Super Bowl Odds Update: Lions Franchise Worst Super Bowl Odds Nearly Double

The Lions entered this year with their worst Super Bowl odds in team history, at +25000.  One would expect after losing to a Super Bowl contender by only one score; those odds would at worst stay the same. Oddsmakers disagree.

The Lions now sit last in the NFL with +42000 odds. That’s an implied chance change from 0.4% to 0.2% to win the Super Bowl. In the scheme of things, the odds change isn’t a big deal. The Lions move from the 2nd worst to the worst odds in the NFL, and they see just a slight decrease to their implied chance.On the flip side, having your odds nearly doubled after a tough fought Week 1 loss against a Super Bowl contender is a tough look. It shows that oddsmakers essentially think that Week 1 performance was a fluke, and even then, the Lions couldn’t win.

Is this the worst Lions team in their history? No, it probably isn’t. It’s hard to see this team going winless after a strong Week 1 performance led by Jared Goff and the offense. So why are their odds so bad? They simply have no chance to compete with the top teams in the NFL, especially after the 49ers, a league-average offense, put up 41 points in Week 1. So, oddsmakers made the move.
