Lions Odds 2024 | Best Lions Spreads, Props, & More

Last Updated: Aug 11, 2023

Are the Detroit Lions ready to crash the party and establish themselves as one of the NFL’s legitimate contenders? It’s been a long time coming, but the Lions should find themselves in the mix this season, if all breaks right.

The oft-beleaguered franchise will be in the spotlight starting Week 1, opposite the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the Thursday Night Kickoff Game.

Let’s dive into the Lions’ odds for the upcoming 2023-24 season.

Is it wise to rest your hopes on the perennially disappointing Lions? Eh, not necessarily. Nevertheless, I’m going to buy into the hype.

The Lions got on track late last season, winning eight of their final 10 games. If not for a dismal 1-6 start, they would’ve been a playoff team. Look for them to stay hot in 2023-24.

The offense is solid with Jared Goff under center, and Aidan Hutchinson is a star on the defensive line.

Lions Make Playoffs Odds

  • Yes (-165)
  • No (+140)

Lions Make Playoffs Bet: Yes (-165)

The early season schedule looks challenging. Four of the first seven games are on the road, including trips to AFC contenders Kansas City and Baltimore. In addition to that, the Lions have tough home tests against Seattle and Las Vegas before Halloween.

If Detroit can tread water early, however, it should be in fine shape. I don’t expect anyone to run away with the NFC North, which should bode well for the Lions’ playoff chances.

Lions Futures Prop Bets

Lions: Winning Record (-190)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 Units

Maybe you don’t completely buy Goff as the answer at quarterback, or you think Dan Campbell is all bravado and no substance. That’s your prerogative.

Regardless, with Amon-Ra St. Brown, first-round draft pick Jahmyr Gibbs, Hutchinson and more, Detroit should have enough talent to navigate a winnable division and end up on the right side of .500.

At (-190), I’m hammering this value.

Lions: Division Winner (+130)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Chicago should be drastically improved in Year 3 with Justin Fields, but it may be a stretch for the Bears to go from worst to first practically overnight. Minnesota seemed poised to take a take back after winning 13 games in 2022, and I simply don’t know what to expect from Jordan Love in Green Bay. How can I?

Detroit, of course, could play well and still finish in second place, but it’s not as if there’s a runaway favorite in the NFC North. At plus-odds, I’ll take my chances with the Lions winning the division.

Lions: NFC Winner (+1000)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 Units

Feeling bold? At the moment, there seems to be a big gap separating the NFC’s top three teams (Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Dallas) from the next tier. That said, the Lions, who own the conference’s fourth-best odds at (+1000) and their OL is ranked No. 4 in our NFL offensive line power rankings, will at least be in the conversation if Goff stays healthy and the defense continues to improve.

Dream big, Detroit.

How to Bet on Lions Games in 2023

How to Bet Lions Moneylines

NFL moneyline wagers are the simplest forms of NFL bets. All you have to do is pick a team to win a given game, and if they do, you win your bet.

Since winning is the only requirement to cash your bet, the odds for NFL moneylines can vary greatly depending on each team’s implied probability of winning (or losing) that game.

Favorites are designated by a minus symbol (-200), whereas underdogs are represented by a plus symbol (+200).

If the Lions are a (-200) favorite against the rival Packers, you would have to bet $20 to turn a $10 profit. If Detroit was a (+200) underdog, you would profit $20 off a $10 bet.

  • 2022 Lions Moneyline Record: 9-8

How to Bet Lions Spreads

Betting the spread is the most efficient way to wager on NFL games, as it presents two evenly priced options. The spread, which is assigned a value by the books, is the number of points that the favorite is expected to win by against the underdog.

If the Lions are 6-point favorites over the Bears, the spread for that game will be set up like this: Lions -6 (-110) vs Bears +6 (-110).

In this scenario, the Lions would have to win by more than six points for you to win your bet. If they were to win by a pair of field goals, your bet would push and you would recoup your initial wager.

Detroit was the second-best NFL team against the spread in 2022, and should be a decent bet moving forward as the roster seems to have improved over the offseason.

  • 2022 Lions Against the Spread Record: 12-5

How to Bet Lions Over/Unders

If you don’t want to pick a side, you can still bet on Lions games by wagering on the total number of points scored.

Sportsbooks set the amount of combined points they expect both teams in the game to score, and then you can bet on either the Over or the Under.

If you expect Goff, St. Brown, and the Lions to light up the scoreboard, then you’ll probably want to take the Over. If you think a specific game could be more defensive, then you would bet the Under.

Detroit’s games exceeded scoring expectations last season, but they should be priced higher this year after the additions to the offense.

  • 2022 Lions Over/Under Record: 10-7
