Lions’ offseason recap
Head coach Matt Patricia was fired during the season and replaced by Darrell Bevell. The Lions hired Campbell this offseason and then traded longtime starting QB Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams for quarterback Jared Goff and draft picks.
In free agency, they added several low-end veterans in RB Jamal Williams, WR Breshad Perriman and LB Alex Anzalone, among others. They traded for DT Michael Brockers and allowed WR Kenny Golladay to sign with the New York Giants.
In the NFL draft, they bolstered the offensive line with OT Penei Sewell with the seventh overall pick. They added a pair of defensive linemen on Day 2 of the draft, staying consistent with Campbell’s tough mentality for the team.
Detroit Lions’ Super Bowl 56 and 2021 NFL futures picks
The Lions are expected to be one of the worst teams in the league in 2021. They might end up being a tough, physical team, but there is almost no chance of them winning their division, the NFC or the Super Bowl.
If you are looking for two bets to make, go with the super chalky -700 (bet $100, win $14.29) that the Lions WILL NOT make the playoffs, even though there is almost no value.
As for their win total, go with UNDER 5 WINS (-110) (bet $100, win $90.91). They will likely be in contention for the No. 1 pick in the draft, which will allow them to draft their eventual replacement for Goff at quarterback.
