NFL Odds: Detroit Lions Given 7.7% Chance To Go Winless in 2021

It’s been a rough start for the Lions. They’ve lost in seemingly every conceivable way, including an NFL record-setting 66-yard field goal as time expired. At the end of the day though, 0 wins means 0 wins to oddsmakers.

The Lions started the year with +7000 odds to go winless. That’s an implied 1.4% chance. After an 0-5 start, those odds have shrunk to +1200, or an implied 7.7% chance to go winless. To put that into perspective, only 4 teams have better odds to win the Super Bowl than the Lions do to go winless.

Basically, oddsmakers think it’s as likely for the Lions to go winless as it is for the Ravens or Packers to win the Super Bowl. Put another way, at +1200 the Lions have the better odds of going winless than Lamar Jackson or Patrick Mahomes do of winning the MVP.

When the Lions went 0-16 in 2008 they lost 6 games by one score. This year’s Lions team already has three, one-score losses. With games against the Bengals, Eagles, Steelers, Bears, Vikings, and Falcons on the schedule, one would think they could get at least one win this season. Yet, with each passing loss, it seems harder and harder to imagine them getting that elusive first win.

In Week 6 the Lions play at home against the Bengals. They are priced as underdogs again at (+162). The Bengals are coming off an emotional overtime loss so maybe if there is a week they win it could be this Sunday.
