During the course of the offseason it has been very interesting to follow the Detroit Lions' Super Bowl odds. Just last year they were complete long shots at best, but a good finish to the 2010 season has resulted in the Lions' odds getting much better, especially over the course of this offseason.
The Lions started out the offseason with 40-1 odds to win the 2011 Super Bowl. Just a few months later, however, the Lions' odds dropped all the way down to 20-1 at the MGM Casino. Now those odds have dropped even more thanks to continued betting activity on the Lions.
#Lions have gone from 75/1 to 18/1 to win Super Bowl at MGM sportsbook. "We can't stop the money on Detroit," manager says.
The Lions' odds to win the NFC are even more impressive. They were once 30-1, but now they are all the way down to 6-1. At the MGM, those odds are the same as the Falcons, Saints, Cowboys, Giants and Bears. That, to say the least, is pretty shocking.
