Detroit Lions are Vegas favorites to sign Giants safety Landon Collins

Things just went from interesting to... slightly more interesting.

Forgive us if we’re pushing the Landon Collins thing a little too hard, but free agency is a week away, and we’re admittedly a little excited.

After 24 hours of Detroit Lions players blowing up Collins’ social media with pleas to join the team, Vegas has joined in on the fun.

According to online sportsbook site, the Lions are listed as favorites to land Collins in free agency. Here’s a look at the current odds:

Lions: +265 (win $265 on a $100 bet)
Cowboys: +400
Buccaneers: +400
Chiefs: +400
49ers: +500
Washington: +500

Of course, simply being Vegas favorites doesn’t inherently mean anything. In fact, Vegas may simply be picking up cues from these Lions players aggressively recruiting Collins on Twitter.

Regardless, it adds some more fuel to the fire, and with Collins now officially not receiving the franchise tag, it looks like free agency is going to get real interesting when the new league year starts next week on March 13.
