The Detroit Lions were expected to do some great things last season, but the team was less than spectacular and then had problems both on and off the field as they stumbled to a top five pick. Now that the team has regrouped and added some players of need in free agency, it will be interesting to see how they turn things around and improve the win column.
Plenty of people place wagers on the win totals for teams heading in to the year and the fine folks of Bovada.lv have recently updated their odds following the recent moves and news.
Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager of Bovada.lv says:
“NFL Season Win Totals is one of our most popular bets here at Bovada, and as a result, we have had some significant movement based on the amount of money we are taking on certain teams. Arizona, with our second lowest total of 5.5 wins has seen 90% of the action on the over which is the same case for New Orleans, who are only taking over money on their total of 9. The Patriots total, due to the loss of Hernandez and the status of Gronkowski, has dropped from 11.5 to 11 and in turn, the Dolphins who are also getting bet pretty heavily have moved from 7.5 to 8.”
So how does Vegas see the Lions stacking up in the NFL this season? Here are the over/under odds for their 2013 win total:
Over: 8 (+105)
Under: 8 (-135)
If the Lions could get to a .500 record or better, it would be a major turnaround for the Lions who were one of the most disappointing teams in the league just a season ago.
Let’s see if the Lions can make the fans happy.
