Additions
Going into the off-season the Lions knew they needed to make some moves to sure up their offensive line. They signed TJ Lang and Ricky Wagner to big long term deals to try to fix that problem.
It will be interesting how these additions will help the Lions, and if they can fix the big weakness from last season.
Outside of the offensive line the Lions made a couple of smaller moves to help the defense. They signed defensive tackle Akeem Spence from The Buccaneers and also defensive end Cornelius Washington from the Bears.
Lions Win Total Odds: Key Departures
The Lions didn’t actually have a lot of guys leave in free agency. They lost offensive linemen Riley Reiff and Larry Warford who left to go make more money somewhere else.
Although they lost both of those guys, it doesn’t actually seem to be much of a concern to the Lions. They got the guys locked up in free agency that they wanted to start on the offensive line.
Lions Win Total Odds: Season Preview
The big questions coming into this season for the Lions can be boiled down to two things. Do they have a number three and four receiver and what will happen with the defense?
Marvin Jones and Golden Tate were both great for the Lions last year but after those two they really didn’t have anyone step up. If they want to have success this year they need someone to step up in that third wide receiver role and take some pressure off the guys at the top.
The defense also needs to play better this year. They could not get any pressure on the quarterback and that needs to change for the defense to improve.
2017 Lions Win Total Odds: Under 8 (-125)
The Lions actually hurt themselves last year by finishing second in the division because it gave them a little tougher schedule this year.
They have a brutal schedule to start the season facing the Giants, Falcons, Vikings, Panthers and Saints before they go on a week six bye. If they come out of there having gone 3-2 they have to feel very good about themselves.
But I don’t think that is what will happen. I think they will struggle at the beginning of the season and that will set them up for failure all season long.
They have Matthew Stafford and he will be good again this year, but I think the defense has too many questions still unanswered for this team to seriously compete.
I think this team will finish with around six or seven wins, which covers the under for them.
