Betting On Detroit Lions Online

The franchise formally joined the NFL on July 12, 1930 as the Portsmouth Spartans, based out of Portsmouth, Ohio. Even though they were successful as a team, the club could not survive in Portsmouth, then the NFL’s smallest city. The team was purchased and relocated to Detroit for the 1934 season. Today, the Lions are one of four teams in the North Division of the National Football Conference. They play their homes games at Ford Field in downtown Detroit and have won four NFL titles, their last coming 60 years ago, in 1957.  [+]

It’s the second longest drought behind the Arizona Cardinals. They are also one of four current NFL teams and the only NFC team which has never played in a Super Bowl, along with Cleveland, Houston and Jacksonville.

Football on Thanksgiving Day is an NFL tradition, dating all the way back to the league’s inception in 1920. Currently, three NFL games are played every Thanksgiving, with Detroit hosting the first opponent of the day every year.

Among the list of hall of famers for the Lions include Dick “Night Train” Lane, Lem Barney, Bobby Layne, Dick LeBeau and Barry Sanders. The Lions retired No. 20 specifically for Sanders, even though the number was also worn by Billy Sims and Barney, both of whom were among the top all-time Lions at their positions.

Detroit Lions Online Betting Tips

The Lions finished 2016 with three straight losses to creep into the playoffs at 9-7. They were crushed in their wild card game. The last time the team won a playoff game was in 1991. That’s 26 years to leave your fans with little to cheer about, which included an 0-16 season in 2008.

The offense, led by former first-round draft pick Matthew Stafford, ranked 21st in the NFL last season. Their defense was 18th. Stafford, who is an unrestricted free agent after the 2017 season, is the fourth quarterback to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a single season. He also holds the NFL record for the most comeback wins in a season with eight, which he set last year.

Even though the Lions were 9-4 at one point last season, they were only favored in six games in all of 2016. They have some weapons on both sides of the ball, with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones on offense and Ziggy Ansah and Glover Quin on defense. But this is Stafford’s team. If he does not re-sign with the Lions, it will be a long time before they are 9-7 again.
