For anyone trying to have a good post-Super Bowl day, yeah this article isn’t for you.
Just as we wrap up Super Bowl LIV and fully let the 2019 season go, we are reminded the chances of the Detroit Lions taking the national spotlight in the big game are uhhhhhh ..... low.
Per ESPN’s David Purdum, Caesars Sportsbook has determined the Lions’ odds to win Super Bowl LV are 100-1 — the second-worst odds of the league. But misery loves company — also given 100-1 odds are the Dolphins, Giants, and Panthers.
The only two teams with the worst odds, 200-1, are the Redskins and the Bengals.
The new Super Bowl champions have the best odds for a repeat at 6-1 as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs toppled the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, 31-20.
