All Lions: Should You Bet on the Lions in 2020?
Bet on the Lions in 2020.
Not my words, but the words of Pro Football Network betting analyst Drew Haynes.
Citing a variety of reasons, he believes the Lions are worth betting on when it comes to the over/under 6.5-win wager.
As Haynes writes,
"With the injection of talent, the regressing rivals in the NFC North and the value presented on sportsbooks based on low expectations in 2020, I am wrapping up this Detroit Lions betting preview by advising these plays, which I have of course also made.
Lions over 6.5 wins (-130) 5 units (Max Bet)
Lions to win the NFC North (+650) 2 units"
He's very bullish on the Lions winning at least seven games in 2020.
Meanwhile, when it comes to winning the division, he's not as optimistic.
I don't blame him, as at the present moment, the Packers -- the reigning NFC North champions -- and the Vikings both seem to be better equipped to win the division than the Lions.
The safest bet of the two is definitely Detroit head coach Matt Patricia & Co. winning more than 6.5 games this upcoming season.
